About the Author:

Agatha Christie was born in 1890. During the World War I she worked as a hospital dispenser, where she gleaned the working knowledge of various poisons. Her first novel was The Mysterious Affair at Styles, published in 1920, followed over the next six years by four more detective novels and a short story collection. However, it was not until the publication of The Murder of Roger Ackroyd that Agatha Christie’s reputation was firmly established. In 1930 the sharp-witted spinster sleuth Miss Marple made her first appearance in Murder at the Vicarage. In all, Agatha Christie published 80 crime novels and short story collections. As her play The Mousetrap (the longest-running play in the history of the theater) testifies, Agatha Christie’s detective stories are likely to appeal for a long time to come. Agatha Christie was awarded a CBE in 1956 and was made a Dame of the British Empire in 1971. She died in 1976.

From AudioFile:

Katherine Grey's life changes dramatically after she inherits a large sum of money. A trip to the Riviera on the Blue Train is her first adventure. When she meets Hercule Poirot, she's thrown into the investigation of a wealthy American's murder. This successful dramatization by BBC Radio is enhanced by appropriate sound effects, such as train whistles, gun shots and clinking glasses. The American, British and French accents are well done and make it easy to identify the main characters. This presentation will appeal to audio listeners as well as theater fans who will feel like they have a front-row seat. C.W. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
