“Our helicopter crashes: senior experts involved”

Posted by Encota on 5 Jan 2018

So it’s all about HERCULE POIROT and the ORIENT EXPRESS.

Leading to a random / spurious Anagram-based headline:

 “Our helicopter crashes: senior experts involved”

OURHELICOPTER* and SENIOREXPERTS*.  I suspect you can do better!

Thanks first of all to Twin for an excellently-constructed puzzle.  It included the 12 suspects from AGATHA CHRISTIE’s Murder On The Orient Express (first names) hidden within extra words in 12 clues, plus a neat diagonal with both HERCULE POIROT and ORIENT EXPRESS as possible fitting letters, all creating real words or abbreviations.  The encircled letters spell out LITTLE GREY CELLS, those of Poirot.

An enjoyable solve – thanks Twin!
