Publisher's Summary

“Dark and deadly and halfway to hell.” This is London’s Underground Railway, and the description proves only too true in 1895. The murder of Sarah Culdrose is just the first in a series of mysterious and often gruesome deaths that the city’s subterranean trains will witness. The deceased - all women - pile up quickly. There is a maniac at large, and Inspector Sholto Lestrade of Scotland Yard is detailed to work with the Railway Police.
The detective plunges through a tangled web of deviants to solve a string of murders so heinous that every woman in London fears for her life. Will the London Transport System survive? Or will Lestrade run out of steam?

Any additional comments?

depending on your sense of humour, this story is a play on words, this is a funny book.
a few celebrities of the day appear, w.g grace the cricketer and h.g. wells. m.j.trow also does the commentary of the cricket match impersonating john arlott.
the beginning of the story starts in Africa making you wonder where the story is going but it all becomes clear near the end.
cleverly written and performed by m.j.trow.
