The train manager has devised an Agatha Christie role-playing mystery to attract international fans. Themed tourism is trending. Agatha Christie fans joke about ‘Murder on the Orient Express’.
Intriguingly, the ‘Wed, Then Dead on The Ghan ’ scenario offers opportunities to ‘dress up’ , find clues and act out the mystery while seeing wildlife and the stark eco-beauty of the desert.
Quinn deals with Scandinavian Book Club members passionate to see ‘kangaroos’, opal fraud, missing indigenous artifacts, inheritances and the mystique of long distance train travel.
Plus performing a wedding for the descendant of one of the original Ghans. ‘Wed, Then Dead on the Ghan’ is not quite what the roleplaying tourists expected. Fiction becomes fact.
Quinn, a celebrant with style and a few obsessions, but a good heart, solves quirky problems, mysteries and the occasional murder.
