Publisher's Summary

Agatha Christie's most famous murder mystery, read by the inimitable Dan Stevens.
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.

What the Critics Say

"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)
"A brilliantly ingenious story." (Dorothy L. Sayers, Daily Herald)
"Ingenuity at its height… the idea is utterly novel, the setting a model of realism, and the characters a versatile, attractive crew." (Woman's Journal)
"A piece of classic workmanship... exquisite and wholly satisfying." (News Chronicle)

Great fun as my first Agatha Christie read

My very first Agatha Christie. Didn't know what to expect! Definitely not your standard "who done it". Great story and presentation of the characters.

Voice acting by Dan Stevens was great! For an Englishman he spent a lot of time doing French and American accents. Really enjoyed it :)
