So does Katherine Grey, who is having her first winter out of England, after recently receiving a relatively large inheritance. The famous ruby, “Heart of Fire”, which had recently been given to Ruth by her father, is discovered to be missing. Ruth’s father, the American millionaire Rufus Van Aldin, and his secretary, Major Knighton, convince Poirot to take on the case. Ruth’s maid, Ada Mason, says she saw a man in Ruth’s compartment but could not see who he was. The police suspect that Ruth’s lover, the Comte de la Roche, killed her and stole the rubies, but Poirot does not think he is guilty. He is suspicious of Ruth’s husband, Derek Kettering, who was on the same train but claims not to have seen Ruth. Katherine says she saw Derek enter Ruth’s compartment.

Further suspicion is thrown on Derek when a cigarette case with the letter “K” is found there. Poirot investigates and finds out that the murder and the jewel theft might not be connected, as the famous jewel thief The Marquis is connected to the crime. Eventually, the dancer Mireille, who was on the train with Derek, tells Poirot she saw Derek leave Ruth’s compartment around the time the murder would have taken place. Everyone is convinced the case is solved, but Poirot is not sure. He does more investigating and learns more information, talking to his friends and to Katherine, eventually coming to the truth.
