Here we see newly married Robert Colbeck taken away from his wife and sent up to Scotland with his sidekick Leaning to investigate the derailment of a goods train. Accident or murder? Only Colbeck and Leaning can find out with a little help from Caleb Andrews a retired train driver who by chance leads them to a plot to assassinate the Royal family. The race is on to find these culprits.
Not a bad book. Very well written and easy to read. Would recommend.
This all sounds rather harsh, but should not detract from the fact that the entire series is very readable, does what it says on the tin, kind of stuff.
I read my way through the first half dozen novels happily enough. They're entertaining if lightweight and undemanding; the kind of fare to relax, rather than tax your brain. Unfortunately, as the series progressed the rot set in, as Marston's strictly formulaic approach led to repetition and stagnation.
By the time of "Peril on the Royal Train" I'd had enough. It was like trying to read a novel written by the author's "Railway Detective" computer programme, and I gave up little more than half way through.
