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.

Dated but still, and always will be, ingenious Ah, yes. The world famous case of the “Murder on the Orient Express” (MotOE). It is so famous, even people who have never read Christie know who did it. I first read it 12 years ago even though someone had already revealed to me the identity of the murderer. I’ve never forgiven him. But I read it anyway to find out for myself how Agatha Christie constructed the story in order to fool her readers.

An absolutely classic!!! First Sentence: It was five o’clock on a winter’s morning in Syria.

The Ultimate Christie Puzzle If I had to select a single Christie novel to read again for the first time, this would be my choice; more than twenty years after my first encounter with the novel I can still recall my complete amazement. I strongly urge those who have not seen the film version to avoid it until you have experienced the sheer pleasure of being being tricked by the master trickster herself. For MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS, superlatives are not enough.
