Description from goodreads :

  Verity Long is overdue for a little R&R (rest and romance) with her boyfriend Ellis, and a vintage train trip through the Tennessee mountains seems like just the ticket. The Sugarland Express carries history and nostalgia in every compartment, and Verity is determined to enjoy it—without ghostly interference. But the ghosts have other plans…

On a dark, desolate night nearly a century ago, the train was stranded in the mountains and a young woman was found stabbed to death in her locked compartment. The murder was never solved, and a ghostly Belgian detective is still pursuing the case from the grave.

To Verity’s dismay, all of the ghostly suspects are back. And when history repeats itself and a new murder mirrors the old, it’s up to Verity and her friends to discover which of the passengers—dead or alive—could be behind the murders before the killer strikes again.


My opinion:

          Captivating! This instalment is perhaps the best so far, good intrigue with several twists, action, suspense, tension and a good dose of humour  simply perfect!!!

This is one of my favourite series and i love the fact i can still be surprised! Verity is really a good character and so loyal and kind hearted now she doesn't always listen to reason but we love her for that. This time all happen on a train journey which mean a specific place, limited suspects and still  a very complicated investigation as Verity must solve a murder in both time period 1929 and now....with the help of her boyfriends Ellis and her ghost Frankie who would prefer to woo his own girlfriend Molly......but Molly isn't that different from Verity so dear gangster is stuck playing good cop as to avoid the ghost detective on the case ( a Belgian one!^^) and impress Molly.

Really all is there,  the little allusion to Agatha Christie is wonderful ( i mean really when you hear "Belgian detective" you can only think of one); the characters are so well though as we discover new side of one we already know and some new one are easy to doubt, hate or love be it living ones or ghostly ones.

I don't want to reveal too much but let say that Ellis and Verity's plan to have a little vacation away from  everyone doesn't go as planned at all, Frankie is a lot more powerful as our heroine stay linked to the other side the majority of the trip and...Virginia still isn't on my "like" list but she sure can be pragmatic when needed.

I do recommend you to read the series in order though but  you won't regret it and i can't wait for book 7!



Score:  5/5
