Description

On the first day of the Somme enlisted railwayman Jim Stringer lies trapped in a shell hole. He calculates his chances of survival - even before they departed for France, a member of Jim's unit had been found dead. During the stand-off that follows, Jim and his comrades must operate by night the vitally important trains.

A stunning historical novel of crime in the trenches.
