Publisher's Summary

An international cast of suspects, all passengers on the crowded train, are speeding through the snowy European landscape when a bizarre and terrible murder brings them to an abrupt halt. One of their glittering number lies dead in his cabin, stabbed a mysterious twelve times. There is no lack of clues for Poirot - but which clue is real and which is a clever plant?
Poirot realises that this time he is dealing with a murderer of enormous cunning and that in a case frought with fear and inconstencies only one thing is certain - the murderer is still aboard the train waiting to strike again...
John Moffatt stars as the great Belgian detective in a BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation.

Top performance of a classic story

This story has some unique features among Agatha Christie's books. There's no second murder to help narrow down the suspects, and Poirot must solve the crime in a matter of hours. Even if you've read the story before, this dramatisation is still worth listening to. The sound effects may not be quite movie standard, but they're convincing none the less. The acting is good, and the script writer left the original story alone. And for those of us who can't see, we can follow the story as well as our sighted friends staring at the radio. A pleasant two hours listening.

Fantastic attention to detail!

Fantastic storyline with the drama paying exceptional attention to detail. I listened to first this and then the original book and even though the length is quite different not a single detail is unmentioned. Definitely worth listening to even if you have read the book.

Very engaging:-) excellent voices! feeling as if one was in the train observing Poirot solving the case. Pity it's so short.
