Review:

The Railway Detective Omnibus by Edward Marston is a delightful read in the containing three separate mystery novels: The Railway Detective. The Excursion Train, and The Railway Viaduct. The novels are reminiscent of Sherlock Holmes and Agatha Christi. In these mysteries, each set in and around trains, Robert Colbeck is the detective called in to solve these locomotive mysteries, set in London in the mid 1800's. If you love trains or mysteries, you'll devour this book! Marston, a film producer, is adept at creating both characters and plots in this his first novelettes.

‘There is a criminal mastermind, plot twists aplenty and enough historical detail to evoke the period without bogging us down. Great fun’
