fortune telling in Christie

I'm looking for a book - actually I think it's short story - that I read long ago.
Early on, some children make a card reading for a male character. That's the distinguishing feature I remember. The predictions come true so far as I recall.
Does anyone know which novel/short story this is?

    Its in The Hollow when Dr. Christow, before taking off to the country for the weekend, allows his 9 year old daughter Zena to tell his fortune with some Tarot cards. This is when the death card is shown, a harbinger of what's to come. 
  • Thank you. I'll look this up. Though I'm sure that in the story I read, playing cards were used. But this instance of cartomancy is good too.
