Review: The Woman on the Orient Express

The Woman on the Orient Express The Woman on the Orient Express by Lindsay Jayne Ashford
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The secret lives of three women converge on a train trip across the world, from England to the deserts of the Middle East. Agatha Christie is trying to go incognito to Baghdad to get some time away after her divorce. Katherine is going back to an archeological dig where she works, but she hides a few secrets of her own. Nancy, hiding what may be the biggest secret of all three, just wants to make it to Baghdad to stay with family for awhile. What ensues is an adventure for all three, where secrets and lies are exposed, but brings them all together as well.

This is a fictionalized account of Agatha Christie's trip on the Orient Express, but since I am not familiar with the details of her biography or unfortunately any of her work, this was simply presented as a good story. Those who do know more details of Christie's life and work will also enjoy this story as well, because it is well told.
