From the critics
SummaryAdd a Summary
From the 1850s the growing network of steam-drawn railroads were transforming transportation in Britain. Detective inspector Robert Colbeck and, his colleague, Sergeant Victor Leeming, members of the newly-formed Scotland Yard, are challenged to track down the perpetrators of the first Royal Mail train robbery. But why did the robbers derail the locomotive and its tender after the robbery? Will the death of the bludgeoned locomotive driver turn the investigation into a homicide case? Inspector Colbeck suspects that the criminals have malicious plans for the Crystal Palace, the centrepiece of the Great Exhibition of 1851, but can he overcome Superintendent Edward Tallis' skepticism?
