About this book
Guardian & Observer reviews
The second Jim Stringer adventure is a superbly atmospheric thriller of sabotage, suspicion and steam. The Jim Stringer, steam detective, character will appeal to fans of offbeat detective series from authors such as Boris Akunin and Alexander McCall Smith.
When railwayman Jim Stringer is assigned to drive holiday makers to Blackpool in the summer of 1905, he thinks he's struck lucky. But his dreams are soon destroyed - when his train meets a huge millstone on the line. A thriller of sabotage, this book brings a twist to tales of Edwardian England, steam railways and amateur sleuthing.
