For the forty-fifth book in the challenge, I read Murder on the Orient Express (Poirot #10) by Agatha Christie.
What a classic! This book has always gotten more attention than her other books, and for good reason. This isn’t the first time the victim has been a real jerk, but Poirot always found himself able to bring clarity and justice to a tangled web of tragedy and walk away knowing he has done what was right. This time, he finds himself questioning his fundamental tenets of his belief about what justice is, and where he must fall on what is right.
Brilliant story, excellent presentation, 5 out of 5 stars.
