'I know she's out there - beside the viaduct. Waiting…' The signalman looked anxious.


‘She does that too - but always on the last train. Yes, the last train to Brackley Central.'


Richard Irons, Magdalen College School's new mathematics master, awakens when a strange woman creeps into his compartment with a sad tale to tell - and a deadly favour to ask. But as the train reaches Brackley Central she slips through his arms like a phantom.


Detective Inspector Vignoles will never have a more curious and baffling case as he searches for a young woman apparently back from the dead, a dangerous dog on the prowl - and for the Cobra's Eye, a diamond that destroys the lives of all who touch it…


'It's a cracking good yarn. Recommended'
