Murder on the Orient Express

Narrated by Dan Stevens
Written by Agatha Christie

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.

The suspects are numerous and colorful — an Russian princess, an English colonel, an American matron and a Swedish missionary among others. The evidence suggests an assassin may have boarded the train during a stop in order to commit the murder, but ... is there an evil even closer at hand?
