Book Review – Fear on the Phantom Special

A very readable story of 350 pages, the 17th in the Railway Detective series by Edward Marston

The murderer(s) are not obvious at all. At various times I suspected most of the leading characters but none of them were the ones who dunnit! There is a slightly weird ending which to my mind needs some explanation and I hope there’s a sequel explaining the ending. The only quibble is the method deployed to murder a character, which I think would have been heard by someone, but maybe not.

This book is recommended and I especially like how there are two mysteries in one, one being investigated by Robert Colbeck in the Lake District and another by his wife in London of a less serious nature.

I was born in Leicester. I attended school in Yorkshire and University in Liverpool. I have been to 93 countries and territories including The Balkans and Armenia in 2015, France and Slovakia in 2016, and some of the Greek Islands in 2017. My sense of humour is distilled from The Goons, Monty Python, Fawlty Towers, and Midsomer Murders. I love being creative in my writing and I love writing about travelling. My next books are a travel book about Greece and a novel inspired by Brexit.
