The Last Train to Scarborough Hardback
Part of the Jim Stringer series
One night, in a private boarding house in Scarborough, a railway man vanishes, leaving his belongings behind...It is the eve of the Great War, and Jim Stringer, railway detective, is uneasy about his next assignment.
It's not so much the prospect Scarborough in the gloomy off-season that bothers him, or even the fact that the last railway man to stay in the house has disappeared without trace.
It's more that his governor, Chief Inspector Saul Weatherhill, seems to be deliberately holding back details of the case - and that he's been sent to Scarborough with a trigger-happy assistant. And when Jim encounters the seductive and beautiful Amanda Rickerby a whole new personal danger enters Jim's life...
