The Highland Falcon Thief (M G Leonard & Sam Sedgman)

Phil Sheppard

A really fantastic book if you like mysteries... It's from a series called ADVENTURES ON TRAINS, and in Doncaster this might be especially interesting to us, because we’re famous for building steam trains!

What the Publisher says about The Highland Falcon Thief:

Harrison Beck is reluctantly joining his travel-writer Uncle Nat for the last journey of the royal train, The Highland Falcon. But as the train makes its way to Scotland, a priceless brooch goes missing, and things are suddenly a lot more interesting. As suspicions and accusations run high among the passengers, Harrison begins to investigate and uncovers a few surprises along the way. Can he solve the mystery of the jewel thief and catch the culprit before they reach the end of the line?
