"A brilliant murder mystery set in Edwardian London about a railway line that runs only to a massive cemetery." Daily MirrorWhen railwayman Jim Stringer moves to the garish and tawdry London of 1903, he finds his duties are confined to a mysterious graveyard line. The men he works alongside have formed an instant loathing for him - and his predecessor has disappeared under suspicious circumstances. Can Jim work out what is going on before he too is travelling on a one-way coffin ticket aboard the Necropolis Railway? "Guaranteed to make the flesh creep and the skin crawl, a masterful novel about a mad, clanking, fog-bound world." Simon Winchester"A murderous conspiracy of a plot graced with style, wit and the sharp, true taste of a time gone by ... So beautifully nuanced and so effortlessly pleasurable to read that you almost want to keep it a personal secret." Independent on Sunday
