Other reviewers have bemoaned the emphasis on social description and railway minutiae but in reality they are what makes the stories hang together. My main reason for writing this review, however, is to highlight the fact that along with all these detailed descriptions of life and society at the turn of the 19th/20th centuries he has made one howler. He describes the use of one pound notes in the proceeds of the main robbery. Between the banking Act of 1833 and the introduction of Treasury notes in 1914 at the start of the First World War there were no One Pound notes! The smallest legal tender paper money in that period were Five Pound notes.
