December 1860. The morning shift at Swindon Locomotive Works is about to begin and an army of men is pouring out of the nearby terraced houses built by the GWR. Frank Rodman should have been among them, but he is destined for the grave sooner than he might have expected, or he will be, once his missing head is found.But Christmas is fast approaching, and the last thing Inspector Colbeck needs is a complex case, mired in contradictions. As he wrestles with one crime, he is alarmed to hear of another - the abduction of Superintendent Tallis. Colbeck and Leeming find themselves in a hectic race to solve a brutal murder before rushing off to Kent in a bid to save the superintendent's life.

Waterstones Says
Characteristically satisfying, this brilliant seasonal addition to the popular Railway Detective series sees Inspector Colbeck wresting the decidedly un-festive combination of murder and abduction.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Sassy characters, fantastic plot with new discoveries coming to lite with every new page. Bravo Mr. Marston!"--Alina's Reading Corner
"This book is very entertaining and a wonderful addition to the Railway Detective Series. Mr. Marston is a highly creative writer who knows his subject matter and can weave a story that will keep the reader turning the page... A Christmas Railway Mystery is fast-paced, well written and highly entertaining. Anyone who enjoys a good who-done-it will find that they cannot put this book down."--The Cozy Review
"The combination of characters, place, and time gives readers get an entertaining escape that showcases the virtues of logical thinking, along with a toe dip into a bygone industrial age. The whole makes a cozy, light read suitable for winter evenings, especially around Christmas."--New York Journal of Books
