9780749012441: Peril on the Royal Train (The Railway Detective Series)

The driver and fireman of a goods train are speeding along near the Scottish border. As they take a sharp bend, they can see that the track ahead has been ripped up. With no time to break, there’s no way to avert disaster. Before they know what’s happening, the engine has veered off the rails and plunged into the lake below, taking the wagons and men with it. Summoned north by the Caledonian Railway Company, Inspector Colbeck and Sergeant Leeming learn that the sabotage might be the work of a rival company. But as they proceed, a larger conspiracy seems to be afoot. The targets: the Queen and Prince Consort en route to Balmoral. The legions of Railway Detective fans will be treated to an appearance by Queen Victoria in this the tenth Railway Detective novel.

About the Author:

Edward Marston was born and brought up in South Wales. A full-time writer for over thirty years, he has worked in radio, film, television and the theatre, and is a former chairman of the Crime Writers’ Association. He is the author of sixty crime novels set in seven distinct periods of history, and a master of historical fiction. He is the author of the hugely successful Railway Detective series.

Review:

Peril on the Royal Train is exactly what a traditional whodunit should be; railway fiction fans especially should love it. The historical research is impeccable and cleverly woven into the story. The red herrings are eminently plausible... The book thunders along at a cracking pace; it certainly kept this reader on the edge of her seat. (Historical Novels Review)

Book Description ALLISON BUSBY, United Kingdom, 2013. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Spring, 1858. The route of the Caledonian Railway through the southern uplands of the Scottish countryside is disrupted by a fatal crash. Inspector Robert Colbeck and Sergeant Victor Leeming are called from the crime of London to investigate, and must contend with old enemy Superintendent Rory McTurk to uncover the criminals behind the disaster. The motive for the crash is unclear, with suspects including the North British Railway, a group of sabbatarians and those with personal vendettas to enact.

Meanwhile, with the investigation stalling, the newly married Madeleine Colbeck and her father race to reach Inspector Colbeck with important information. Will they be in time to save the royal family before their train journey to Balmoral?. Bookseller Inventory # AAT9780749012441
