"Everyone On This Train is a Suspect"| Reviewed by Jenni Olson

"Everyone on This Train is a Suspect," by Benjamin Stevenson, is the perfect read for any mystery lover, a follow-up to "Everyone in My Family Has Killed Someone." Stevenson’s newest book can be read as a standalone, but readers would miss out on some really fun connections if they haven’t read the first book.

A crime-writing festival aboard a train, crossing through the Australian desert sounds like a dream. Until it isn't. 

Ernest Cunningham, the protagonist, feels as though he has truly made it as an author after being invited to the festival alongside several well-known mystery writers. However, the trip doesn't go as planned after one of the authors is murdered, leaving the other authors to act as detectives determined to catch the murderer. This is easier said than done when all authors involved are mystery experts and know how to get away with murder. 

Benjamin Stevenson's writing style is like none other. Both of the “Everyone…” books are written in first person, allowing the reader to be fully immersed in the story. Ernest Cunningham, the protagonist, speaks to the reader, teasing clues about who the killer may be. 

"Everyone On This Train Is A Suspect" is incredibly clever, and will leave the reader laughing out loud as they try to piece the mystery together. Filled with witty humor and jaw-dropping twists, this book is a must-read!
