About the Author:

Edward Marston has written over 100 books, including some nonfiction. He is best known for his hugely successful Railway Detective series, the latest of which is The Circus Train Conspiracy. His other current series are the Home Front Detective , set in the Great War, and the Bow Street Rivals featuring identical twin detectives during the Regency.

Review:

"I’m a fan of Edward Marston’s Inspector Colbeck detective series. I like the coolly heroic Colbeck and his slightly fuddy-duddy side-kick, Detective Sergeant Leeming. Their characters are well-rounded and believable; the author’s research into the workings of the railways is impeccable but never intrusive; and there are enough twists and turns of the plot to keep the reader involved and interested." (Historical Novels Review)
