The latest film adaptation of Murder on the Orient Express hit theaters earlier this month and has since resonated with audiences, raking in nearly $200 million in the last few weeks. The film, starring Kenneth Branagh, Johnny Depp, Judy Dench and more, is based on the 1934 novel of the same name by famed mystery writer Agatha Christie.
If you’ve seen the film and loved it, you’re in luck – there are over 40 novels featuring her famous detective Hercule Poirot that you can dive into (as well as 12 novels featuring another one of her beloved fictional detectives, Miss Marple).
