About this deal

She now lives and works in UK as a freelance Illustrator and Creative Designer, accompanied by her beloved pets. The mysteries don't stop there, with such sensational intrigue at a creaky house, that has just the right amount of spookiness, with its private train line. 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. At first it was really confusing trying to get my head around all of the characters and how they were all connected and then after the 100 page mark the plot just got a little bit too ridiculous for me.

As in previous books, this one combined a thrilling story and a classic denouement at the end with lots of interesting facts as Uncle Nat and Hal travel across Europe. This time, Nat and Hal are off through Europe to Berlin, to investigate on behalf of an old friend of Nat’s. Harrison Beck undertakes another locomotive mystery in the fourth instalment of Leonard and Sedgman’s thrilling Adventures on Trains series, as a cursed family of railway tycoons high in the German mountains makes for a sinister supernatural mystery.

We were spoilt for choice in this book with sleeper trains, the Metro, personal steam engines on branch lines and even model trains.

Danger at Dead Man’s Pass can be read as a stand-alone novel, or enjoyed as part of the Adventures on Trains series. Wat dat betreft, deed dit boek me een beetje denken aan een paar van de mysteries van De Vijf van de grote Enid Blyton.

A mysterious letter from an old friend asks Hal and Uncle Nat to help investigate a spooky supernatural mystery. Elisa Paganelli was born in Italy and since childhood, hasn’t been able to resist the smell of paper and pencils. I haven't read middle grade since I was a child, so was very apprehensive going into this series, but as I am a huge mystery fan, and they came so highly recommended, I decided to give them a go. 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. I particularly liked the inclusion of some new background on Uncle Nat that should make for some interesting plot developments going forward and keep the series fresh. 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.

De plot op zich is ook bepaald niet simplistisch te noemen, dus je krijgt wel waar voor je geld en tijd.She now collaborates as a freelance designer with publishers and advertising agencies all over the world, including designing and illustrating The House With Chicken Legs (Usborne) and the Travels of Ermine series (Usborne). The book contains all the elements that we've enjoyed before - the relationship between Hal and Uncle Nat, the friends and characters they encounter, the real places that we can then look up about afterwards, but above all, the exciting plot and twists that come later in the story! I enjoyed the German (which Kindle provides a translation for), and the methods of travel like the Eurostar. I am still excited to carry on with the next book in this series and I do still class this as one of my favourite series of all time, this just wasn't my favourite installment.

The mysteries are so twisty, and the whole new cast feels realistic every time because of the location (looking at you, Death in Paradise! Of ja, toch wel, één klein dingetje: er werd naar de Franse taal met 'Français' verwezen - dat moet natuurlijk 'français' zijn. 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. In the first three books, Hal and Uncle Nat had adventures in their native-UK, in the United States and South Africa.

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.
