About The Book
A facsimile first edition hardback of Poirot's most famous book, published to mark the 80th anniversary of his first appearance.
Just after midnight, a snowdrift stopped the Orient Express in its tracks. The luxurious train was surprisingly full for the time of the year. But by the morning there was one passenger fewer. An American lay dead in his compartment, stabbed a dozen times, his door locked from the inside.
With tension mounting, detective Hercule Poirot comes up with not one, but two solutions to the crime.
To mark the 80th anniversary of Hercule Poirot's first appearance, and to celebrate his renewed fortunes as a primetime television star, this launch title in a collection of facsimile first editions is the perfect way to experience Agatha Christie. Reproducing the original typesetting and format of the first edition from the Christie family's own archive, this book sports the original cover which has been painstakingly restored to its original glory.

Agatha Christie, who was also called the queen of crime was skilled perfectly in writing crime. She always presents the murder mystery in such a way that everyone gets keen in resolving the mystery himself by reading the novel without a break. Another book of Hercule’s series that uncovers the truth of murders in the train. A train from Istanbul to Paris--the Orient Express--is stopped for night by a snow drift in the Balkans. By the morning, one passenger is less in count, later they find him dead in his compartment. The victim is stabbed 12 times. Then Hercule Poirot is called to solve the murder mystery. The suspense is brilliantly created. The interrogation of the fellow passengers and the investigations are the most interesting part of the novel. Well written story and well characterized. I just love the crime queen for the masterpiece she wrote. Superb language, superb mystery, superb investigations, superb story and everything SUPERB.
