Not exactly high literature—every chapter ends on a question mark or exclamation point—but I wanted to see how much it inspired the HER Interactive game Last Train to Blue Moon Canyon, which is to say, not so much.

I like these crazy Nancy Drew Mysteries with their constant dangers, threats and narrow escapes, mostly thanks to Nancy, but this takes things too far a few times--like a top of the train chase with Nancy, Frank and Joe! As usual the various characters are interesting without being stereotyped and their interactions enjoyable.

The book the game is based on! I actually think I like the games story better, but this was a really good story nonetheless
