The Blue Train - Agatha Christie

Description - Back Cover
 When the luxurious Blue Train arrives at Nice, a guard attempts to wake serene Ruth Kettering from her slumbers. But she will never wake again—for a heavy blow has killed her, disfiguring her features almost beyond recognition. What is more, her precious rubies are missing.
The prime suspect is Ruth’s estranged husband, Derek. Yet Hercule Poirot is not convinced, so he stages an eerie reenactment of the journey, complete with the murderer on board. . . .

My Thoughts:
I really enjoyed reading this book.  I was so into this book I lost track of time while reading it.  I couldn't figure out how the killer got into the room.  But of course Poirot figures it out for you.   Ruth is unhappily married to British aristocrat Derek Kettering.  Derek Kettering is a character about who I couldn't figure out if he killed his wife until the very last chapter.  But enough, or I'll be telling who the killer is.  You'll have to read the book to find out who killed Ruth.
