Product description

Review

"'The best railway sleuth there is.' Independent on Sunday" --This text refers to the paperback edition.

From the Back Cover

"These historical novels are the best I have read this century." -- Katherine A. Powers, The Boston GlobeFrom the author of The Necropolis Railway, The Blackpool Highflyer, and The Lost Luggage Porter comes another thrilling mystery featuring railway detective Jim Stringer. It is winter 1909, and Jim desperately needs his anticipated New Year s promotion in order to pay for a nurse for his ailing son. Jumping at any opportunity to impress his supervisor, Jim agrees to investigate a standard assault in a nearby town. But when his train home hits a snowdrift and a body is discovered buried in the snow, Jim finds himself tracking another dangerous killer. Soon he is on a mad chase to find the suspect, trailing him to the furnaces of Ironopolis and across the country on a dangerous ride to the Highlands. As pursuer becomes pursued, Jim begins to doubt he will ever get his promotion or that he will survive this case at all. No matter how deeply Jim plunges into the poverty and filth of England s industrial age, he never loses his sense of wonder at the monstrous beauty of its great machines. New York Times Book Review

Fairly bursts with energetic prose . . . Andrew Martin succeeds brilliantly at re-creating a railwayman s lot. Seattle Times ANDREW MARTIN was a Spectator (London) Young Writer of the Year. He lives in London.
