From the Back Cover

"Martin s debut, loaded with railway lore, pairs a lively, often macabre look at turn-of-the-century London with a bang-up mystery." Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
"A classy potboiler . . . in the best formal traditions of Dickens and Collins (let alone Christie and Chandler)." The Times (London)
When railway man Jim Stringer moves to the garish and tawdry London of 1903, he finds his duties are confined to a mysterious graveyard line. Perplexingly, the men he works alongside have formed an instant loathing for him, and his predecessor has disappeared under suspicious circumstances. Forced to live by his wits and assisted by his alluring landlady, he struggles to unearth the truth before he is issued a one-way ticket on the Necropolis Railway.
"An ingenious and atmospheric thriller . . . crackles with the idiom and slang of the period. An eccentric delight."--Daily Express (London)
"So diverting that reader and hero are swept off their feet into a noisy, steamy, antiquated world of great danger." The Guardian (Book of the Week)
ANDREW MARTIN was a Spectator (London) Young Writer of the Year. He lives in London.
