In Agatha Christie's classic, Three Act Tragedy, the normally unflappable Hercule Poirot faces his most baffling investigation: the seemingly motiveless murder of the thirteenth guest at dinner party, who choked to death on a cocktail containing not a trace of poison.

Sir Charles Cartwright should have known better than to allow thirteen guests to sit down for dinner. For at the end of the evening one of them is dead??choked by a cocktail that contained no trace of poison.

Predictable, says Hercule Poirot, the great detective. But entirely unpredictable is that he can find absolutely no motive for murder....… (més)

It’s a fun twist getting to see a side group of Poirot’s friends and acquaintances work the puzzle for awhile before he brings his little grey cells into the mix. It’s a solid mystery and not totally unsolvable by the reader, although I had forgotten the details since I read it last and had a good time attempting to work things out! ( )

I never can tell with Christie because I've read all her books at least once before. But this one was glaringly obvious from the beginning.

Another enjoyable afternoon spent reading an Agatha Christie novel. Instead of a nursery rhythm, this story features a three act play as Sir Charles Cartwright, Mr. Satterthwaite, Egg Lytton Fore, and Hercule Poirot reconstruct three deaths. Sir Charles Cartwright directs the play, since he is a well-known stage actor. During this staging of the events, Sir Charles and Egg fall in love, supposedly. Poirot jumps in and out of the scenes as a Greek chorus, explaining what transpires. Many red herrings and false assumptions, but a delightful journey to a tragic ending. ( )

Poirot gently uncrossed his knees, withdrew his gaze from the ceiling, and looked the young man full in the face. “My name is Hercule Poirot,” he said quietly, “and I am probably the greatest detective in the world.

Christie, Agatha. The Mystery of the Blue Train: Hercule Poirot Investigates (Hercule Poirot series Book 6) (p. 149). William Morrow Paperbacks. Kindle Edition.


Sir Charles Cartwright, a famous actor, is holding a dinner party at his country house when the local parson has a fit and dies. He suspects murder but everyone believes him to be letting his imagination run amok. And then weeks later, a second guest dies in the exact same manner.

Although Poirot does attend the dinner party, for much of the book he is absent, leaving the detection up to Sir Charles Cartwright, his friend Mr Satterthwaite (who apparently appears in Christie's Harley Quin series) and his young neighbour, Miss Lytton "Egg" Gore.

I really enjoyed this one. I loved the use of the three acts. The format was used very effectively to convey the story and it was rather an unique way to do so. I adored the way in which Charles took on and discarded his various roles, particularly when Mr Satterthwaite commented. I liked Mr Satterthwaite - he was amusing and observant (I'll have to make sure to pick up the Harley Quin books) - I would've liked to see more of him and Poirot working together - I'm sure it'd be very entertaining. Egg was a good egg (yeah I couldn't resist). I enjoyed her determination and manoeuvring to get her man.

The murderer was unexpected. I didn't see it coming. If I hadn't of read another book The Murder of Roger Ackroyd I'm sure it would've felt very original, but it kind of felt repetitive. That's not to say it wasn't good - it was and I enjoyed everything up until that very much - but it felt familiar in a way it probably shouldn't have. The motive for the murder was also pretty unexpected - I was pretty dumbfounded when Poirot explains that the first murder was a dress rehearsal. Oh the dramatics of actors. The motive though was kind of strange - I feel like he might have been better off killing the committed wife, then his friend. I mean one has one murder. The other has two.

Overall it was an enjoyable and well plotted mystery with intriguing characters and an unexpected culprit. 3.5 stars, rounded up to 4. ( )
