A Railway Detective investigation.
SYNOPSIS: “1861, East Anglia. Alone in a first-class carriage, the Swarbricks are robbed at gunpoint, but when the universally admired Jarvis Swarbrick fights back, the train robber takes more than money and jewellery, killing the local Member of Parliament who had been working to unify East Anglia’s tangle of railway networks.
Inspector Colbeck is brought in from London as the only detective in Britain with enough expertise for the job. But as Swarbrick’s glowing reputation begins to crumble, the line of investigation isn’t clear: is this the act of a bungling burglar, a business rival, a disgruntled son, or a jealous lover?”
