The famous Railway Detective, Inspector Robert Colbeck, is immediately put on the case to determine why such a well-respected man would have resorted to suicide.

Finally- Leeming escapes without a concussion!

After suffering 5 concussions in 5 books, Victor Leeming gets through this one without a scratch. The author was stuck on that element and I was really tired of it. Poor Victor must be relieved too!

reading too slow plot drawn out

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

tighter plot , quicker speaking

Would you be willing to try another book from Edward Marston? Why or why not?

no-- this is my third attempt failed within Gordon Griffen reading

What didn’t you like about Sam Dastor’s performance?

tried hard with slow plot much better that mr griffen

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?
