Now a major new film adaptation, directed by Kenneth Brannagh with a star-studded cast

Agatha Christie's most famous murder mystery, reissued with a striking new cover with special finishes. 

“The murderer is with us—on the train now . . .”

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.

"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

The reigning queen of crime, Agatha Christie’s life took her from her home in the Devon countryside to Cairo, Australia and, of course, a journey on the Orient Express. She created two of the most famous detectives in literature, the moustached Belgian super-sleuth Hercule Poirot and the deceptively genteel village investigator Miss Marple, as well as creating the longest running stage play The Mousetrap.
