MALCOM PRYCE    Book Number: 82360    Product format: Hardback

Jack Wenlock is the last of the Railway Goslings, who patrolled the carriages of the GWR trains in the years 1925-47. Sworn to uphold the name of God's Wonderful Railway, Jack keeps the trains free of fare-dodgers and purse-stealers, bounders and confidence tricksters, German spies and ladies of the night. But now as the clock ticks down towards the nationalisation of the railways, he finds himself investigating a case that begins with an abducted great aunt but soon develops into something far more dangerous. It reaches up to the corridors of power and the greatest mystery in all the annals of railway lore, the disappearance in 1915 of 23 nuns. Shady government agents, drunken riverboat captains, a bandaged bookseller, a missing manuscript, a melancholic gorilla and a 4070 Godstow Castle engine, all collide on a journey that will take your breath away. From the Oxford author of the bestselling 'Aberystwyth' novels. 340pp with an A-Z list of all 2,363 stations closed following the Beeching Report.
