Necropolis Railway (Jim Stringer Steam Detective 1)

The Necropolis Railway A Novel of Murder, Mystery and Steam  - Andrew Martin mmm. Frankly a bit odd. narrated in the first person by Jim Stringer, a Yorkshire Butcher's boy who would really rather be an engine driver. Gets himself an opportunity to work at a london engine shed and spends most of the rest of the book being a complete idiot, and trying not to get killed. Has a most annoying mode of speaking and seems to be a bit wet. Could have been really interesting, as he's not a detecitve, just an inquisitive young man, but just wasn't. Wont be bothering to seek out the sequel...
