Christie, Agatha, Murder on the Orient Express: Facsimile Edition

A stunning facsimile edition of the original Agatha Christie hardcover—the legendary author’s most famous book, and Hercule Poirot’s most famous case.

Just after midnight, a snowdrift stopped the Orient Express in its tracks. The luxurious train was surprisingly full for the time of the year. But by the morning there was one passenger fewer. An American lay dead in his compartment, stabbed a dozen times, his door locked from the inside.

With tension mounting, detective Hercule Poirot comes up with not one, but two solutions to the crime.

Reproducing the original typesetting and format of the first edition from the Christie family’s archive,Murder on the Orient Express Facsimile Editionalso features the first hardcover edition’s actual cover art, which has been painstakingly restored to its original beauty.
