On the elegant, plush Orient Express -- the famous train from Istanbul to Paris -- Ratchett, an imperious millionaire gangster, killer, kidnapper, and child abuser, confronts Inspector Hercule Poirot and offers the little Belgian $20,000 if he will help him stay alive. Poirot declines, adding, I do not like your face, Monsieur. Later that evening, as the train sits halted and snowbound, Ratchett is found dead inside a room locked from the inside, a victim of multiple stab wounds. Clearly, the clever, ruthless killer is still on board the train. Detective Poirot must find the killer of the much-hated millionaire among thirteen suspects, each with a compelling reason to kill Ratchett. Can Poirot solve this baffling crime by the time the train reaches Paris? Read by David Suchet.

display_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. This title was previously published as Murder in the Calais Coach.
