Wildly funny, with hairpin plot bends and inventive characters, this series is firmly on track to become a bestseller.
I have a station announcement: their collaboration is a chuffing triumph. Fans of Agatha Christie, or, more recently, Robin Stevens and Katherine Woodfine, should adore this mystery which makes a steam trail all of its own.
