4.0 out of 5 stars The Yard but not the station, 28 Jun 2012

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Yard (Murder Squad 1) (Hardcover)
An enjoyable and diverting read. But one glaring error of research ( and many readers have praised Alex Grecian for his research) as early as The Prologue. A pity it concerned a railway station as so many wonderful crime novels have involved
grizzly deeds on such premises! No steamer trunk, black or otherwise, would ever have been unloaded from a train at Euston Square Station for a porter to deal with. That station was part of the underground system and the name Euston Square Station did not exist in 1889. At that time it was known as Gower Street Station,only becoming Euston Square in 1909. Alex has the Railway Company correct - the (London) North Western Railway, but he confused Euston Square Station with Euston Station, which at the time was the London terminus for the largest rail company in Britain. Seeing this error did rather act as a bit of a distraction as, rather "anorak-like, I kept an eye out for other blips. Nonetheless, well worth reading.
