Children's Literature
What is planned as a pleasant trip to visit his grandparents in Vancouver quickly turns into a sinister journey for amateur detective Tom Austen. A rich and beautiful woman is murdered in the middle of the night on a passenger train speeding across Canada. Her husband is the obvious suspect, but did he do it? Or is someone else responsible for the murder in Car 165 on the Canadian? Tom's investigation will bring him face-to-face with a danger he doesn't suspect until it's (almost) too late! This fast-paced story is sure to thrill reluctant readers and mystery lovers alike. 2000, Orca, $4.99. Ages 8 to 12. Reviewer: Heidi Green

Gr 4-8-With the Hardy Boys as heroes and stars in his eyes, Tom Austen has a nose for adventure. He is investigating full throttle in Murder on the Canadian and mysterious dirty dealings keep him up nights in Vancouver Nightmare. Wilson clearly had curious readers with little time to spare in mind when he wrote these awesome escapades. The writing is punchy and leaves youngsters wanting more. They will be quickly drawn into the stories and will stick with them until the conclusions when the author and his alter ego, Austen, tie up all the loose ends and see justice served. Short and sharp, these books are great for reluctant upper elementary and young adult readers.-Lisa Denton, J. S. Russell JHS, Lawrenceville, VA Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
