“I like to see an angry Englishman," said Poirot. "They are very amusing. The more emotional they feel the less command they have of language.”
Poirot, Christie’s iconic Belgian sleuth, takes centre stage in this novel. The titular murder takes place when an American businessman is murdered overnight on the train, and the corridor of passengers from all walks of life become suspects. Poirot has to contend with a number of suspects who are reluctant to talk to him to try to work out who pulled off this heinous deed.
We promise no spoilers, but fans of Christie will know that this book pulls one of her wildest punches. The ending plot twist will leave any reader reeling, unless you’re smart enough to have already guessed the truth!
“The impossible could not have happened, therefore the impossible must be possible in spite of appearances.”
There is also a gripping 2017 film adaptation directed by and starring Kenneth Branagh. The starry cast and beautiful set pieces means this film really captures the essence of Christie's classic mystery. Anyone can feel like an amateur detective when kitted out with our handbag!
