When detective duo Maud McIntyre and her lady’s maid Daisy travel into the Scottish Highlands, the last thing they expect to find is a body on the train… Can these keen amateur sleuths stop a murderer in his tracks?

Edinburgh, 1911: Maud McIntyre feels like she’s been twiddling her thumbs for far too long! So when a lady’s maid called Rose requests help to investigate some strange behaviour in the house she works in, Maud and her assistant Daisy make haste for the remote Scottish Highlands.

But as they are changing trains, the body of a man falls from the carriage right in front of them, a bullet lodged in his head. Maud and Daisy can’t believe it – they’ve waited ages for a new case, and now not one but two have literally landed in front of them! And when the local police rule the death a tragic accident, the pair have no choice but to roll up their sleeves and investigate it as well…

Arriving in the Scottish village, Maud and Daisy must go undercover as art collectors to watch the strange behaviour of Rose’s employer, a local art dealer, while also beginning their hunt for a murderer. And as the puzzle pieces begin to fall into place, Maud and Daisy wonder whether the cases might be linked… Is it possible the man on the train was killed to cover up something happening in the village? And, if so, who would do such a terrible thing?

Then when a local artist is found murdered, Maud and Daisy become certain the two cases are connected. After all, Maud’s nose for solving a mystery has never been wrong before! Searching for the link between the deaths, will Maud and Daisy solve the case before another mysterious murder takes place? Or will this train ticket be their last?

A page-turning historical whodunnit, perfect for fans of the mysteries of Helena Dixon, Verity Bright, T.E. Kinsey and Catherine Coles.
