Overview
1858. The driver and fireman of a goods train are speeding along near the Scottish border. As they take a sharp bend, they can see that the track ahead has been ripped up. With no time to break, there s no way to avert disaster. Before they know what s happening, the engine has veered off the rails and plunged into the lake below, taking the wagons and men with it. Summoned north by the Caledonian Railway Company, Inspector Colbeck and Sergeant Leeming learn that the sabotage might be the work of a rival company. But as they proceed, a larger conspiracy seems to be afoot. The target: the Queen and Prince Consort en route to Balmoral.REVIEWS "Peril on the Royal Train is exactly what a traditional whodunit should be; railway fiction fans especially should love it. The historical research is impeccable and cleverly woven into the story. The red herrings are eminently plausible... The book thunders along at a cracking pace; it certainly kept this reader on the edge of her seat."Historical Novels Review"
