Publisher's Summary

When the luxurious Blue Train arrives at Nice, 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.

Outstanding Narration

Hugh Frasier's variety of accents bring an enthralling vibrancy to Christie's work. You feel as if you are surrounded by a cast, each telling what they saw (or what they want you to think they saw!) when in truth it is one talented man's voice. The story is full of lush descriptions, twists and turns in the Christie way, and the characters are easily recognizable- indeed whatever the audio equivalent of "leap off the page"- due to the individuality of voice the narrator applies to them.

Loved this mystery!

Big, big Agatha Christie fan here. Was browsing Audible for a good mystery to listen to during the long 12 hour drive back to upstate NY with 6 wee pups. I came across this mystery featuring Hercule Poirot---it was one I had never come across before. Hugh Fraser did a fantastic job reading the story! And the plot is perfect. I am partial to Christie's murders that take place on a train and was not disappointed! If you love Agatha Christie and Hercule Poirot you will love this audio book! Five star rating for everything!!!
