About this deal

As previously stated, with 4 books published and at least 2 more given release dates, originality is key to the series' longevity. The bestselling, prize-winning Adventures on Trains series embarks on a thrilling fourth adventure as Harrison Beck investigates an ancient family curse high in the German mountains in Danger at Dead Man's Pass. Reminiscent of The Hound of the Baskervilles, this time Hal and Uncle Nat go undercover in the German mountains to investigate a deadly curse. With danger and warring motives at every junction, will Hal and Uncle Nat be able to crack the case before their time in Germany is up?

com to record that I am either a Student, Parent, Nursery Teacher, Primary Teacher, Secondary Teacher, Literacy Coordinator, Librarian, Bookseller, Publisher or Other so that I can receive worldbookday. Na twee boeken die zich verder weg afspeelden, blijft Dodemansrit weer wat dichter bij huis en rijden we door naar de top van de Brockenbahn in de Duitse Harz, een hele streek die ik nog graag wil bezoeken en waar dan ook zeker een rit met een van de bekendste stoomtreinritten ter wereld nog op mijn lijstje staat. Danger at Dead Man’s Pass can be read as a stand-alone novel, or enjoyed as part of the Adventures on Trains series.This is a story about deception, about detective work, the importance of learning other languages, about friendship and family, about secrets and codes, and most importantly about trains. Karakters worden op slimme wijze geïntroduceerd en er wordt met net genoeg informatie verwezen naar avonturen uit het verleden zodat het verhaal ook goed te volgen is zonder de vorige delen te hebben gelezen. The relationship between Hal and his Uncle also continues to develop and we find that Uncle Nat may not be all that he appears to be…. This time, Hal and Uncle Nat find themselves investigating an ancient family curse, a missing will, and a witch who is said to prowl the railway line at Dead Man's Pass.

Hal and his Uncle Nat were as wonderful as ever, with some new characters that added depth and intrigue to the story, as well as several atmospheric locations that really added to the experience. And the people were not Americans pretending to be European (some authors have trouble writing the difference). There's four new kids to keep up with, some with more personality than others, and I'm still not sure who Ozan is.As ever there are great titbits of information on trains that add to the story as do the brilliant illustrations by Elisa Paganelli. This time, Nat and Hal are off through Europe to Berlin, to investigate on behalf of an old friend of Nat’s.
