In this second volume in the Inspector Colbeck series, the author has packed more suspects and motives into this crime thriller for a more engaging read.

Take a train bound for an illegal prize fight, too much drink taken, and a hot day and bad things are likely to happen. Robert Colbeck's assistant, Victor Leeming, never does get to see the fight, but he is invaluable in helping Colbeck untangle the untoward events of the excursion. Good character development and setting and a good sense of humor.
