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 first book in the Coffeehouse Mystery series centers on Claire Cosi, a manager of The Village Blend and the case of her assistant, Annabelle Hart, a graceful dancer, who tripped over and lay unconscious on the floor due to a “misstep”.
The story is about a high school student Randy Kincaid who enters a chat room and meets other characters by their aliases. It is fast-paced, entertaining, and reflective of the youth during the early years of the Internet.
Superintendent Adam Dalgliesh discovered that there were different motives to murder Miss Bolam and almost all doctors and employees in that clinic were suspected.
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.
It centers on Claire Cosi who manages The Village Blend, a coffeehouse in New York City. However, as the business booms, customers are dying. A good romantic mystery plus doses of knowledge on coffee and recipes.

Going Gone by Abraham Lopez is an anthology, a set of 12 different stories, which pictures a domino-effect destruction of a country like the United States and the American society as a whole.
2020 – A Simply Divine Mystery, written by Lee Raudonis, runs on the premise “What if the USA is governed by devout Christians and proposing a constitutional amendment making the New Testament as the basis of all civil laws?”
The novel meets my expectation of what a suspense thriller should be. The author was able to manage the multiple characters which provide the substantial sub-plots. Despite the multiple characters, I can still root for Akira as the main character.
The two characters met on a plane bound to Buenos Aires on Air USA Flight 2222 and sat beside each other. To beat boredom from a ten-hour flight, the two play a game. They pick seven random people on the plane, guess their names, professions, and anything about their lives.
