Cora Flash is ecstatic when she finally convinces her mom to let her take a train ride by herself to visit a relative in the mountains. Once on board, Cora stumbles upon her very own mystery: A valuable diamond has gone missing, and only one of her fellow travellers could have stolen it. It's up to our novice detective to solve the crime before the train reaches its destination - or the thief reaches Cora!

Do you believe in ghosts? Cora doesn't, but when she visits her Uncle Andre at his old hotel on Topaz Mountain, a sudden series of strange events makes her wonder. With many people thinking that ghosts are responsible, Cora and Calvin investigate to find out what is really going on! This is the second book in the 'Cora Flash' series.

5 Stars:  "I was hooked from the beginning of this story and I didn't want to finish it until I got to the end of the book.

Even at 24 years old the story kept me on the edge of my seat." - Mel
