Inspector Colbeck's Casebook

Thirteen Tales From the Railway Detective

Average Rating:
Rate this:
An eagerly awaited collection of brand new, specially commissioned short stories from the Master of historical crime fiction Edward Marston, featuring his quick witted Railway Detective, Inspector Colbeck.

REVIEW "Told with great colour and panache - a wonderful sense of inhabiting the period. In Colbeck and Leeming, Marston has created a fine pair. This is how history mysteries should be: fine storytelling, marvellous characters reminiscent of the great authors of the mid-Victorian period, and a sneaky mystery, too."

Set in England in the 1850s, Inspector Robert Colbeck and his colleague Detective Sergeant Victor Leeming solve a variety of crimes associated with early railroads. Very entertaining police procedurals.
