Better known by its British title 'MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS', this is one of Agatha Christie's most prolific novels. Hercule Poirot is challenged by a most diabolic murder while traveling to London from Syria. There are thirteen suspects, each with a good alibi. As always, Poirot makes much use of "the little grey cells", and eventually names the murderer.

It has been many years since I read this most unusual mystery. Though I remembered the ending, it was a thrill going back through the labyrinth of clues and revelations that make Christie's books stand out from all others.
