Publisher's Summary

Kai Owen reads this exclusive audio adventure.

It’s not easy being Rhys Williams. You’re married to the sexiest woman in Torchwood. She saves the world for a living, you move Lorries round in a timely fashion.

Suddenly, you’ve got a mystery of your own. Oh, it starts off being about missing fridges. But it leads to a midnight train pulling into an abandoned platform at Cardiff Station. What is the mysterious cargo that Rhys is unloading from the train? Where’s it going? And what can be behind it?

Rhys Williams is going to get to the bottom of it. All by him, thank you very much. Soon Captain Jack is missing, his wife’s dead, and it’s up to Rhys to try and put everything right. And find those fridges...Written specially for audio by James Goss, ‘Ghost Train’ is set before the ‘Children of Earth’ TV story and features Captain Jack Harkness, Gwen Cooper and Ianto Jones, as played by John Barrowman, Eve Myles and Gareth David-Lloyd in the hit series from BBC Television. It is read by Kai Owen, who plays Rhys.

Very entertaining!

I'm a huge Torchwood fan and I love that this was narrated by Kai Owen. You can hear the difference between the different characters- a really nice job narrating.

In which we hear from Rhys

I've listened to this so many times, and I still love it. We get so used to hearing things from the hero's point of view...this is the chance for a secondary character to explain Torchwood from an outsider's perspective. And boy, what a perspective! Thoroughly enjoyable, with tense moments and laugh-out-loud on the bus moments, well written and well narrated.

Delightful Torchwood story

I didn't like Rhys very much in first two seasons of the show, but I fell in love with his character in this story. Rhys as Sherlock and Colombo in one person is just hilarious and Kai Owen is amazing narator and he is clearly enjoying it. And his impersonation of Ianto is pitch-perfect. This is one of my favourite Torchwood audios.
