I absolutely love this series! This mystery takes off on a train out of Union Station and moves quickly from there!
Luke Ewell
KC is the step daughter of the President and criminals know that. If she was kidnapped she would be worth a lot of money. She, Marshall and the Vice President are going to her farm. They go to Union Station to go to the farm. No one is supposed to know they are on the train and the vice president is captured. Two secret service agents rescue the kids and vice president from the robbers.

We are really enjoying the Capital Mysteries series by Ron Roy. We moved to the Washington DC area last year and love that we are learning more about the various historic locations nearby. Our girls enjoy the exciting plots and I like that they are interested in seeing the places we read about. This is an exciting story about a kidnapping plot on a train and it reminds me that I need to take our girls to Union Station sometime soon.

We are looking forward to the next book,Capital Mysteries #14:
3rd grade mystery, series book. Nice, gentle mystery for young readers. KC and Marshall are traveling by train with the US vice president to visit her farm for the weekend. On the way, some bad guys uncouple the vice president's railroad car and the vice president disappears. Not only that, it appears that the same someones want to kidnap KC. Where is the vice president? Who are the bad guys, and what do they want with KC? What can KC and Marshall do about it all?

With some ingenuity and some luc
when KC and Marshall get tickets to ride on the express train they sneak out of the train to go explore without the service agents even knowing and when they figure out that this person is going after them there trapped on the train and now where to run.
Its how KC and Marshall are going with the vice president to her house and they figure out that someone is trying to capture them.
i was a little surprised when they where told there was no cute caboose.
