Just after midnight, a snowstorm stops the Orient Express dead in its tracks in the middle of Yugoslavia. The luxurious train is surprisingly full for this time of year. But by morning there is one passenger less. A 'respectable American gentleman' lies dead in his compartment, stabbed a dozen times, his door locked from the inside . . . Hercule Poirot is also aboard, having arrived in the nick of time to claim a second-class compartment -- and the most astounding case of his illustrious career.

4.0 Murder on the Orient Express / Agatha Christie
I am surprised by how easily and quickly Dame Agatha’s books slip by. I can certainly see why this is one of her favoured books, loved by many. It does reveal Hercule Poirot at his best, exercising those little gray cells. Now my reading of Anne Holt’s 1222 last year makes more sense—is it ever an h...

4.0 Workout for the little grey cells...
I was given this book by my class when I changed high school in the early 70s, but it whetted my appetite for Agatha Christie and Poirot in particular. TV may have increased exposure, but the little Belgian sleuth was wonderfully fashioned in the novels and this book in particular showcases the writ...

4.0 Murder on the Orient Express
This was my first Agatha Christie and it was a lot of fun! I really liked Poirot's style, with his little tricks in interviewing witnesses and his smartass way of dealing with his co-investigators, if you can call them that. Dan Steven's performance in narrating this audiobook is fantastic, with his...
