Synopsis

Blood on the Line by Edward Marston

1857. On the LNWR train to London, a criminal is being escorted to his appointment with the hangman. But the wily Jeremy Oxley, conman, thief and murderer, has one last ace up his sleeve - a beautiful and ruthless accomplice willing to do anything to save her lover, including cold-blooded murder. When the Railway Detective Inspector Robert Colbeck learns that Oxley, his arch nemesis, has escaped, black memories of their shared past leave him no choice but to do his duty, whatever the cost. With the faithful Victor Leeming at his side, Colbeck must use all of his skills to track his elusive enemy. But could he have finally met his match?

Reviews

'Political intrigue, lots of railway interest, romance, and a fast-moving plot, this has to be a book that will keep anyone interested to read to the last page. Thoroughly recommended'

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
