    I didn t enjoy this as much as the others in the series but still a good read 3.5 Stars

  2. Ralph Ralph says:

    The author does a wonderful job of recreating both the era and the mindset of the period in which the story is set, though it s inevitable that some anachronistic comments and attitudes appear from time to time He also expertly recreates the experience of rail travel in the mid Nineteenth Century, right down to the poor suspension of the carriages and the fish plates on the rails In this fifth installment of The Railway Detective series, two detectives from Scotland Yard investigate a derail The author does a wonderful job of recreating both the era and the mindset of the period in which the story is set, though it s inevitable that some anachronistic comments and attitudes appear from time to time He also expertly recreates the experience of rail travel in the mid Nineteenth Century, right down to the poor suspension of the carriages and the fish plates on the rails In this fifth installment of The Railway Detective series, two detectives from Scotland Yard investigate a derailing of the Brighton Express, an incident which they see as a deliberate act but which others see as nothing but an accident, eager to cast blame on the dead engine driver The investigation bounces between London and Brighton Suspects and red herrings abound in the suspenseful tale Overall, I enjoyed the story very much and will probably look for other books in the series If I have a quibble with the book, it is in the ending, which is why I give it four and not five stars No spoilers allowed in my reviews, so suffice it to say that I take very seriously Ronald Knox s Rules for Detective Stories, most especially the first one

    This time, the Railway Detective is called in to investigate not just a single murder but the derailment of an entire train, but is it simply an unfortunate accident or somethingsinister Certainly the local investigators have already made up their mind it was a blunder, and the engine driver was to blame Colbeck isn t so sure, and this brings him into conflict with those who are not used to having their opinions challenged.Colbeck persists, assisted by the estimable Sgt Leeming, and it This time, the Railway Detective is called in to investigate not just a single murder but the derailment of an entire train, but is it simply an unfortunate accident or somethingsinister Certainly the local investigators have already made up their mind it was a blunder, and the engine driver was to blame Colbeck isn t so sure, and this brings him into conflict with those who are not used to having their opinions challenged.Colbeck persists, assisted by the estimable Sgt Leeming, and it soon becomes clear that someone on the train had enemies, indeed,than one person But, are either the target or is it someone else entirely Certainly there are those who appear to have something to hide.Marston s books flow smoothly and expertly He is the master of the dangling come on that forces you to read just another page He is highly descriptive and I challenge any reader not to have a clear picture in their mind when reading him.Highly recommended

    Really enjoyed this tale Growing to like the authorRecommended.

  5. Sara Marsden Sara Marsden says:

    Bit of a convoluted mystery but what annoyed me most is his tendency to speak about women of a middle class status with respect and any lower class women as if they were just objects and his obsession with breasts is just tiring He compared them to water balloons at one point I genuinely think my 6 year old nephew could write about women in aconvincing way

    My Mum recommended the Railway Detective books to me They were a bit different and set in the 1800s I quite enjoy historical novels, especially with a murder mystery twist Murder on the Brighton Express begins from the point of view of the driver of the fated Brighton Express just before it crashes with a goods locomotive From this we follow DI Colbeck and DS Leeming as they solve what appears to be just a tragic accident.To begin with I really enjoyed reading about long ago Brighton Edward My Mum recommended the Railway Detective books to me They were a bit different and set in the 1800s I quite enjoy historical novels, especially with a murder mystery twist Murder on the Brighton Express begins from the point of view of the driver of the fated Brighton Express just before it crashes with a goods locomotive From this we follow DI Colbeck and DS Leeming as they solve what appears to be just a tragic accident.To begin with I really enjoyed reading about long ago Brighton Edward Marston spent a great deal of time describing the train station and the pavilion and it was easy to imagine what it would have been like.The main problem I have with this book is that everything seems a bit one dimensional The characters didn t really leap off of the page and the story itself was a bit flat It took me a long time to read for the length of the actual book and I wasn t exactly gripped On the other hand there were sparks I enjoyed reading about Rev Ezra Follis and his going on, as well as Dick Chiffney and his girlfriend Josie Murlow Those sections seemed to come to life muchthan any of the police force Maybe if I d started with book one I would feelfor the characters, but all in all they were rather forgetful.I m afraid Edward Marston isn t on my wish list and I won t be reading anything of his any time soon Maybe I ll revisit him in the future

    Although overall a very entertaining read, this Railway Detective mystery is not one of Marston s finest In fact, I was not just surprised but rather annoyed to find that in the final few chapters Marston denies the reader the solving of his intellectual murder puzzle by suddenly introducing a villain and another victim the reader had never come across before Therefore, readers couldn t possibly deduce who the murderer was or what the motive for the horrendous deeds perpetrated throughout Although overall a very entertaining read, this Railway Detective mystery is not one of Marston s finest In fact, I was not just surprised but rather annoyed to find that in the final few chapters Marston denies the reader the solving of his intellectual murder puzzle by suddenly introducing a villain and another victim the reader had never come across before Therefore, readers couldn t possibly deduce who the murderer was or what the motive for the horrendous deeds perpetrated throughout the book could be If I submitted a short story or novel containing such an essential error to a writing competition, the judges would simply throw it out and not consider it, no matter how well written it might be This is an amateurish approach to crime writing one that readers would expect to see from first time novelists but not from a seasoned author with some 40 years experience like Edward Marston I closed this book with intense irritation, despite having enjoyed reading of Railway Detective Colbeck s romantic entanglements with the lovely artist Madeleine and Sergeant Leeming s nearly fatal sexual collision with one buxom lady of the night I m awarding two stars only purely on account of Inspector Colbeck s boyish charm and Sergeant Leeming s touching devotion to his family

    First of these railway detective books I have read and although not a bad book I did find it pedestrian to a degree to the point that I won t desperately seek out anotherhowever it wasn t so bad that I will avoid them at all costs if I see another at a charity shop.It was just OK reallyit is what it isa detective novel set in the days of steam..nothing earth shattering but readable.

    Review I love this series evenreading them directly one after the other I think it allows you to really get into the heads of the characters I enjoyed this mystery because it gripped me right to the end I was a little disappointed with who the over arching villain was however as I didn t feel there was enough build up to it I love the relationship between Colbeck and Leeming, as well as between the pair and Superintendent Tallis, as they constantly seem to rub up against each other, Review I love this series evenreading them directly one after the other I think it allows you to really get into the heads of the characters I enjoyed this mystery because it gripped me right to the end I was a little disappointed with who the over arching villain was however as I didn t feel there was enough build up to it I love the relationship between Colbeck and Leeming, as well as between the pair and Superintendent Tallis, as they constantly seem to rub up against each other, but you can see there is also some mutual respect there This mystery was unusual in the series as, just about all of the way through, many people didn t believe there was a crime at all, which put new obstacles in the way of the investigators Definitely worth a read if you love historical mysteries and even cosy crime Genre Historical MysteryCharacters Robert Colbeck Victor Leeming Madeline Andrews Caleb Andrews Superintendent Tallis Captain Ridgeon Ezra FollisSetting London Epsom England Series Railway Detective 5Recommend YesRating 17 20
