Adventures on Trains: Kidnap on the California Comet
Publisher: Pan Macmillan
Harrison Beck travels the world on trains with his journalist uncle, and wherever he goes, crime seems to follow. In this book’s adventure, Harrison is aboard the beautiful, iconic California Comet, with the aim of interviewing a battery billionaire. Before he knows it there has been a kidnapping: the billionaire’s hot-tempered daughter. Who is guilty and who should he trust?
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.
