From AudioFile:

Greene classified this 1932 novel as one of his "entertainments" to distinguish it from his more serious works. Set on the Orient Express, traveling from Ostend to Constantinople, the story features a varied cast, including a wealthy Jewish merchant, a chorus girl, a burglar turned murderer, an exiled nationalist/revolutionary, and assorted other passengers. Michael Maloney manages the multinational voices, effectively conveying the wide range of emotions in this tale on intrigue and subterfuge. The reading keeps the listener focused on what will happen next. An excellent performance. R.E.K. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine

From Library Journal:

This novel spins the tale of an assortment of well-drawn characters interacting against a background of intrigue, murder, sex, and treachery as they ride the Orient Express from Ostend to Constantinople. The setting lends a sense of urgency and tension to the action, as well as a sort of glamour associated with the famous train. Described by Greene as an "entertainment," a term he coined to differentiate his melodramatic works from his more serious novels (he later abandoned the separation), this absorbing thriller will be a popular addition to any fiction collection. Reader Michael Maloney has an astonishing range of voices and emotions, and even the most desultory listener will be drawn into the action and the psyches of the various players.
