What you need to know before your trail

Jenny Bowen is going home. Boarding the Caledonian Sleeper, all she wants to do is forget about her upcoming divorce and relax on the ten-hour journey through the night.

In her search for her cabin, Jenny helps a panicked woman with a young girl she assumes to be her daughter. Then she finds her compartment and falls straight to sleep.

Waking in the night, Jenny discovers the woman dead in her cabin … but there’s no sign of the little girl. The train company have no record of a child being booked on the train, and CCTV shows the dead woman boarding alone.

The police don’t believe Jenny, and soon she tries to put the incident out of her head and tells herself that everyone else is right: she must have imagined the little girl.

But deep down, she knows that isn’t the truth.

Travel Guide

Travel on the Train with Mason Cross

This is a claustrophobic read and has the sense of a locked room mystery. A train with strangers on board, people sleeping in cabins as the train leaves Euston in London and rattles through the countryside north to Scotland. A journey of some ten hours, most of the landscape passes you by in the darkness as you sleep…

But then the landscape changes, becomes more remote and even darker….the train stops in between stations and a woman is found murdered. The litttle girl spotted with her earlier is nowhere to be seen. But the guard insists there’s no little girl on the train….

An overnight train with cabins and in the style of ‘Murder on the Orient Express’ mixes old school glamour with a modern day mystery. The Caledonian Sleeper is a real train and does journeys from Euston to several places in Scotland.
