Description

The Secret of the Night Train

Sylvia Bishop

(Scholastic)

Maximilenne Morel longs for adventurous opportunity. Chance intervenes. It seems ‘Tricky’ Great- Aunt Elodie in Istanbul charges Max with the responsibility of becoming her companion. However, Max faces a complicated train journey across Europe. What’s more, she’s escorted by a curious travelling companion. It seems that danger is in the air.  Therefore, what is The Secret of the Night Train ? Furthermore, could it have anything to do with the theft of the Heartbreak Diamond?
It seems that right from departure, we’re aware of the dangers that Max will face. Not only is there the sighting of newspaper headings about the theft, but then there is the uncertainty of her surroundings. In fact, each step along the way takes her further from her family and closer to something unknown. In whom might Max trust? Then again, who are her companions, really. Sylvia Bishop captures our interest immediately with this speedy, twisty-turning adventure story. What’s more, like Alice Éclair Spy Extraordinaire, we’re aware of our heroine’s interest in her journey and the story that each seems related to somehow. Will Max solve the case and thereafter arrive to meet Great- Aunt Elodie? Thereafter, what is the REAL story here?
