“Murder on the Orient Express” by Agatha Christie
Shortly after arriving in Istanbul, Hercule Poirot is urgently recalled to London. On the way back he takes a first-class class department on the Orient Express Train leaving the same night. In the train he is approached by the American Mr. Ratchett with a request for help, as he claims his life is in danger. Due to Poirot’s despise for Americans, he gives him the cold shoulder.
On the second night of the ride a cry coming from Ratchett’s compartment disturbes Poirot’s sleep. On the next morning an old friend of his and director of the company informs him that Ratchett has been infact killed, and he asks him to take the case. Piorot agrees and soon discovers that Ratchett is not who he claimed to be, and that his true identity is connected to a ruthless case of abduction and extortion back in the US. With this revelation the list of suspects gets bigger as all the passengers in Ratchett’s compartment are one way or another connected to the abduction and have their motives to seek his death.
