APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Hercule Poirot—Agatha Christie’s eccentric and curiously mustached detective—appeared in countless stories throughout the mystery mastermind’s career as the bestselling novelist of all time. But stuck in a Yugoslavian snow drift aboard the prestigious Orient Express, Poirot assumes his most famous investigation: the death of a wealthy American passenger named Samuel Ratchett. “The murderer is with us—on the train now,” says Poirot, who probes a marvelous cast of suspects and pieces together a nebulous web of evidence and events. First published in 1934, Christie’s classic murder mystery is a dazzling blueprint for whodunits throughout the decades…and up to today.
