Colonel Aubrey Tarleton is a man respected by his neighbors in the small Yorkshire village of South Otterington – as much for his heroic feats in the army as for his social position. So the community is left stunned when Tarleton, deliberately, walks into the path of a speeding train. He is crushed to death on the track, but it is not his broken limbs that attract the attention of the train driver; rather, it is the note pinned to his chest, fluttering in the breeze: ‘Whoever finds me, notify Superintendent Tallis of the Detective Department at Scotland Yard’. The famous Railway Detective, Inspector Robert Colbeck, finds his superior officer in great distress when he arrives at the Yard the following morning. Tallis is clutching a letter from his now-deceased friend. In it, Tarleton makes it clear that he no longer wishes to live if he has to do so without his beloved wife, who has disappeared. When the news arrives that a man’s body has been found on the track near Thirsk, the coincidence is too great. Was Tarleton responsible for his wife’s disappearance, and was his suicide the act of a guilty man? Tallis cannot believe that to be the case and sets out for Yorkshire, accompanied by Colbeck and his trusty Sergeant Victor Leeming, determined to uncover the truth.

Somewhere Marston got to worshipping the idea of the good vs bad woman and their contrasts. Then he has to write about them as if they were in a book written for prepubescent teenagers. By now in his series the characters have become cardboard figures. They never expand in scope and never learn anything new. His strength has been in the descriptions of the railroads but even that suffers in this book. I think I'll give up the series.

I've enjoyed this series from the first volume which I was fortunate enough to stumble across by accident. The author has developed the characters with great care and attention. The plots are always good. These are not your average run-of-mill police procedurals; each has its own twists and turns.

Mr. Marston is one of the top writers of historical fiction out there today. This series set in England as the railroads were coming of age is another example of his great writing ability. He captures the this period and you are transported back to an earlier time.
