Murder on the Orient Express
Illustrated by Andrew Davidson
One of the most celebrated Hercule Poirot novels, famed for its ingenious setting, carousel of suspects and startling dénouement.
A curious group of passengers is assembled on the Istanbul–Calais coach of the Simplon Orient Express. They include a Russian princess, an Italian salesman, an English colonel – and Hercule Poirot. The morning after the train is stopped dead by a deep snowdrift, American millionaire Mr Ratchett is found stabbed to death, his compartment bolted on the inside. It is clear that the murderer must be one of his fellow passengers – and must still be on the train. One of Christie’s most famous novels, Murder on the Orient Express boasts a truly audacious solution.
The murderer is with us – on the train now…
