Description: From the Queen of Mystery comes the classic story in which everyone is a suspect. Just after midnight, a snowdrift stops the Orient Express in its tracks. The luxurious train is surprisingly full for the time of the year, but by the morning it has one less passenger alive. An American tycoon is found dead in his compartment, stabbed a dozen times, with the door locked from the inside. Isolated and with a killer in their midst, detective Hercule Poirot must identify the murderer – before he or she kills again.
