Description
This Hercule Poirot mystery takes place on the elegant and plush Orient Express. The train is unusually crowded, traveling from Istanbul to Paris. Ratchett, a pushy, imperious millionaire, confronts Inspector Hercule Poirot and demands that the little Belgian take a case: protection. "I have an enemy," Ratchett says, and offers Poirot $20,000 if he will help him stay alive. Poirot declines because he can afford to, and because "I do not like your face, Monsieur." Later that night, as the train sits halted and snowbound, Ratchett is murdered - killed in a room locked from the inside. Poirot takes the case this time. It turns out that Ratchett, a gangster, a killer, kidnapper and child abuser, died of multiple stab wounds. Clearly, this clever, ruthless killer is still on board. Thirteen people on board knew the dead man. Each has a secret. Each had a reason to kill Ratchett, and each is a suspect in this murder. Can Poirot solve this baffling crime, find the person responsible, by the time the train reaches Paris?

Description
Just after midnight, a snowstorm stops the Orient Express dead in its tracks in the middle of Yugoslavia. The luxurious train is surprisingly full for this time of year. But by morning there is one passenger less. A "respectable American gentleman" lies dead in his compartment, stabbed a dozen times, his door locked from the inside. Hercule Poirot is also aboard, having arrived in the nick of time to claim a second-class compartment, and the most astounding case of his illustrious career.
