The passengers in the sleeping car of the Rome Express were just woken and informed that they will reach Paris soon, and a bustle ensues.

Mostly good

(4 stars)

A murdered man is found on a train, and the chief suspect is a lady of status. The French police have to do a bit of work to figure out whodunnit in this light mystery. I found that the storyline focused more on the human aspects of the characters rather than the mystery. It was predictable as well, but it was still a good listen. The readers were mostly good, with a few rough chapters at the start. Overall a good story.

(0.5 stars)

Tried the first two chapters and then gave up. Couldn't understand the readers. The summary sounded very interesting so was quite disappointed

good mystery

(4 stars)

I enjoyed this mystery and was pretty well read for the most part. Thanks to all the readers. Enjoy!
