Twilight with a Pulse AND a Vodka Twist - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

I enjoyed reading this book very much! I felt that I couldn't put it down, it is very passionate. I would VERY HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone who loves suspense and adventure mysteries!

The book is very well written. I was lovestruck with the interaction between the characters, how well they work together, complimenting one another so well to solve the mystery. Jade Snow is a very intuitive, resourceful, quick thinking, witty

If you enjoyed the charming young detective, Jade Snow, in Stepford, USA, you will absolutely love her next adventure in Gold Train. Jade travels to Russia to do a piece for Time magazine and the second she steps off the plane the excitement, and magic, begins. This thriller has it all! It has the two romantic locations of Moscow and St. Petersburg for its backdrop. It has real princes and princesses, who may or may not be undercover agents and spies. It has the whisperings of revolution, ...more

Gold Train. What images come to mind when you read those words? Do they conjure images of a train filled with gold? That’s what will cross your thoughts when you read the novel Gold Train by Lada Ray. The author paints a vivid image of an early 20th Century locomotive filled with gold reserves from the Czar’s treasury that disappeared without a trace during the 1918 Russian Civil War.

From the very first chapter, Lada weaves vivid descriptions of Russia and Russian culture into a story filled

I read the book blurb and it made me think of Clive Cussler. This is more of a spy adventure than a treasure hunt. It is based on a true story. In 1918, during the Russian Civil War, the Gold Train was attacked and the entire Russian Empire's Gold Reserve was taken. Intrigued? Put your traveling shoes on and come with me.

The conductor stopped the train when he saw two kids on the tracks, running and waving him down. He couldn't run over the kids. The commissar tried to get the train back up and

Dear reader, I hope you enjoy GOLD TRAIN, which is especially dear to my heart as it takes place in Russia, the country I love. I was inspired while creating the story of the lost Russian treasure, the characters of Jade and Alexei, as well as the book's magical setting, and I hope I was able to convey that through my writing.

Jade Snow is a jet-setting journalist and a totally new, original heroine, who finds herself in the most extreme circumstances of her life in GOLD TRAIN (which is saying a

If you like Russia or Russian history you'll have to like this one. This is my first introduction to Lada Ray's work, but I plan to pick up the first book in the accidental spy series and read it too. I like the author's style.

Living her life in the fast lane, Lada Ray, M.A., always wanted to write cool stories, which she'd been imagining in her head ever since she can remember. Instead, she listened to her well-meaning parents and started her life in a more traditional way (for her, that is). Born in Russia, she is a world traveler, linguist, financial consultant, Feng Shui Master, shaman, futurist, and ...more
