Hercule Poirot receives a letter warning that someone will be killed in Andover and is signed by the mysterious "A.B.C.". The police believe it is a hoax, but the letter was found to be true, as Mrs. Ascher was found murdered, with no clues but an A.B.C railroad guide. Poirot receives more letters which are followed my more murders, all with railroad guides left behind. Poirot, the police, and the friends and family members of the victims work together to reveal and find the killer before he kills more innocent lives.

I enjoyed how the story started right with Hastings and Poirot, unlike in Murder in Mesopotamia when Poirot didn't enter the story till at least a quarter of the book was through. It had quite a different feel than most of the other Poirot mysteries, because there were several crimes committed and they were so randomly that took a while to find any real possible suspects. Till the last few chapters, Christie had me going that it was a madman who was the murderer, but she threw the twist in the end which I wasn't really expecting.
