Lucas here,
just finished a book report for my English class.
We had to write a report on a mystery novel. 
I chose MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS (mainly because I love trains).  It's written by Agatha Christie.  Mom says her books have been around a while.  
Wow- what a great story.  It was twisted all around.  I was completely surprised by the ending.

about the book:
"The murderer is with us - on the train now..."

Just after midnight, the famous Orient Express is stopped in its tracks by a snowdrift. By morning, the millionaire Samuel Ratchett lies dead in his compartment, stabbed a dozen times, his door locked from the inside. One of his fellow passengers must be the murderer.

Isolated by the storm and with a killer in their midst, detective Hercule Poirot must find the killer amongst a dozen of the dead man's enemies, before the murderer decides to strike again...

This Mr. P guy is a great sleuth.  He is able to figure things out with only a few clues.  If you haven't read this book, I recommend it.  If you have, do you agree with his (Mr. P's) decision at the end?
