Murder on the Orient Express

This week, Miss Camsell recommends ‘Murder on the Orient Express’ a quick paced, dramatic murder mystery classic soon to be released as a major blockbuster all star cast film.

Just after midnight, a snowdrift stops the Orient Express in its tracks. The luxurious train is surprisingly full for the time of the year, but by the morning it is one passenger fewer. An American tycoon lies dead in his compartment, stabbed a dozen times, his door locked from the inside.Isolated and with a killer in their midst, detective Hercule Poirot must identify the murderer – in case he or she decides to strike again.

It’s a great wintry and unpredictable read – a real page turner.
