39 Asesinato en el Zarautz Express
In the novel Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie, the Belgian detective Hércules Poirot decides to travel on the Orient Express back to England. During the second night of the trip, the train is stopped due to a snowstorm in Yugoslavia and the next morning a murdered Ratchett appears. Poirot takes care of the investigation.
Poirot determines Ratchett‘s true identity and the possible reasons for his murder. A few years ago, a three-year-old girl named Daisy Armstrong was kidnapped by a man named Cassetti, who killed her despite receiving the rescue of the wealthy Armstrong family. The shock of the girl’s death devastated her family. Cassetti was arrested, but escaped the country after being acquitted. It was suspected that the murderer used his considerable fortune to manipulate the trial and Poirot concludes that Ratchett was actually Cassetti.
During his investigation, Poirot discovers that all the passengers in the car had a relationship with the Armstrong family, and therefore, a reason to kill Ratchett. Poirot proposes two possible solutions to the train security officer, letting him decide which one to present to the authorities: The first is that a stranger got on the train, murdered Ratchett and escaped. The second solution is that all the passengers in the car are involved in doing justice to which Ratchett escaped in the United States. The first option was chosen, when the reality coincided with the second.
Our investigations have discovered that Daisy‘s corpse was found on the train tracks, and therefore the avengers killed Cassetti in the Orient Express.
