Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie

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….

Istanbul, midwinter. Poirot decides to take the Orient Express that at this time makes its route practically empty. The next morning, when he wakes up, he discovers that an American, named Ratcher, has been murdered. The murderer, no doubt, is one of the occupants among which are a proud Russian princess and an English governess. Poirot was present when Jane talked about “getting rid of” her husband, and has even been asked to help her get a divorce. Now, man has died. And yet, the Belgian detective can not help feeling that circumstances do not quite fit. After all, how could Jane murder her husband in the library at exactly the same time she was seen dining with friends? And what can be your mobile when the aristocrat had finally granted him a divorce? Just after midnight, a snowstorm stopped the Orient Express on its march. The luxurious train was surprisingly full for the time of year. But at the end of the night there was one passenger less. An American lay dead in his cabin, stabbed a dozen times and with the door closed from the inside. With the tension increasing, it is Hercule Poirot’s turn to find not one, but two solutions to the case … ‘Murder on the Orient Express’ was taken to the cinema with great success.
