Episode Summary

While travelling from Istanbul to London on the Orient Express, Poirot is approached by the shady American traveller Samuel Ratchett, who wants to hire him as a protector. Ratchett is soon found dead, with multiple stab wounds.

With the train trapped in a deep snow drift, the immediate evidence points to a killer who boarded and left the train, but Poirot finds a bewildering mass of clues and suspects, including a Russian princess, a German maid, a Hungarian diplomat and his wife, and a Swedish missionary. Ratchett proves to have been a mobster responsible for the kidnapping and murder of an American child. In the end, Poirot turns his back on the rule of law in favour of natural justice.
