Spring, 1858. The route of the Caledonian Railway through the Scottish countryside is disrupted by a fatal crash. The Railway Detective Inspector Robert Colbeck and his trusty Sergeant Victor Leeming are called from London to investigate, and must contend with old enemy Superintendent Rory McTurk to uncover the criminals behind the disaster.
The motive for the crash is unclear, with suspects including the North British Railway, a group of sabbatarians and those with personal vendettas to pursue. Can Colbeck and Leeming crack the case before the Royal family makes their train journey to Balmoral?
What The Critics Said
'A good old-fashioned crime story, the sort of thing that would appeal to Agatha Christie fans'
'Marston's attention to detail is second to none. His research is meticulous and this enables the narrative to come alive.'
'Marston's attention to detail is second to none and his characterisations make us believe in the characters. After ten books, Marston continues to keep to his extraordinary high standard.'
Aberdeen Press & Journal
'Fans of historical fiction and railway aficionados will enjoy Marston's pacy and clourful crime thriller'
