Who is responsible for the death of lovely Catherine Saks? As Tom investigates the strange collection of travellers who share Car 165, he gets closer and closer to the truth . . . But Tom’s own life is put in danger when the real killer confronts him in this speeding plot.
To commemorate 40 years in print, this classic Canadian adventure novel has been reissued with a brand new look.

ERIC WILSON grew up dreaming he’d become a mystery writer. He’s done just that with his numerous books, using real Canadian locations and creating compelling and resourceful young heroes who find themselves living exciting adventures. Since Murder on The Canadian was published in 1976, the Tom and Liz Austen series has sold over 1.5 million copies in Canada. Wilson lives in Victoria, British Columbia, with his wife, Flo.From School Library Journal:
Grade 4-8-With the Hardy Boys as heroes and stars in his eyes, Tom Austen has a nose for adventure. He is investigating full throttle in Murder on the Canadian and mysterious dirty dealings keep him up nights in Vancouver Nightmare. Wilson clearly had curious readers with little time to spare in mind when he wrote these awesome escapades. The writing is punchy and leaves youngsters wanting more. They will be quickly drawn into the stories and will stick with them until the conclusions when the author and his alter ego, Austen, tie up all the loose ends and see justice served. Short and sharp, these books are great for reluctant upper elementary and young adult readers.
