5.0 out of 5 stars A First Class Mystery in a First Class Railroad Coach, April 7, 2001
This review is from: Mystery of the Blue Train: BBC (BBC Radio Presents) (Audio Cassette)
Before "Murder on the Orient Express", there was the murder on the Blue Train, a luxury train which took the rich and famous across France to the Riviera. An American millionaire's daughter is garrotted, and he calls in Hercule Poirot to solve the murder. The cast of suspects is much smaller than in "Orient Express", but Poirot faces a "Herculean" task in sorting out the clues and bringing the killer to justice. An excellent plot and interesting characters make for great entertainment, but Christie once again gives her audience the idea that she really knows nothing about the mechanics of real-world murders. I can't discuss the details without giving away too much of the plot, but suffice it to say that the mechanics of ligature strangulation are such that the the killer would probably not have had to provide Poirot with the linchpin clue which helped solve the case. I audited the tape as I drove on a long business trip and enjoyed it tremendously. The reduced cast of suspects made the story much easier to keep up with than in most other Poirot mysteries I have audited.
