Best of the series yet June 2 2012
By Mom@Home - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Most memorable book of the series with suspenseful development right up to the satisfying end; Inspector Colbeck's relentless pursuit of a remorseless killer keeps the story moving fast towards the climax. Just when defeat looks eminent, the story takes a new twist. The ending does justice to the ruthless murders committed, and lays to rest an old crime which has burdened him. The Inspector's gentle & honorable romance with Madeline is sharply contrasted with the twisted relationship and manipulative passion of the villain and his lover. Read the book in one sitting.
Great Train Ride July 22 2012
By Bonnie Neely - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Blood on the Line by Edward Marston is another of the intriguing mysteries set in England in the late 1800's. The Railway Detective Inspector Robert Colbeck is up against his arch nemesis. Will this be a repeat of the horrors of the past crimes? This time the thief/murderer has a beautiful and wily accomplice, who complicates immensely the solving of the mystery. Of course our favorite sidekick, Victor Leeming, plays a huge part in solving the crime on the train. Railway lovers will really enjoy helping solve this one!
My Husband Loves This Series! June 7 2013
By E. S. - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My husband loves railroad mysteries and this is his favorite railroad series. Although the books do not have trains through much of the individual books, they set the scene and according to my husband, the detective is really well written and he (my husband) gets absorbed into these books and cannot put them down. I will be reading them also. We have kept every book in the series, which we don't often do with books.
Good, but tedious at times July 18 2013
By Ruth A. Michel - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
While I enjoy the books, some of the characters are tedious, namely Madeleine's father. Sergeant Leeming also needs to grow. His constant complaining about being away from his family is childish, especially considering his line of work. Mr. Marston hasn't allowed his characters to change much in the 8 books I've read.
Going downhill March 26 2012
By H. C. Jennett Jr. - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I've been a fan of this series but I may just don't seem to enjoy them as much as I used to. I skipped through the last third of the book. Very slow, plot seems contrived. Maybe I'm just tired of the characters.
