Summary

A short story from British Library Crime Classic The Christmas Card Crime and Other Stories

A locked-room mystery that will delight Agatha Christie fans. 

Dramatist Trevor Lowe and his friend Detective Inspector Shadgold board the Western Express to spend Christmas in the little Cornish village of St Merryan. Heavy snowfall forces their journey to an abrupt halt and, after seeking refuge in a local pub, one of their fellow passengers is found stabbed to death, clutching half a Christmas card. 

Is the murderer in their midst?
