Waterstones Says

Harrison Beck undertakes another locomotive mystery in the fourth instalment of Leonard and Sedgman’s thrilling Adventures on Trains series, as a cursed family of railway tycoons high in the German mountains makes for a sinister supernatural mystery.

Embark on a thrilling fourth adventure in the bestselling, prize-winning Adventures on Trains series from M. G. Leonard and Sam Sedgman, as Harrison Beck investigates an ancient family curse high in the German mountains. Illustrated in black-and-white throughout by Elisa Paganelli.

A mysterious letter from an old friend asks Hal and Uncle Nat to help investigate a spooky supernatural mystery. Legend has it the Kratzensteins, a family of rich and powerful railway tycoons, are cursed, but there is no such thing as a curse, is there . . .?

Hal and Nat take the night train to Berlin and go undercover. From a creaking old house at the foot of the Harz mountains, they take the Kratzenstein family's funeral train to the peak of the Brocken Mountain. Can Hal uncover the secrets of the Brocken railway and the family curse before disaster strikes?

MEDIA REVIEWS

A slick and super-satisfying sequel with kidnap, card tricks and the coolest train carriage ever! - Ross Montgomery, author of Perijee and Me

Wildly funny, with hairpin plot bends and inventive characters, this series is firmly on track to become a bestseller. - Daily Mail

I have a station announcement: their collaboration is a chuffing triumph. Fans of Agatha Christie, or, more recently, Robin Stevens and Katherine Woodfine, should adore this mystery which makes a steam trail all of its own. - The Times Children's Book of the Week

With the Highland Falcon Thief, M. G. Leonard and Sam Sedgman bring the classic mystery on a train bang up to date with a carriage-load of wit and suspense - Ross Welford, author of Time Travelling with a Hamster on The Highland Falcon Thief

A brilliant adventure, packed with blackmail, red herrings and silver superliners! - Mitch Johnson

With a cast of delightfully dubious characters who are all potential suspects, Kidnap on the California Comet will keep readers guessing and reading on to enjoy the developing friendships and follow the red herrings across the USA, to a satisfying conclusion. There are plenty of notes at the back for train fans, and the book may therefore appeal especially to vehicle-obsessed children who are looking for a longer book with a clear plot to follow - BookTrust
