Publisher's Summary

Just after midnight, a snowdrift stopped the Orient Express in its tracks. The luxurious train was surprisingly full for the time of the year. But by the morning there was one passenger fewer. An American lay dead in his compartment, stabbed a dozen times, his door locked from the inside.


What the Critics Say

"Need it be said, the little grey cells solve once more the seemingly insoluble. Mrs Christie makes an improbable tale very real, and keeps her readers enthralled and guessing to the end." (Times Literary Supplement)

A Classic Murder portrayed Fantastically

What did you like most about Murder on the Orient Express?

The novel is so wonderfully played out, with the classic reveal at the end, the hidden pasts and deadly secrets. A fantastic listen, extremely entertaining

What did you like best about this story?

The novel of "Murder on the Orient Express" is far superior to the televised version. The original capture Poirot's own love of Justice not the law. It was a fascinating study of what is right and what is lawful.

Have you listened to any of David Suchet’s other performances? How does this one compare?

David Suchet is the embodiment of Poirot and his performance brings this novel to life in a new and revitalising way.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Absolutely! It was fascinating and reverting.

great as usual

very easy to listen to. at times I found myself getting confused as to whether Poirot or the other French character was speaking... but that's acceptable, given they both have similar accents :-)

An interesting take on whether vigilante revenge and violence is ever justified....
