Summary

Adventures on Trains is a major mystery series from the prize-winning M. G. Leonard and Sam Sedgman. First stop, The Highland Falcon Thief, a breathless train journey full of deceptions, puzzles and clues to solve.

Harrison Beck is reluctantly joining his travel-writer Uncle Nate for the last journey of the royal train, The Highland Falcon. But as the train makes its way to Scotland, a priceless brooch goes missing, and things are suddenly a lot more interesting. As suspicions and accusations run high among the passengers, Harrison begins to investigate and uncovers a few surprises along the way. Can he solve the mystery of the jewel thief and catch the culprit before they reach the end of the line?

Hear whispers in the dining car, find notes in the library, and unknown passengers among the luggage as you help Harrison to solve the mystery aboard one of the world's grandest trains.

Can't wait for the next one!

I thought it was the best book I ever listened to in my whole life and I cant wait for there to be another one to come out and it was such a good cliff hanger at the end too. The characters were funny and I enjoyed the adventure. I enjoyed the route of the train journey, through places that I knew. Oliver aged 10

A mystery adventure onboard a train!

I brought this as a possible class read for Year 5. The story was fast paced, kept you guessing as you read it and had some super illustrations. A little like a younger Murder on the Orient Express with theft instead of robbery. I would highly recommend this for ages 8+ As a class text this has a lot of potential as for cross curricular lessons, or just a read for pleasure.
