Murder on the Orient Express is an Agatha Christie 1934 novel featuring Hercule Poirot based on the Lindbergh kidnapping and Christie’s experiences on board the Orient Express.
Hercule Poirot received a letter from someone named Miss Emily Arundell from Market Basing. The letter was dated 17th of April but he received it on the 28th of June. Poirot already found it strange, and its content disturbing.
I found it unusual that Hercule Poirot appeared past the story’s midpoint. But then again, with Poirot investigating, everyone in the school becomes a suspect.
This is the third novel to feature Hercule Poirot as the lead detective. It was originally a fifty-four part series in the London Evening News in 1925 under the title, Who Killed Ackroyd?
The title itself is proper. All the innocents had to suffer an ordeal during those trying times. This is the first Christie novel I’ve read and I was amazed on how she revealed the murderer at the end.
And Then There Were None is a 2015 BBC One miniseries based on the original 1939 novel which was once featured on iFlix.
The story is about ten people of different professions and social status who received an unusual invitation from a certain millionaire named U.N. Owen. The invitation requires them to stay for a week in a private island called Indian Island.
