    ENGINEER—USA. EUROPE, 1925. The continent still licks its wounds from the devastating war that raged across it a few years before. In London, an aging professor has uncovered the clues to the whereabouts of pieces of an ancient statue, all but forgotten by history. When his investigations lead him to fear for his life, he enlists the aid of an unlikely group of allies: a retired colonel, a secretive academic, a magician’s wife, and a Yorkshire matriarch with her reluctant assistant. Together they journey across Europe to recover the long-lost statue. They travel in style, on the most luxurious train the world has ever seen. Unbeknown to them, however, their activities have already attracted the attention of a sinister cult, desperate to acquire the artifact for their own dark purposes. ••• THE EXPRESS DIARIES is a tale of a journey into darkness and horror on the world's most famous train. Jacketed hardcover, featuring extensive black & white and color illustrations by Eric M. Smith. 304 pp with ribbon bookmark. ••• You will receive one copy of The Express Diaries, plus a copy of the boxed Horror on the Orient Express, one fashionable Orient Express T-Shirt, one useful Orient Express tote, four replica limited-edition foil-embossed train tickets to the Orient Express, a set of Chaosium dice, an extra pack of handouts for your players or for your Call of Cthulhu collection, a Horror on the Orient Express keeper's screen, your name listed on the contributor page of the book, and our eternal thanks.
