Reviews

"Guaranteed to make the flesh creep and the skin crawl. A masterful novel about a mad, clanking, fog-bound world."--Simon Winchester, author of The Professor and the Madman and The Map That Changed the World

"A classy potboiler . . . in the best traditions of Dickens and Collins (let alone Christie and Chandler)." --The Times (London)


"Andrew Martin succeeds brilliantly at re-creating a railwayman's lot."--The Seattle Times (02/01/2007)
"The atmosphere is first-rate: Martin does a stunning job of bringing to life the era when steam locomotives chugged from London through the British countryside...The lurid tone and Jim's growing uneasiness lead to a supremely scary climax."-- (11/01/2006)
"Martin's debut, loaded with railway lore, pairs a lively, often macabre look at turn-of-the century London with bang-up mystery." (Starred review)--Kirkus (09/19/2006)
"...This suspense-filled debut...will appeal to those who like mysteries with unusual settings."-- (12/01/2006)
