SummaryAdd a Summary
In the early 1930s, a motley group of passengers board the "Orient Express" as it makes the three-day journey from Ostend, the ferry terminal on the French coast, to Constantinople (Istanbul). A female tabloid journalist recognizes a passenger as a wanted person for his involvement in a failed Communist revolt in Serbia five years earlier. As the train winds its way across Europe more passengers become embroiled in the game of cat and mouse between the journalist and the revolutionary.
Other: A principal character, Carleton Myatt, a businessman and Jew, is travelling from England to investigate his currant trading business interests in Turkey. A theme of the novel is the anti-Semitism Myatt faces from many people, on and off the train, as he travels through pre-World War II Europe.
