One of the few things you can rely on in this life is that a Hercule Poirot story is going to be engaging and the second is that Audio Partners will bring it to you superbly done and at a great price. Katherine Grey decides to see a little of the world when she inherits a tidy nest egg from an old employer. She opts for a trip to the French Riviera on the famous blue train. She gets more than she bargained for when the lady she befriends on the train turns up dead. Luckily for her, the famous Belgian is on board, and, as she helps Poirot unearth clues, she stumbles on romance and adventure in this diverting tale from a time gone by. John Moffatt expertly personifies the moneyed classes with their belief that they’re above such nasty things as murder. He carries off with aplomb the many characters’ emotional ups and downs and is especially good with the charming bravado of the upper-crust playboy about to receive his comeuppance.
