The Train Rider

The Train Rider

As Victoria’s top homicide investigator, Darian Richards spent years catching killers. But there was one man he couldn’t catch, who drove him to the edge: the Train Rider.

When someone began snatching girls, Darian swore to stop them. At first the criminal would keep them a week then give them back. Darian warned that wouldn’t last – it didn’t. From then on, their bodies were never found. Girls kept disappearing and all they had in common was the fact they’d last been seen on a train.

The ever-increasing list of the vanished broke Darian, forcing him to walk away. Now, retired on the Gold Coast, the nightmares have finally stopped. But then three girls go missing from Queensland trains. Darian knows that the killer is playing him, that he has a choice to make. But when the decision means a girl will die, there is no choice. He has to stop this man once and for all.
