“The murderer is with us—on the train now…”

Just after midnight, the famous Orient Express is stopped in its tracks by a snowdrift. By morning, the millionaire Samuel Edward Ratchett lays 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.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marie | 10/31/2017

    " Love Agatha Christie. She just has a way of presenting all of these colorful characters, and throwing them together in an impossible situation. Each one of the personalities is someone I would like to have dinner with, even the evil ones! They're still very cool. Hecule Poirot is a bit of a snob, but I still love him. Agatha has such a way of throwing you on a scent, convincing you that you know who the killer is, and flipping the tables on you, over and over and over again! Everytime I think I know, it changes...it's almost like she is the writer AND reader at the same time....she makes effortless changes that have a huge impact on the outcome, and half the time you don't even realise that something has changed...very good listen! "

    " A classic Agatha Christie novel with a huge climax for the whodoneit ending. A very good reads for those detective officianatos . . . the best! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Genio | 6/15/2011

    " Really great mystery, the plot was too fictional though..... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katie | 6/15/2011

    " I couldn't put this book down. Agatha Christie does a great job of developing the many characters, and the surprise twist at the end really made the book for me. An amazing read! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Trish | 6/14/2011

    " Excellent book! Agatha is the queen of mystery! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrea | 6/10/2011

    " Un bel giallo, ben scritto, con una solida costruzione della storia e dell'intreccio di moventi, sospetti, indizi e alibi.
    I personaggi sembrano un po' troppo stereotipati, forse con un adattamento teatrale in mente.
    Lettura comunque molto gradevole.
    "

    " I'd already known the ending when I read this book so it was just a matter of finding out how Hercule figured it out and boy, was I surprised. I wouldn't say anymore because people would still like to read this book. "
