Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie Part Two
We discuss Part 2, the 9th through 23rd chapters of Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie. As Poirot takes suspect after suspect in for interrogation, the complexities of the situation on the train grows seemingly insurmountable. With iron-clad alibis and no apparent motive other than a memory of the kidnapping of Daisy Armstrong, could this truly be a perfect crime? Herds takes a dive straight in the deep end to try solve it before time runs out. We also sit down and speak with From The Lighthouse producer Jimmy Van about Agatha Christie’s construction of classic crime fiction compared to her contemporaries, as well as the significance of “the game” in novels of the golden age.
