Agatha Christie is at her best in this classic who-done-it mystery set on the famed Orient Express nearly a century ago. She takes one of her most famous literary creations, the Belgian detective Hercule Poirot, and puts him on board the train where a murder is about to take place. Just after midnight on the first night of this fateful trip, the train stops dead in its tracks when it hits a snowdrift. By morning, one of its passengers is found dead, apparently stabbed a dozen times, and with his door seemingly locked from the inside. The enclosed environment of the train makes everyone who is staying in the coach where the dead passenger lies a suspect, with only each other to provide alibis.  Find out who-done-it by ordering this title online through the book links at the top, by calling NCLBPH and requesting a copy or by downloading the title from BARD.
