Murder on the Orient Express

Murder on the Orient Express

by Agatha Christie

Lies and Deceit Quotes

How we cite our quotes:

Quote #10

"And then, Messieurs, I saw light. They were all in it. For so many people connected with the Armstrong case to be traveling by the same train by a coincidence was not only unlikely, it was impossible. It must be not chance, but design." (3.9.58)

Again, this is another incredibly meta moment. We realize that the plot of the novel is also a plot by the characters.
