Customer Review

on 10 March 2013
Having recently read Andrew Martin's chatty history of the tube, 'Underground, Overground', I went back to his Jim Stringer 'Steam Detective' series and re- read number three in this. 'The Lost Luggage Porter' was just as good as I remember it from the first time round. The Edwardian 'voice' of Stringer is really well done, the atmosphere (drab York, exotic Paris) is cleverly and carefully constructed, and the characters (especially the psychopathic criminal, Valentine Sampson) are effectively developed. This is a great and unusual crime series. I would recommend beginning with 'The Necropolis Railway' and reading through the series so that you can see how Stringer and his circumstances change and how he and the world around him develop.
