Three people on a crowded train, brought there by the same crime.
Archie Price, painter and police artist, blessed with a photographic memory, is travelling to Chelmsford to testify in a murder trial.
The accused, Freddie Porter, is under police escort in the guard’s van.
Freddie’s sister, Polly, is desperately trying to escape her brother’s gang before they realise what she’s done, unaware he’s on the same train.

Where is Freddie?
Polly is so terrified she is driven to desperate measures and Archie finds himself being drawn into her nightmare…

About Jacqueline Jacques
Jacqueline Jacques was born in war-time Anglesey, North Wales, but has lived most of her life within spitting distance of London; hence the East End references in each of her seven novels. She taught in mainstream primary and special needs schools, until the writing bug bit her and has never regretted her late career move. She is now the author of six books, this is her seventh, and the second of the Archie Price Victorian thrillers.
