MURDER-MYSTERY. Adapted from the short story by Agatha Christie. A wealthy American steel magnate hires famed detective Hercule Poirot to hunt down the killer of his daughter, Flossie, who was murdered on a train while on her way to a ball in Plymouth. A passenger finds Flossie’s body stuffed underneath a seat in a train compartment, and police discover Flossie’s jewels have been stolen. The only suspect is a mysterious gentleman who had been spotted earlier in Flossie’s train compartment by her maid. While Inspector Japp scours the train line for clues, Poirot stays put and focuses on the psychology of the crime. There are plenty of twists and turns and even a red herring in this classic Christie mystery, which served as the basis for Christie’s novel, "The Mystery of the Blue Train."
