Agatha Christie Radio Drama: Agatha Christie – Poirot – The King of Clubs 1951 Poirot


A woman, covered in blood, interrupts a family playing cards. She shouts “Murder!” before collapsing. Poirot is soon on the case. This is one of the few cases (like Murder on the Orient Express) where Poirot considers all the facts and makes a moral exception. The ending has puzzled many Poirot fans. It first appeared in book form the US collection The Under Dog and Other Stories in 1951. It was not until 1974 that the story featured in a UK collection, Poirot’s Early Cases.
