Tragedy strikes close to the Detective Department when an old friend of Superintendent Tallis walks to meet a speeding train head on. The suicide, prompted by the disappearance of the man’s wife, has shocked the local community and leaves plenty for Inspector Robert Colbeck, the Railway Detective, to uncover. Whispers and rumours abound but did the dead man, Captain Randall, really take his own life in repentance for some harm he did his wife?
What The Critics Said
'There’s something appealing about the simplicity of Marston’s Colbeck stories that make them perfect for light reading in front of the fire.'
'Holmesian deductions and a very surprise ending. The author captures well the Victorian ambience, its church, and of course the railways and travel of those distant times. Highly recommended.'
Antipodean Holmesian Society
'Marston provides a nice whodunit in the classic tradition, with plenty of likely suspects, red herrings, trains, and guessing work.'
