Railway to the Grave (Railway Detective Series) (T&hellip by Edward Marston
39 of 39 people found the following review helpful
I always look forward to a new outing of the famous Railway Detective Robert Colbeck and Sargeant Victor Leeming and i am not disappointed.In this new case we find them in Yorkshire looking into the suicide of a old friend of his boss Superintendent Tallis,but this is only the start of the intrigue as the wife of the dead man is missing and the locals believe that the dead man had killed her.This is a grand romp with lots of railway interest,that has been throughly researched and has a fast-moving plot with meny twist and turns that has you guessing to the end.If this is your first excursion with Robert Colbeck it will not be long before your looking for the rest of the time table.

As a fan of Fancy Jack Crossman,i was looking forward to Garry Douglas Kilworth new man of action and how he would compare with our established hero of six action packed adventure`s.Well a very promising start,set in the Zulu Wars of 1879 he has our Ensign Sabastian Early following in the footsteps of John Wilcox `Simon Fonthill` and Saul David `George Hart`,but where they were in the thick of the action at Isandlwana and Rorke`s Drift Sabastian is more of a observer to the events, although he is in the action at Rorke`s Drift.Were i think Garry has been clever is that he appointed Sab as the Provest-Marshal of Lord Chelmsford army,and he soon fine`s out it the most unpopular posting in the… Read more
