Dear diary... The good news: Bess, George, and I are on a train bound for Denali National Park, gazing at majestic Mount McKinley as we speed along. It´s truly awesome! The bad news: Someone - a creepy passenger or a disgruntled employee? - is still causing major trouble on the Arctic Star cruise ship, and now that we´re sightseeing on land, the danger has followed. Whoever it is has got even me in their sights - but I´ve been working undercover, so I have no idea how anyone discovered I´m a detective. With every step I take, I´m looking over my shoulder.
