Review Author: websynapse



Hazel Edwards’ short sequel to ‘Celebrant Sleuth’ sets a mystery on an already mysterious train, one of Australia’s great iconic rides. Quinn returns with partner Art to explore a juicy plot full of all sorts of clues and red herrings, plus role-playing book clubbers testing assumptions on where reality ends and fiction begins. Quinn’s celebrant duties introduce culture and details from the Ghan’s 90 year history.

This is a great read for anyone fascinated by Australia’s long iconic train rides. You might need something longer for the Ghan’s actual 47 hours – this is more of a must-read for before you go!
