"The whole point of a good detective story was that it must be somebody obvious but at the same time, for some reason, you would then find that it was not obvious, that he could not possibly have done it. Though really, of course, he had done it. " -- Agatha Christie

Just after midnight, the famous Orient Express is stopped in its tracks by a snowdrift.
