Publisher's Summary

The Railway Detective faces his most dangerous adversary yet. It is 1852, and Inspector Robert Colbeck and his assistant Sergeant Victor Leeming are faced with their most complex and difficult case to date. As a train speeds over the Sankey Viaduct, a man is hurled from a carriage and plummets into the canal below. It later transpires that he has been stabbed to death. With no papers by which to identify the man, the detectives' investigation is hampered from the start.

Suspecting that the victim may have come from continental Europe, Colbeck and Leeming take the case to France where a new railway is being built by a British contractor. But in a new country the detectives face new problems. Anti-British feeling is rife and Colbeck and Leeming must put their own lives in danger to pick up the murderer's trail....

Completely spoiled by filthy language

This would have been a good enough story but was completely spoiled by the frequent use of the most filthy language. It was entirely unnecessary and could have been avoided through indirect references. Audible really needs to give books some kind of bad language alert or an f*** count!. I'm no prude but this was completely over the top.

appalling accents.

although the general quality of the reading was acceptable much of it was a crude caricature. worst of all the narrator gave 2 liverpool police officers BIRMINGHAM ACCENTS. it was excruciatingly.

Good, gentle & entertaining historical mystery

Romance, intrigue, a tough of humour and an interesting, if slightly unbelievable, storyline. Worth listening to.
