Synopsis: It is the summer of 1911 and as Britain is gripped by paranoia about German spies and secret preparations for war, railway detective Jim Stringer decides to set out for a much-needed holiday. But before he can leave he finds himself escorting a young aristocrat, Hugh Lambert, who is on his way to be executed for the murder of his father. When Hugh warns that a second murder is imminent in his isolated village, Jim sees a chance to kill two birds with one stone. And so, as he visits the village with his wife Lydia on the pretext of holidaying, Jim finds he has one weekend in which to stop another murder and unravel a conspiracy of international dimensions...'Enough historical details and rural oddbods for a BBC serial, a baffling plot and - most importantly - good writing' - "Scotland on Sunday." 'Fascinating ...Altogether an entertaining read' - Crimesquad.com. 'An eccentric and engaging novel' - "Sunday Times." 'The period detail is wonderful ...The story builds up a good head of steam early on and rattles along nicely to a satisfying conclusion' - "Guardian."
