The Silver Locomotive Mystery.


Other works by EDWARD MARSTON

Publication: Allison & Busby Limited, 2009, London

First edition. Fine in fine dust jacket. An exquisitely designed silver coffee pot in the shape of a locomotive is on its way to Cardiff in the care of the young, talented silversmith, Hugh Kellow. It has been commissioned by wealthy ironmaster Clifford Tomkins for his wife, who wants it to be the envy of all her friends....and enemies. But the coffee-pot is stolen. When a murder is committed at the Railway Hotel, Winifred Tomkins is distraught. Caring little for the dead silversmith, all she can think about is her missing treasure. Inspector Colbeck and Sergeant Leeming of the Detective Department are summoned to Wales and are soon confronted by some additional crimes.
