The Necropolis Railway Summary

The Necropolis Railway: A Historical Novel by Andrew Martin

When railwayman Jim Stringer moves to the garish and tawdry London of 1903, he finds his duties are confined to a mysterious graveyard line. Perplexingly, the men he works alongside have formed an instant loathing for him. And his predecessor has disappeared under suspicious circumstances. Can Jim work out what is going on before he too is travelling on a one-way coffin ticket aboard the Necropolis Railway? A gripping detective story, fabulously rich in atmosphere and period detail, The Necropolis Railway steams toward an unexpected conclusion.

The Necropolis Railway Reviews

"'A brilliant murder mystery set in Edwardian London about a railway line that runs only to a massive cemetery.' Mirror 'A classy potboiler... in the best formal traditions of Dickens and Collins (let alone Christie and Chandler).' The Times"
