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.
