    Summary

    "The murderer is with us-on the train now . . ."

    Just after midnight and only halfway through the Scottish Highlands, the world-famous Hogwarts Express is stopped in its tracks by a snowdrift. By morning, the millionaire known as Tom Riddle lies dead in his compartment, stabbed a dozen times, his door locked from the inside. One of his fellow passengers must be the murderer.

    Isolated by the storm outside, Private Detective Hercule Poirot must find the killer among a dozen of the dead man's enemies, before the murderer decides to strike again. Will it be the graceful governess- Hermione Granger? The aggressive ministry official- Ron Weasley? Or one of the many other characters joined together by a simple holiday? In a world of magic and murder mystery, there will be lots of surprises to be found.

    A re-write of one of my favourite novels, Murder On The Orient Express by Agatha Christie, I hope you enjoy this just as much as I am enjoying writing it.

    See the end-notes of each chapter for the full list / reminder of what characters from Harry Potter are filling which roles from the novel.

    Summary

    On Halloween night in 1932, Chloe Beale meets a disguised stranger with whom she has an immediate, magnetic connection. She has a sneaking suspicion, based on the petite frame, delicate hands, and soft lips that it’s a young woman. According to the rules of 1930s New York high society, it should definitely confuse and potentially frighten Chloe. But Chloe has never played by the rules. She soon finds out several of those around her don’t either. In fact, they’re the ones who will make it possible for Chloe and her mystery crush to ultimately be together.

    Summary

    "Mr. Sam Winchester... what an interesting year you've had. Arson, murder, black market and mafia deals, secrecy, and lies. Do you mind telling the final cost?"

    Sam Winchester was a Junior Partner at one of the top law firms in 1930's New York City, and at a charity event required by his employers, he meets the best and worst thing to ever happen to him. Lucifer Milton had him from the very beginning, not only was he the start to a long string of lies, deceit, and crimes made by his older brother, but he had a personality that could fill the room, snark, loose morals, and enough scandalous jokes to go around. They both fall quick for each other, but with Sam's reputation and the threat of imprisonment on the line, the stakes are even higher. As the full picture develops, every twist and turn of the puzzle Michael Milton made brings more horror, loss, and the cost is more than they could ever imagine.
