Purchase Title ›
Published Date: 1948
Detective-Inspector Thomas Littlejohn of Scotland Yard is travelling to an assignment, exhausted after an arduous journey of delayed connections, when he finally catches the last train. But far from conveying him to his destination, a murder occurs in his carriage, putting a hold on any other plans he may have had. For the local police, feeling rather out of their depth, commandeer the detective to help them solve the case.
Delving into thwarted love, betrayal, and poison pen letters, Littlejohn must pick apart the tangle of grudges. Many men and women seem primed with motives, but which one of them has it in them to kill?
First published in 1948, Death on the Last Train is a classic murder mystery, full of false leads, dead ends, and old-fashioned charm.
