This has to be one of my favorite Hercule Poirot novels, because this one was really complicated, and perhaps should have an award for use of most red herrings in a mystery novel (or at least in the ones I've spent many years reading). I can't really say anything about the plot so as not to give it away, but picture this: a man dies on the Orient Express, which has become stuck in the snow somewhere in Yugoslavia. His room is locked from the inside. Had it not been that Poirot was traveling on the same train, I swear, this would have been the ultimate perfect murder.

That's the most plot review I can supply, but I can recommend this to anyone who likes good British crime fiction, or to people who have read Agatha Christie but maybe not this one, or to those who want to be there when Poirot unravels a most ingenious crime. It may be a bit far fetched, but it's really really good! Highly recommended.
