    Description

    The Mystery of the Blue Train is a novel from the mistress of mystery, Agatha Christie, starring the Belgian detective Hercule Poirot.

    Summary of the Book

    Murder on a train is nasty business. When an American heiress is found murdered on Le Train Bleu, the Blue Train, everyone on the train could have been suspects. The murderer must have thought that it was an easy escape, and profitable, since the heiress’ famous “Heart of Fire” ruby was missing. The only other person on the train who could have noticed something is Katherine Grey, who is spending her first winter away from England, having come into an inheritance of her own. Katherine met the now deceased Ruth Kettering on the journey, and discovered that she was leaving an unhappy marriage to go to her lover. Ruth’s maid says she noticed a man in Ruth’s compartment, but doesn’t know who he was. Suspicion falls on Ruth’s lover, the Comte de la Roche. However, there is one other man on the train that the murderer did not take into account before executing his plan. That one person’s presence itself may yet change the outcome of the investigation. That man is Hercule Poirot, the little Belgian detective with a proud moustache and a vendetta against murderers, and he is hot on the trail.

    Great Story, Poor paper quality.

    The story is very good. But this specific edition of book by HarperCollins for sale in India has very poor paper quality, thin brown paper. You don't need light at the back of the paper to see whats printed backside, it visible naturally as its that thin. Though I enjoyed the book story wise, sometimes when there was even a fint light in the back it became a great eye strain to read.

    Great read

    The book is a beautiful read.There is not doubt that she has a Shakespearen form of writing.Apart from this, "Murderer on the Orient Express" is a must read too.

    To flipkart, please update the birth details of Ahatha Christie to Sep 15, 1890.

    Just About Average!!

    This is one of those books which start very promisingly but falter towards the end.

    A very rude line, the above. However, that is exactly how I felt. This book was a strong reminder of "The Murder on Orient Express", which was a genius btw. Though the story starts explosively and moves at a reasonably fast pace, with all the characterization in the correct place; one would expect the climax to be more 'reasonable'.

    However, the climax, when it came, was kind of disappointing. Atleast to me...

    A bit different Christie Book !!!

    This book is a bit different from usual Christie affairs. First of all the setting of book is not London, it's mainly France (picturesque Nice). Secondly, first time I witnessed Christie believing in somewhat supernatural (it's not a spoiler, when you will read you will know what I meant). Generally characters are very tightly knit in Christie's book but this book has too many characters which i felt was a bit unnecessary.

    All in all it becomes my 4th favorite book of Christie so far - clim...
