Description

"The murderer is with us–on the train now . . ."

Just after midnight, the famous Orient Express is stopped in its tracks by a snowdrift. By morning, the millionaire Samuel Edward Ratchett lies dead in his compartment, stabbed a dozen times, his door locked from the inside. One of his fellow passengers must be the murderer.

Isolated by the storm, detective Hercule Poirot must find the killer among a dozen of the dead man's enemies, before the murderer decides to strike again . . .

Praise For Murder on the Orient Express

“What more…can a mystery addict desire?”
-New York Times

“[Moves] smoothly and entertainingly to its surprise conclusion.”
-Chicago Daily Tribune

“Nothing short of swell. [Christie] is probably the best suspicion scatterer and diverter in the business.”
-New York Herald Tribune

“Need it be said—the little grey cells solve once more the seemingly insoluble. Mrs Christie makes an improbable tale very real, and keeps her readers enthralled and guessing to the end.”
-Times Literary Supplement (London)

“A brilliantly ingenious story.”
-Dorothy L. Sayers, Daily Herald (UK)

“It’s tempting to say that Agatha Christie is a genius and let it go at that, but the world’s had plenty of geniuses. Agatha Christie is something special.”
-Lawrence Block, New York Times bestselling author
