He has been entrusted with a priceless silver coffee pot, designed in the shape of a locomotive, by his elderly employer and mentor silversmith Albert Voke. But two of Hugh?s fellow passengers are taking an enormous interest in the valise and as the journey progresses, Hugh?s tongue is loosened and he tells them all about his priceless cargo. It will be the last mistake he?ll make.When a dead body is discovered in a room at the Cardiff Railway Hotel, beside a large empty valise, the great Railway Detective Robert Colbeck and his trusty Sergeant Victor Leeming are called in to investigate, and they soon discover they have a real mystery on their hands
