The Railway Detective Inspector Robert Colbeck is up against his arch nemesis. Will this be a repeat of the horrors of the past crimes? This time the thief/murderer has a beautiful and wily accomplice, who complicates immensely the solving of the mystery. Of course our favorite sidekick, Victor Leeming, plays a huge part in solving the crime on the train. Railway lovers will really enjoy helping solve this one "Bonnie Neely, Amazon Top Reviewer, 2012/08"This is an uncomplicated plot with an easy-to-follow investigative process.
