9780062424754: Murder on the Orient Express (Crime Club)

A stunning facsimile edition of the original Agatha Christie hardcover--the legendary author's most famous book, and Hercule Poirot's most famous case.

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.

Reproducing the original typesetting and format of the first edition from the Christie family's archive, Murder on the Orient Express Facsimile Edition also features the first hardcover edition's actual cover art, which has been painstakingly restored to its original beauty.

Product Description:

The famous Orient Express, thundering along on its three days' journey across Europe, came to a sudden stop in the night. Snowdrifts blocked the line at a desolate spot somewhere in the Balkans. Everything was deathly quiet. "Decidedly I suffer from the nerves," murmured Hercule Poirot, and fell asleep again. He awoke to find himself very much wanted. For in the night murder had been committed. Mr. Ratchett, an American millionaire, was found lying dead in his berth stabbed. The untrodden snow around the train proved that the murderer was still on board. Poirot investigates. He lies back and thinks with his little grey cells. . . .Murder on the Orient Express must rank as one of the most ingenious stories ever devised. The solution is brilliant. Once can but admire again the amazing resource of Agatha Christie."

"It's tempting to say that Agatha Christie is a genius and let it go at that, but the world's had plenty of geniuses. Agatha Christie is something special."--Lawrence Block, New York Times bestselling author
