The Mystery of the Blue Train
A BBC full-cast radio drama starring Maurice Denham as the great Belgian detective. A millionaire strikes a deal on the seedier side of Paris and gives to his heartsick daughter, Ruth Kettering, the Heart of Fire, one of the world s legendary jewels that once adorned the crown of the Tsars. Legend has it that the possession of the jewel leads to death, but despite her father s protests, attractive young Ruth decides to take it with her when she boards the luxurious Blue Train to the French Riviera, where she has planned a reunion with her former lover. But the legend proves true and a few days into the journey, Ruth is found dead and her priceless rubies stolen. The suspects line up: could the murderer be Derek, her weak and greedy husband; Ruth s former lover, the Comte de la Roche, who has a well-known weakness for ladies and expensive gems; or the beautiful but tempestuous dancer, Mirelle, Derek s scheming and expensive mistress? Only master sleuth Hercule Poirot can unravel the mystery and find the truth.Another perplexing mystery from the Queen of Crime, dramatized with a full cast including Anthony Smee and Judy Buxton."
