Publisher's Summary

Disillusioned journalist Tom Langdon must get from Washington to Los Angeles in time for Christmas. Forced to take the train across the country, because of a slight "misunderstanding" at airport security, he begins a journey of self-discovery and rude awakenings, mysterious goings-on and thrilling adventures, screwball escapades and holiday magic.

He has no idea that the locomotives pulling him across America will actually take him into the rugged terrain of his own heart, where he will rediscover people's essential goodness and someone very special he believed he had lost.

In equal parts hilarious, poignant, suspenseful, and thrilling, The Christmas Train is a delightful journey filled with memorable characters who have packed their bags with as much wisdom as mischief. Part detective story, part disaster movie, part romance, this is a brilliant, heart-warming holiday tale.

Listen to our insightful interview with narrattor Vincent Marzello on the Audible.co.uk Podcast.

    "Christmas every year"

    The Christmas Train is one of those novels that you have to get out every year. Its a mix of 32nd street, A Christmas Carol and all that is brilliant about David Baldacci. A must have in any Christmas stocking.
