About this deal

There's a scene at the end, for example, that is just deliciously tense nailbiting stuff and normally I'd be all 'yeah, whatever' but because it's written by Leonard and Sedgman, it is BRILLIANT. The answer to the mystery seemed pretty basic, although this time I was so confused trying to keep up with the characters I didn't have time to try and piece together clues to the mystery. Danger at Dead Man's Pass is the 4th-installment of my favorite Middle Grade series, Adventures on Trains.

A pretty good adventure story, and personally speaking, I find it to be one of the best in the series so far; while the last book greatly elevated the stakes, this one builds on that foundation by crafting an eerie and memorable atmosphere in the Kranzenstein family home. Don’t worry if you haven’t read the other books in the Adventures on Trains series – you can still enjoy Danger at Dead Man’s Pass as a book on it’s own! Before writing stories for children, he worked as a playwright, journalist, and digital producer, and founded a company making murder mystery treasure hunts for adventurous Londoners. Hal's interest in trains is a huge benefit to him here but he must disguise his detective abilities (which also means his art) to help crack the case. There's a family curse, a spooky mountain, a healthy amount of Faust, and it's just thick, solid adventure from that point on.Wildly funny, with hairpin plot bends and inventive characters, this series is firmly on track to become a bestseller.

I definitely recommend this series to anyone who enjoys a solid, heart-warming, engaging Children's Mystery. This adventure seems a little more serious to Hal, and it doesn’t help that Uncle Nat is behaving oddly too! More of the action takes place in the castle rather than on a train this time, and there are a lot of characters to remember, but a very satisfying mystery to unravel.While I don't normally read books for kids, I stumbled upon the first book in this series and it was surprisingly engaging. We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. Uncle Nat and Hal do travel by train to get to Germany, and then the Kratzenstein's do have a private funeral train that is used for Alexander's services, but besides that, you are at the Kratzenstein's gothic-feeling home.

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? Wat dat betreft, deed dit boek me een beetje denken aan een paar van de mysteries van De Vijf van de grote Enid Blyton.After ‘escalating’ from a jewel theft, to a kidnapping and then a murder in the first 3 books, I wasn’t sure where they could go next.
