Description-
  • Gustav "Old Red" Amlingmeyer insists on guarding the Pacific Express, despite a generations-old family distrust of the railroads. Big Red is flummoxed. But, as usual, he'll follow his ornery brother just about anywhere. Trapped on a thousand tons of steam-driven steel, Old Red and Big Red find themselves riding with a crafty gang of outlaws, a baggage car jam-packed with secrets, and a killer hidden among the colorful passengers. Filled with wit, flavor, humor, and suspense, On the Wrong Track will have you rushing to the station!

Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine It's MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS in the Old West. The continuing saga of Otto "Big Red" and Gustav "Old Red" Amlingmeyer (Holmes on the Range) is a genuine knee-slapper. When the brothers are hired to guard the Southern Pacific Railroad from the train-robbing Give-'em-Hell Boys, Gustav, an ardent admirer of Sherlock Holmes, begins "deducifying," with Otto providing the muscle, along with sarcastic observations. William Dufris gives an engaging performance of the likable cowpokes and the unruly assortment of scoundrels and ne'er-do-wells that surround them. His attitude is pitch-perfect to the period as are his renderings of a drunken ex-lawman, a beautiful woman, a rail-riding bum with pretensions, a Chinese doctor, a Negro porter, and many more eccentrics. Dufris brings flamboyance, charm, and hilarity to Hockensmith's wild, wild Western. S.J.H. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine
