Retired private detective and current seventh grader Steve Brixton has a new job: he takes out the trash for five bucks a week.

But it's hard to leave the old game behind.

On a train trip down the California coast, Steve and his best chum, Dana, are pulled into a mystery involving a fleet of stolen automobiles, a vanishing girl, and a phantom train car.

For a great detective, the best part of retiring is coming out of retirement.

    This book is so fun and adventurous. If you've read one and two, you'll definitely want to read this one. The story keeps a cliff hanger for you and you never want to stop reading.

      Brixton Brothers it Happened on a Train is a fun and exciting adventure. If you've read Brixton Brothers one and two you know that Steve Brixton and Dana are super sleuths. The whole series of these books are full of action, humor, and adventure. The genre of this book is mystery. My favorite part of brixton brothers is when Steve and Dana were stowaways in a car. I recommend these books to everyone because they are super fun too read.

        I liked this book because a Mr. Vanderdraak´s wife is stealing his cars. You will need to read the book to find out why she steals them. Then Mr. Vanderdraak gets the cars back in another warehouse and the wifeś warehouse explodes! It was awesome! The detectives jump in a sea cave to run away from Mr. Vanderdraak. It is a long book, but worth the read.

          I love this book! I would not put the book down at all. Mystery lovers will devour this book. If you like Hardy Boys or Encyclopedia Brown, you will love this.
