Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

As a train speeds over the Sankey Viaduct, the dead body of a man is hurled into the canal below. Inspector Robert Colbeck and Sergeant Victor Leeming take charge of their most complex and difficult case yet. Hampered by the fact that the corpse has nothing on him to indicate his identity, they are baffled until a young woman comes forward to explain that the murder victim, Gaston Chabal, is an engineer, working on a major rail link in France. As the case takes on an international dimension, problems accumulate. The detectives wonder if the murder is connected to a series of vicious attacks on the rail link that is being built by British navvies under the direction of a British construction engineer. Colbeck and Leeming have to survive personal danger, resistance from the French government, broadsides from their Superintendent, and many other setbacks before they solve the crime.

Synopsis:

When a landscape artist witnesses a body plummeting from a train speeding over the Sankey Viaduct into the canal below, Inspector Robert Colbeck and Sergeant Victor Leeming face their most complex case. They are unable to identify the disfigured corpse and press appeals bring forward no information, but observing his clothes have a Continental cut, they travel to France where a new railway is being built by a British contractor. Anti-British feeling is rife, and Colbeck and Leeming must put their own lives in danger to pick up the murderer's trail. Has Colbeck finally met his match?

Synopsis:

???The past is brought to life with brilliant colours, combined with a perfect whodunit. Who needs more???? ??? The Guardian
