Product description

Review

"'A brilliant murder mystery set in Edwardian London about a railway line that runs only to a massive cemetery.' Mirror 'A classy potboiler... in the best formal traditions of Dickens and Collins (let alone Christie and Chandler).' The Times"

About the Author

Andrew Martin, a former Spectator Young Writer of the Year, grew up in Yorkshire. After qualifying as a barrister he became a freelance journalist in which capacity he has tended to write about the north, class, trains, seaside towns and eccentric individuals rather than the doings of the famous, although he did once loop the loop in a biplane with Gary Numan. He has also learned to drive steam locomotives, albeit under very close supervision. He has written for the Guardian, the Daily Telegraph, the Independent on Sunday and Granta, among many other publications, and his weekly column appears in the New Statesman.
