«Murder on the Orient Express»

 By Fotini Balkamou


Christmas is coming. So it’s a good opportunity to read a nice literary book during the Christmas holidays.


Personally, I prefer mystery books and there is nothing better than reading a book by the famous English author, Agatha Christie. My favourite book is «Murder on the Orient Express». Of course, most of you probably know it. But for those who do not know this book, here is a short presentation of its plot.


The story takes place in the 1940s. The famous Belgian detective, Hercule Poirot boarded the Orient Express train. On a dark and cold night, a horrible murder is committed inside the train. Thus, Poirot is called upon to investigate the case and find the culprit. In this attempt, he discovers the connection of the victim with a well-known case of abduction of a little girl in America two years ago. The suspects and the questions are many. Will the detective manage to find the killer?


A winter mystery story that will fascinate you!
