Murder on the Orient Express is certainly the most famous Agatha Christie novel, the story is beautifully crafted murder mystery which definitely ranks among the top of the Agatha Christie murder mysteries.

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 is one passenger fewer. An American tycoon lies dead in his compartment, stabbed a dozen times, his door locked from the inside.

Isolated and with a killer in their midst, detective Hercule Poirot must identify the murderer – in case he or she decides to strike again.

The death has occurred in a manner that will implicate one of the twelve passengers of Orient Express and the murderer is in train because due to snow drift, the train has stopped when murder took place.

Having nothing to do in train and being experienced in solving similar crimes, Hercule Poirot takes the case. He interviews all the twelve passengers one by one. interestingly all the suspects have the cast-iron alibis. As no one boarded the train and no on left the train and everyone have cast-iron alibis – the case seems impossible to solve, until Hercule Poirot uses his little grey cells to solve once more the seemingly insoluble murder mystery. Mrs Christie makes an improbable tale very real, and keeps her readers enthralled and guessing to the end.

Murder On The Orient Express is not like any other Agatha Christie books, the plot is ingeniously crafted, character development awesome and this book is filled with lots of twists and turns which will keep readers on the edge of their seats. The train setting is great, suspects are limited, reader will be given all the facts and evidence and everything you need to solve a murder mystery – you just has to sit and think. Even though you sit and think for hours, I am sure you won’t guess who the murder is!
