Auf ihrer Suche nach Antworten hat sie eine Verschwörung bis in höchste Regierungskreise entdeckt - und jagt nun deren Hintermänner. Mittlerweile ist die FBI-Agentin die meistgesuchte Person der USA. Doch ihre mächtigen Gegner haben nicht damit gerechnet, dass Jane bereit ist, alles zu riskieren, um die Wahrheit ans Licht zu bringen. »So gut Suizid war, dieses Buch ist noch besser.« Booklist »Ein vielschichtiger Thriller, bei dem die Charaktere den Ton angeben und der fast unmöglich wegzulegen ist.« Bookreporter

The famous Orient Express, thundering along on its three days' journey across Europe, came to a sudden stop in the night. Snowdrifts blocked the line at a desolate spot somewhere in the Balkans.

For in the night murder had been committed. Mr. Ratchett, an American millionaire, was found lying dead in his berth—stabbed. The untrodden snow around the train proved that the murderer was still on board. Poirot investigates. He lies back and thinks—with his little grey cells. . . . Murder on the Orient Express must rank as one of the most ingenious stories ever devised. The solution is brilliant. Once can but admire again the amazing resource of Agatha Christie.
