1860, Dorset. A married woman finds some escape from her miserable home life in an affair with another man. But the age-old tale has a new spin put upon it when, en route to a tryst, the wife trips over her dead lover on the railway tracks.
Inspector Colbeck is drafted in from London to solve the hideous crime but with no shortage of conflicting alibis and the victim’s sordid past complicating matters, the mystery is hard to fathom. With pressure mounting from all sides, and urgent matters closer to home requiring his attention, only the Railway Detective can reveal the truth.
