A snippet of Agatha Christie on the Ghan Across Australia

  • Book: Wed, Then Dead on The Ghan (Celebrant Sleuth series)
  • Location: Australia, The Outback
  • Author: Hazel Edwards

Review Author: Sippy



It’s short, fun, a spoof on Agatha Christie’s ‘Murder on the Orient Express’. It’s murder on the Ghan in the Outback when the trains tops for a desert wedding. It was interesting to discover what riding on the train is like with freezing nights, very hot days through the heart of Australia.
