The British Library
A republished mystery from the Library’s superlative collection of classic crime writing, showcasing murder on trains and suspect automobiles. When Councillor Grayling is murdered after alighting from a train on an evening in wartime London, Inspector Holly must decide which of his fellow passengers committed the crime. A disgruntled employee? A mysterious refugee from Nazi Germany? Or the charming Hugh Rolandson? As the investigation peels away the layers it becomes clear that each passenger has secrets and that the Councillor had more than one enemy among them. A meticulous mystery in which the author provides detailed histories for each of the suspects.

Originally published in 1943, a gripping story by Raymond Postgate (1896-1971).
