I just got word that school is starting in four weeks Finally a semblance of normalcy and a return to reading some heavier literary fiction and nonfiction Part of me is thrilled The other part has gotten used to the convenience and relaxation of having the kids home and the propensity of turning to comfort reads to help me through these times When I look back at 2020 it will well be known as the year of comfort reading One author who I have turned to as much as any this summer is Agatha Christie the ueen of Crime Where I live it does not get dark in the summer until nearly ten at night conducive to long hours of reading mysteries lending themselves to this schedule being fast paced whodunits Mystery of the Blue Train is the fifth Christie mystery I have read this year the fourth featuring Hercule Poirot our favorite mustachioed Belgian detective Mystery of the Blue Train is Christie s sixth case featuring Hercule Poirot and has all the elements of the later cases that made the sleuth world famous It was written in 1928 and already Christie had the presence of mind to feature Poirot traveling to a holiday via train where a murder happened to find him Poirot is already retired and alludes to the cases of his past that gained him notoriety Even though Christie does not have the sleuth use his catch phrase little grey cells Poirot is willing to assist the local police and notes that he never forgets and is all knowing All local police are in awe of his presence and happy to have his assistance on a case Christie thinking this early in her career to omit a key clue until the end that only Poirot knows She realized the key to writing a whodunit is to key readers on their toes thereby leaving out information so that readers would have to read the entire case to find out the guilty party Poirot knows though he always knows and crooks know this as well as the police do In this installment of Poirot millionaire heiress Ruth Van Aldin Kettering has been urged to divorce her husband by her father Ruth is in every regard her father s daughter and dutifully obeys him and giddily accepts his gift of an expensive ruby as a token of affection Little does her father know that Ruth has planned to rendezvous with her longtime love el Comte de la Roche on the French Riviera She would escape England on the rich man s Blue Train and is urged by her father to keep the rubies in his bank In this Ruth is not her father s daughter as she displays her wealth bringing the rubies with her On the first night of the voyage Ruth is found murdered with the suspects being either el Comte or her bitter husband Derek Kettering Poirot just happens to be on the same train and even though he is also traveling to the Riviera on a holiday he is happy to take the case He notes that if a doctor happened to be on a stroll and sees a person bleeding of course he would help Poirot feels the same about murder cases It would be on his conscience if he did not take the case and the guilty suspect walked free This Poirot takes a working holiday In 1928 Christie wrote a number of cases on hiatus while reeling from the death of her mother She is on record as not be fond of the books she wrote during this period but they went a long way toward the development of Poirot s characters and also giving birth to the idea of Miss Marple A key character in the Mystery of the Blue Train is Katherine Gray of St Mary Mead She had just come into money for the first time and was enticed to holiday with relatives in Nice Miss Gray also had the propensity to read detective stories and used her own grey cells to assist Poirot on this case Christie s idea for a female detective from St Mary Mead has been born with Miss Marple appearing later and using her female intuition to outsmart local detectives on a number of cases That she got her start on a case where Poirot gets assistance from a number of female characters is not lost on me Lenox Tamplin Zia Papopoulos and Katherine Grey may not be lead characters but they are all sharp women who are indicative of the 1920s and the beginning of the modern woman Poirot finds them all charming in their own way and each of them offers at least one incite that assists him in solving this case In the end Poirot uses the withheld information to solve a case that had baffled the police His acumen and wit are what make him a world famous detective and the descriptions of the Belgian s wardrobe and appearance in a seaside setting have be envisioning David Suchet as Poirot something Dame Christie did not have at the forefront of her mind when she wrote this case With normalcy returning I will still be revisiting both Poirot and Miss Marple many times in the coming month Their cases and locales continue to bring me comfort as I begin to navigate through heavier reads in the coming months One of these days I may even figure out whodunit 4 stars The Hunt for the Golden Mole year of comfort reading One author

Summary Ò PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ´ Agatha Christie Agatha Christie ´ 5 Download Download The Mystery of the Blue Train ë PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Bound for the Riviera detective Hercule Poirot has boarded Le Train Bleu an elegant leisurely means of travel free of intrigue Then he meets Ruth Kettering The Americ. In many ways this is a typical Hercule Poirot type of mystery a wealthy man s daughter is murdered on a train for a set of fabulous rubies and only a limited number of people could have gotten on or off the train at the right times to make them suspects or so one might think but who ever knows for sure with Agatha ChristieThis book was for me a cut above the typical Poirot mystery and I think it s mostly because I liked the main character so much Katherine Grey has beautiful gray eyes a Madonna like manner and a uiet sense of humor She has been a crotchety old woman s companion for 10 years and unexpectedly inherited her fortune and decides to travel The other old ladies in the English village are dubiousAnd so you ve come into a lot of money I hear Well well Take care of it And you re going up to London to have a good time Don t think you ll get married though my dear because you won t You re not the kind to attract the men And besides you re getting on How old are you nowThirty three Katherine told herWell remarked Miss Viner doubtfully that s not so very bad You ve lost your first freshness of courseI m afraid so said Katherine much entertainedBut you re a very nice girl said Miss Viner kindlyAs it turns out men are in fact attracted to Katherine except it s a problem when one of them could be the murderer And Katherine was during her travels coincidentally one of the last to see the murdered woman alive Luckily we ve got Poirot there to solve the problemThe book shows its 1928 roots a little with the social attitudes and a soup on of 1920s type spiritualism But it s an enjoyable read overall and yet another time that Dame Agatha had me fooled until the very end
