Mystery crime fiction written in the Golden Age of Murder

"This is the perfect volume for fans of short, high-quality, fair-play detective fiction." --Publishers Weekly

"Never had I been given a tougher problem to solve, and never had I been so utterly at my wits' end for a solution."

A signalman is found dead by a railway tunnel. A man identifies his wife as a victim of murder on the underground. Two passengers mysteriously disappear between stations, leaving behind a dead body.

Trains have been a favourite setting of many crime writers, providing the mobile equivalent of the "locked-room" scenario. Their enclosed carriages with a limited number of suspects lend themselves to seemingly impossible crimes. In an era of cancellations and delays, alibis reliant upon a timely train service no longer ring true, yet the railway detective has enjoyed a resurgence of popularity in the twenty-first century.

Both train buffs and crime fans will delight in this selection of fifteen railway-themed mysteries, featuring some of the most popular authors of their day alongside less familiar names. This is a collection to beguile even the most wearisome commuter.

Review:
"This is the perfect volume for fans of short, high-quality, fair-play detective fiction."--Publishers Weekly

"Blood on the Tracks makes a handy book to have around when you want to read a clever mystery but time doesn't permit you to get engrossed in a novel. It can also provide a bit of nostalgia for readers in America where rail travel has declined considerably in recent years."--Popular Culture Association
