December 1860. The morning shift at Swindon Locomotive Works is about to begin and an army of men is pouring out of the nearby terraced houses built by the GWR. Frank Rodman should have been among them, but he is destined for the grave sooner than he might have expected, or he will be, once his missing head is found.


But Christmas is fast approaching, and the last thing Inspector Colbeck needs is a complex case, mired in contradictions. As he wrestles with one crime, he is alarmed to hear of another – the abduction of Superintendent Tallis. Colbeck and Leeming find themselves in a hectic race to solve a brutal murder before rushing off to Kent in a bid to save the superintendent’s life.



What The Critics Said

Have Your Say

  1. john Newbigin

    Edward Marston.

    His railway Detective Books are nothing short of brilliant. Excellent stories, Good tales that make them very nearly ‘must read another page or two’. Excellent the way he has taken us round the country instead of basing books mainly in London. Can never wait for the next book to come out. Obviously spent a lot of time doing research on the railways concerned.
    More books please.

  2. Michael Wheeler

    Another brilliant book by Edward Marston. Two mysteries and a sneaky policeman. I started reading this series over 5 years ago and look forward to each coming. Colbeck and Leeming are well-rounded characters.
