The Railway Detective Series is a fascinating look into the person of the detective and his sidekick that hates trains, but it is also an interesting peek into the time and place and trains! Edward Marston always writes exceptional mysteries in themselves, but in each of his series, he provides accurate and detailed insights into the people and places of the period. Highly recommended.

I am enjoying the story, but the editing (or formating) in this edition is strange. Chapters should end and begin a bit more fluently. But, as I said, I think the story is good.
