Product Description

Dr. Lacy Glass is traveling by rail to an archaeological dig in central Turkey when she sees a man she befriended hours earlier fly past the window of the train. Dead. If not for her, he wouldn't have even been on the train so she feels responsible.
When she arrives at the dig she learns that the dig's backer, a wealthy American, has died there that same morning. Problem? Both men seem to have been named Maxwell Sebring.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book - and Dr. Glass is delightful Sept. 11 2012

Dr. Lacy Glass is traveling by train to join up with members of an archaeological dig in Turkey. She sees a body fly by the window and realises it is a man she had spoken to a little earlier in the day. She doesn't think too much about it until she gets to the dig later on that day. Turns out the dig is facing its own set of problems as their financial backer, a rich American and who was visiting the dig, has died. She is shocked and then intrigued to discover that both men have the same name. Coincidence? She thinks not.

Maria Hudgins does a wonderful job of bringing modern day archeological digs to life in her books. Gone are the Agatha Christie early 1900's digs. Ms. Hudgins is able to bring in facts about archeology without being boring. "The Man on the Istanbul Train" has more twists and turns than a race track, yet she does a masterful job of keeping the reader engaged.

This was a solid book, and was the second one of hers I had read. I downloaded another one for free on my Kindle but liked it so much that I bought this one, and I am very glad I did.

The man on the Istanbul Train, was enthralling from the first page, had a few twists to keep it interesting.Great setting for a thrilling book, especially if you have travelled in that part of the world. Turkey at its best.Made me want to read others from the same author.

I really enjoyed this story and believable characters and I learnt a bit about archeology as a bonus. If you enjoy a mystery give this author a read.

I enjoyed this mild mystery. It was well put together and you didn't know the answers till the end. The setting in Turkey adds to the reader's enjoyment.

3.0 out of 5 stars Started out pretty good April 25 2014
By Anita - Published on Amazon.com

It started out pretty well but went downhill after that. The innuendos were unnecessary as was the F-bomb (could have been the first of several, I don't know because I stopped reading the book and turned to the back to see if I had correctly solved the whodunit mystery). I enjoy a good mystery but not with the unnecessary "additions" I have mentioned.
