Description
(CWA Ellis Peters Historical Crime Award Finalist) It is winter 1909, in this fourth entry in Andrew Martin's Ellis Peters Historical Crime Award–winning series, and railroad detective Jim Stringer desperately needs his anticipated New Year's promotion to sergeant in order to pay for a nurse for his ailing son. Jumping at any opportunity to impress his supervisor, Jim agrees to investigate a typical assault in a nearby town. But when his train hits a snowdrift and a body is discovered buried in the snow, he is soon on a mad chase to find the suspect, trailing him to the furnaces of Ironopolis and across the country on a dangerous ride in which the pursuer becomes the pursued.

"What makes this story line come alive, especially for old-time train buffs, is Martin's obviously deep knowledge of and love for everything having to do with the steam locomotives and stations of the past. His hero, Jim Stringer, has made his way, during the last years of the 19th century, through the railway ranks to the position of detective with Britain's North Eastern Railway Police ... [and] traverses an industrialized landscape as bleak and polluted as any in Dickens or Upton Sinclair."—Booklist
