Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie

Murder on the Orient Express
Agatha Christie
1934, Pocket Books, Markham.

This is the story of a murder aboard the snowbound Orient Express in the Calais Coach. A man is stabbed in the night, and it is apparent that the murderer is still onboard. Hercule Poirot, a Belgian detective who is travelling on the coach investigates the murder.

Not long before I picked this book up, I'd seen the movie. So I was aware of the outcome as I was reading. Still, it is so well written that it kept my interest.

It's a wonderfully conceived crime and the characters are all so fascinating.
