Publisher's Synopsis

'A great deal of well-researched railway detail [and] killer lines, without which no Andrew Martin novel is complete' Irish Times

On a chilly December evening in 1925, while walking to meet his wife at York railway station, detective inspector Jim Stringer ?nds himself face to face with a man pointing a revolver straight at him.

In a ? ash Jim's thoughts go spinning back to a hot day at the end of August, when he attended a Wild West sideshow at the York Summer Gala with his boss, Superintendent Saul Weatherill, aka 'the Chief'. He remembers the moody young sharpshooter who led the show, his strange Arizonian yet English accent, and above all, his deadeye skills...

Andrew Martin's much-loved railway policeman Jim Stringer returns in his most dangerous investigation yet.
