Description

THE MOST WIDELY READ MYSTERY OF ALL TIMENOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE DIRECTED BY KENNETH BRANAGH AND PRODUCED BY RIDLEY SCOTT!

"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 lies dead in his compartment, stabbed a dozen times, his door locked from the inside. Without a shred of doubt, one of his fellow passengers is 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.

"What more . . . can a mystery addict desire?"—New York Times

        "A brilliantly ingenious story." — Dorothy L. Sayers, Daily Herald (UK)

        "It's tempting to say that Agatha Christie is a genius and let it go at that, but the world's had plenty of geniuses. Agatha Christie is something special." — Lawrence Block, New York Times bestselling author

        "[Moves] smoothly and entertainingly to its surprise conclusion." — Chicago Daily Tribune

        "Nothing short of swell. [Christie] is probably the best suspicion scatterer and diverter in the business." — New York Herald Tribune

        "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 (London)

        "What more...can a mystery addict desire?" — New York Times

        "Agatha Christie's books are both wonderful crime novels and studies in contrast and duality, and I adore them still. Underestimate them at your peril." — Louise Penny, #1 New York Times-bestselling author of the Inspector Gamache novels

        "Reading a perfectly plotted Agatha Christie is like crunching into a perfect apple: that pure, crisp, absolute satisfaction." — Tana French, New York Times-bestselling author of the Dublin Murder Squad novels

        "Agatha Christie taught me many important lessons about the inner workings of the mystery novel before it ever occurred to me that I might one day be writing mysteries myself." — Sue Grafton, #1 New York Times-bestselling author of the Kinsey Millhone novels

        "Any mystery writer who wants to learn how to plot should spend a few days reading Agatha Christie. She'll show you everything you want to know." — Donna Leon, New York Times-bestselling author of the Commissario Brunetti novels

        "I always wanted to be Agatha Christie when I grew up. I still do." — J. A. Jance, New York Times-bestselling author of the Joanna Brady and J. P. Beaumont novels

        "Agatha Christie's indelibly etched characters have entertained millions across the years and a love of her work has brough together generations of readers—a singular achievement for any author and an inspiration to writers across the literary landscape." — Jacqueline Winspear, New York Times-bestselling author of the Maisie Dobbs novels
