On a winter’s evening in 1934, a snowdrift stops the luxurious Orient Express, literally in its tracks. By morning, it is one passenger less; an American tycoon lies dead in his compartment, stabbed, his door locked from the inside. With a long list of suspects, detective Hercule Poirot must identify the murderer before they strike again! “Christie is not the bestselling novelist in history for nothing, and Ludwig’s adaptation strikes the perfect balance of the cerebral and the comic. Get on board – it’s a great ride!” – Houstonian Magazine
