Robbery and brutal murder aboard a luxury transport ensnares Poirot in The Mystery of the Blue Train.

When the luxurious Blue Train arrives at Nice in France, a guard attempts to wake serene Ruth Kettering from her slumbers. But she will never wake again, for a heavy blow has killed her, disfiguring her features almost beyond recognition. What is more, her precious rubies are missing.

The prime suspect is Ruth’s estranged husband, Derek. Yet Hercule Poirot is not convinced, so he stages an eerie reenactment of the journey, complete with the murderer on board.

Ruth Kettering is found murdered aboard a luxury train, and it is soon discovered that her rubies are also missing. The prime suspect is her husband, but Hercule is not convinced, so he stages a reenactment of the journey, complete with the murderer on board.

    Times Literary Supplement (London)

    Robert Barnard, English crime writer and critic
