"The murderer is with us–on the train now . . ."
Just after midnight, the famous Orient Express is stopped in its tracks by a snowdrift. By morning, the millionaire Samuel Edward Ratchett lies dead in his compartment, stabbed a dozen times, his door locked from the inside. One of his fellow passengers must be the murderer.

Isolated by the storm, detective Hercule Poirot must find the killer among a dozen of the dead man's enemies, before the murderer decides to strike again . . .  ( Goodreads synopsis )

Review: Murder on the orient express is not usually a book that I would go for, but I am always one for branching out and trying something new. I also wanted to read this before the movie came out. I was pleasantly surprised but this one. Constantly I was wondering who the killer is, coming up with different scenarios but none of them came close to the truth. This is a book that you will most definitely fly through and I highly recommend giving it a chance. Honestly there is not a lot I can tell you about this book without giving anything away but if you are in the mood for something with a bit of mystery then this ones for you. If you want a challenge to figure out who the murder is before the author tells you, then give this one a go.
