Summary/Abstract: This paper will deal with the reasonings in some of the works of Agatha Christie (1890-1976), who is among the foremost representatives of the genre of detective novel. The paper will try to show what kinds of reasoning this author used in her detective novels, whether these reasonings are clear or not, whether the conclusions are drawn from the premises or the conclusions are given first and the premises later, i.e. whether they are based on reasonings in ordinary language.
