This is one of Christie's best mysteries: an exotic locale, a varied cast of characters who are snowed in together, and a murder. Poirot can only rely on his "little grey cells" to deduce who murdered the dead man and how and why.

Hercule Poirot is back, and this time he's aboard the exotic Orient Express, a passenger train traveling between India and Europe. A murder is committed, but then the train is delayed due to a snow drift, and suddenly the murderer cannot easily escape. Poirot is in his element as he rounds up an eccentric cast of suspects to question.

This novel presents itself more like a word puzzle mystery game - the clues and evidence are presented in a logical matter and summed up accordingly throughout the story. Everything is pretty much laid out on the table for the reader to draw their own conclusions. I couldn't guess whodunit, but maybe you can. Personally, the real enjoyment is watching Poirot stumble upon that 'Aha!' moment and then seeing how he cleverly chooses to reveal his thinking to us.
