Mystery Of The Blue Train

Mystery Of The Blue Train "Poirot boards Le Train Bleu, bound for the French Riviera. So does Katherine Grey, who is having her first winter out of England, after having inherited a huge sum in a most romantic manner. While on board she meets Ruth Kettering, an American heiress bailing from a marriage to meet her lover. The next morning, though, Ruth is found dead in her compartment, a victim of strangulation. The theft of her priceless rubies, and rumors of a strange man loitering near her compartment, send Poirot on a quest to find her murderer.The novel's plot is based on the Poirot short story The Plymouth Express (much later collected in book form in the US in 1951 in The Under Dog and Other Stories and in the UK in 1974 in Poirot's Early Cases).This novel features the first description of the fictional village of St. Mary Mead, which would later be the home of Christie's detective Miss Marple. This, however, Ms. Anne Hart, in her 'biography' of Miss Marple, assures us, is not the same.[citation needed]. It also features the first appearance of the minor reoccurring character of Mr Goby who would later appear in both After the Funeral and Third Girl."
