  • The Mystery of the Ghost Train: A Three Investigators Novel

    Hector Sebastian, Thomas Hudson, Alfred Hitchcock

    (Independently published, Feb. 23, 2020)
    In this Fan Fiction homage to the series of The Three Investigators, the final title, never published and the original manuscript never located, has been written based on the title only along with a specially-commissioned front cover. This may be entirely different from the direction the original author had in mind, but is a complete mystery story written in the same tone as the rest of the series and the multiple authors responsible for having done that.In it, Jupiter Jones, Bob Andrews and Pete Crenshaw win a radio contest for tickets on The Ghost Train, a passenger train traveling from Los Angeles to New Orleans over a 6 day period with a promise that passengers will "see the ghosts of the dead men found in the locomotive!". As it is summer, they get permission to travel unaccompanied just as long as they agree to obey the train personnel.The trip begins inauspiciously with a badly-performed disappearance of the rear locomotive, and seems to go downhill for the boys after that.They had planned to just enjoy themselves and see a bit of the lower states in the nation but become embroiled in a mystery that includes a mystery man dressed in black who walks on the top of the train, a Conductor who by coincidence stops them from chasing the man whenever he comes inside by happening to be right in their path and having seen nothing, a dead body with a bundle of drugs and money that needs the FBI to investigate, and other dangers and mysteries.This is an action-packed story that should please any Three Investigators fans, and especially those who have wondered where that last—announced—story ever went.
