From the author of The Necropolis Railway and The Blackpool Highflyer comes another ingenious thriller featuring Jim Stringer. It is winter 1906 and Jim has been promoted from sleuth to official railway detective for York station. His first day on the job, the mysterious Lost Luggage Porter, "a human directory to everything in York," tips him off to a group of railway thieves. Jim is instructed by his Inspector to infiltrate their gang and is drawn along into their plot to carry out a robbery and make their getaway across the Channel. Soon Jim finds himself swept off to Paris with the thieves, his plight made even worse when threats are made against his wife. Can Jim get to get to her before the villains do?UK Praise for The Lost Luggage Porter:

"Page-turning, confidently written…" – Guardian

"The atmosphere of neglected streets…dingy saloon bars, supper of boiled bacon and pickles, and dismal, unceasing rain are splendidly evoked." –Telegraph
