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…
