Murder on the Orient Express
by Agatha Christie [Compact Disc Christie]
Hercule Poirot is traveling aboard the Orient Express; his car is full
of a wide variety of people. One night the the train comes to a stop due
to the tracks being blocked with snow. That night one of the passengers
is murdered. The following day Poirot investigates to find that the
murdered man is in fact guilty of kidnapping in the United States.
Poirot then begins to assemble clues as to who and why. Most of the book
consists of interviewing the passengers, searching the train carriage,
and Poirot talking the details over with his friend – owner of the train
company. I listened to the audio book version of this novel and the
narrator did a nice job putting on accents and different voices for the
cast of characters. After finishing it I feel I could read it over again
knowing how it turns out and looking for clues I missed the first time
around. I'd recommend this those who enjoy cozy mysteries or intricate
plots. -- recommended by Kristen A. - Gere Branch Library [Aside from her other novels, readers who enjoy her work may also
