It is 1926 in the remote camp town of Scenic, Washington, and Billy, Dannie and Finn have more on their minds than the upcoming Fourth of July pageant. When Billy finds a mysterious burlap sack containing a threatening note, he and his best friends have a brand new case to solve. Does the note have something to do with the mysterious, unscheduled trains that are moving through Scenic? The trail leads to a planned railroad heist of a special train that carries raw silk worth millions from the Seattle shipyards to the East Coast textile mills. But time is running out as the three friends frantically search for clues to the identity of the robber before the targeted "ghost train" passes through Scenic. Anne Capeci's latest book in this fast-paced historical series offers young readers a satisfying mystery, well-drawn characters, and an authentic portrait of the rough and tumble life of a western camp town in the 1920s.

Paul Theroux's Ghost Train to the Eastern Star is a journey from London to Asia by train. Thirty years ago Paul Theroux left London and travelled across Asia and back again by train. His account of the journey - The Great Railway Bazaar - was a landmark book and made his name as the foremost travel writer of his generation. Now Theroux makes the trip all over again. Through Eastern Europe, India and Asia to discover the changes that have swept the continents, and also to learn what an old man will make of a young man's journey. Ghost Train to the Eastern Star is a brilliant chronicle of change and an exploration of how travel is 'the saddest of pleasures'. 'A dazzler, giving us the highs and lows of his journey and tenderness and acerbic humour . . . fellow-travelling weirdoes, amateur taxi drivers, bar-girls and long-suffering locals are brought vividly to life' Spectator 'Fans of Theroux are not likely to be disappointed. Theroux has great descriptive skill . . . the world is slightly less unknown by virtue of reading the book' Sunday Telegraph 'Relaxed, curious, confident, surprisingly tender. Theroux's writing has an immediate, vivid and cursory quality that gives it a collective strength' Sunday Times 'A brilliant eye, readable and vivid. Theroux has still got it' Observer 'Fascinating, a joy to read' Tatler Paul Theroux's books include Dark Star Safari, Ghost Train to the Eastern Star, Riding the Iron Rooster, The Great Railway Bazaar, The Elephanta Suite, A Dead Hand, The Tao of Travel and The Lower River. The Mosquito Coast and Dr Slaughter have both been made into successful films. Paul Theroux divides his time between Cape Cod and the Hawaiian islands.

Left behind in China by her father, who has gone to North America to find work, Choon-yi has made her living by selling her paintings in the market. When her father writes one day and asks her to join him, she joyously sets off, only to discover that he has been killed. Choon-yi sees the railway and the giant train engines that her father died for, and she is filled with an urge to paint them. But her work disappoints her until a ghostly presence beckons her to board the train where she meets the ghosts of the men who died building the railway. She is able to give them peace by returning their bones to China where they were born.
