Publisher's Synopsis

A thrilling investigation of a true Victorian crime at Dublin railway station, shortlisted for the CWA Gold Dagger for Non-Fiction 2022.

'All the shocks and surprises of the best crime fiction' The Times Crime Club

Dublin, November 1856: George Little, the chief cashier of the Broadstone railway terminus, is found dead, lying in a pool of blood beneath his desk.

Yet there is no sign of a murder weapon and the office door is locked, apparently from the inside. Thousands of pounds in gold and silver are left untouched at the scene of the crime.

Augustus Guy, Ireland's most experienced detective, teams up with Dublin's leading lawyer to investigate the murder - but the case defies all explanation. Then a local woman comes forward, claiming to know the killer...

'An intriguing and compelling true-crime whodunnit' Irish Times

'A true-crime masterclass... As compelling as any thriller' Philip Gray, author of Two Storm Wood
