Antor Trellig, head of a ruthless interstellar syndicate, has seized a supercomputer with godlike powers that could make him omnipotent. The Council offers master criminal Mavra Chang any reward she desires if she can stop Trellig - and horrible, lingering death if she fails. But neither Trellig nor Mavra has taken the Well World into consideration. Built by the ancient Markovians, the Well World controls the design of the cosmos. When the opponents are drawn across space to the mysterious planet, they find themselves in new, alien bodies and in the middle of a battle where strange races fight desperately.

Charlie Trumper's earliest memory is of hearing his grandfather's sales patter from behind his costermonger's barrow. When Grandpa Charlie dies, young Charlie wants nothing more than to follow in his footsteps - his burning ambition is to own a shop that will sell everything: 'The Biggest Barrow in the World'. Charlie's progress from the teeming streets of Whitechapel to the elegance of Chelsea Terrace is only a few miles as the crow flies.

Love the characters which were made so full of life by John Lee, especially Mrs. Trentham, Daphne and the lawyer Baverstock. Could not resist listening at odd hours, while driving to work and even at the Gym - in the quest to know where the story leads.Gripping indeed! Great work by Archer and the narration simply compliments.

What made the experience of listening to Cards on the Table the most enjoyable?

This was my first Agatha Christie and I am glad I made this choice. I am determined to listen to more of her. The best part of the entire listening experience was the narration. Hercules, Battle, Anne, Doors, Lorrimer, Shaitana, or Mrs. Oliver - all of them came out so live as if it's all happening in real.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Cards on the Table?

Cold character Anne

Which scene was your favorite?

Meeting between Mrs. Lorrimer and Poirot where she confesses the murder.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The witness of the window cleaning agent.
