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…

“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

-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.”
