"This series promises plenty of rock’em sock." — Booklist
"Full of retro-comic-book-style action and classic movie-serial banter." — Kirkus Reviews
As the world-famous Robot City Express train sets off to break the cross-country speed record amid cheers and celebrations, little do the passengers know that murder is on the menu! Can conductor Harrison glean the truth from a host of larger-than-life characters and find the crook before the train reaches its final destination? This playful pastiche of the detective-fiction genre is just the ticket for reluctant readers.
