writing thesis

So, I need a thesis statement for a research paper for Murder on the Orient Express. (Sorry to keep posting a new question each time) But I've thought about the answers you guys have given me and I'm thinking something along the lines of: "In certain situations, murder can be considered a justified action." I'm probably trying too hard, and it probably isn't that good. Can you guys maybe try to help me turn that statement into more of a thesis?

  1. I think one of your problems is your insistence on using the word "murder" -- what words could you use in its place that would make the idea more comprehensible?

  2. Uhh....homicide? Would that be a good word?
    Thanks so much for your help. (:
