About this deal

The brilliant writing partnership of Sam Sedgman and MG Leonard did not disappoint, with a mystery to solve before the journey started. It also feels different because Hal and Nat go in knowing there's a mystery to solve, rather than stumbling across it.

With a whole host of new and exciting characters, an incredible setting and plenty of twists and turns, I cannot recommend this enough. Dl4 uit een reeks maar prima los te lezen: Treindetective Harrison Beck (Hal) heeft geen tijd om rustig zijn paasvakantie te vieren, want samen met zijn oom Nat is hij uitgenodigd om onderzoek te doen naar een mysterieuze dood.

This time however the adventure is planned as Nat has been invited to travel by train to help solve a mystery. Reminiscent of The Hound of the Baskervilles, this time Hal and Uncle Nat go undercover in the German mountains to investigate a deadly curse.

Embark on a thrilling fourth adventure in the bestselling, prize-winning Adventures on Trains series from M. So, I highly recommend this thrilling train journey that chuffs on with speed and much excitement that will get the adrenaline pumping so much, children will be so curious as to how it can all possibly end and then want some more! Hal and his Uncle Nat are back in their fourth adventure, Danger at Dead Man's Pass, and I couldn't have been more excited! There are still a lot of trains, but once Hal and Nat get to the castle, a lot of time is spent in it, moving around the old house and grounds. Of ja, toch wel, één klein dingetje: er werd naar de Franse taal met 'Français' verwezen - dat moet natuurlijk 'français' zijn.I have read each entry within hours of getting it, swept away by all the clues and red-herrings, and the general adventure of being aboard a train. Even though all of the books in the series have the same main characters and themes, they are all different enough to make them each an enjoyable read on their own. After completing artistic studies she made a career in advertising and has been the founder and owner of a small award winning design and trade business. Harrison and his Uncle Nat are now getting a tiny little bit famous because of their skills and have been invited to investigate a case in Germany.

She spent her early career in the music industry running Setanta Records, an independent record label, and managing bands, most notably The Divine Comedy. This book, more so than the previous ones, felt like the authors were changing up the formula slightly. I enjoyed the German (which Kindle provides a translation for), and the methods of travel like the Eurostar. The attention to detail over this is brilliant, because there is no difference in line strength in the drawings - it is done with cross-hatchings rather than the style of the earlier books which mimics different pencil strengths. Though, unlike previous books where I only worked it out at the last moment, this time I honed in on the culprit straight away.The old family home (more of a castle, with a train station inside) is big enough to hide many secrets. She has a first-class honours degree in English literature and an MA in Shakespeare Studies from Kings College London. 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.

Check out the blurb and my review as well as other praise from prominent and famous children's authors and press.A lifelong fan of puzzles, games, and detective fiction, he grew up with a railway at the bottom of his garden and has been mad about trains ever since. This rainy and gloomy afternoon, uncle Nat meets Hal after school with an urgent letter addressed to both of them, asking for help. I found this family extremely difficult to keep up with, and I'm still not quite sure who was related to who.
