** ''Literature/MurderOnTheOrientExpress'', [[spoiler:Mrs. Hubbard]] is actually [[spoiler: Linda Arden, Daisy Armstrong's grandmother]]. This is, to the best of my recollection, not foreshadowed in any way, except to know that the latter is an extremely gifted actress.
** ''One, Two, Buckle My Shoe'', [[spoiler: Mabelle Sainsbury Seale is actually Mrs. Albert Chapman, who herself is ''really'' Alistair Blunt's first wife, Gerda, who's been posing as his cousin!]] This is convoluted even by Christie standards.
