In 1908, on the inaugural journey from Europe to the United States of the world's first underwater railway, among the passengers are Rosalind Wallace, her friend Cecily de Vere, and Cecily's brother Charles. When Charles disappears on the station platform Cecily doesn't seem concerned about her brother. And when Cecily runs into an old friend onboard, another belle of the European aristocracy, she appears to forget about Charles altogether. Then, deep under the Atlantic, Cecily and her housemaid, Doris, are found stabbed to death. Rosalind is now trapped in a deadly fight to clear herself of her friend’s murder and to thwart a sinister enemy whose ambitions she can only imagine.

This is an odd book, in the sense that while the characters are older teens, meaning the intended audience is YA, the writing style is simple enough to appeal to more of a middle grade crowd. In any case, the premise is intriguing -- it's like Murder on the Orient Express plus steampunk (in that the train in question is traveling under the Atlantic Ocean, in a glass tunnel). The characters are a bit simplistic, but I thought the last 25% of the book was fairly exciting. The ending left the door wide open for sequels, so readers who enjoy this will likely have additional installments to look forward to.
