Reviews

"Hot stuff - this Bond from the 19th century." Daily Express "A tale of murder, highway holdup, riotous goings on - and a plot to carry out the first-ever Great Train Robbery... There's enough excitement to raise a really good head of steam!" Southern Evening Echo "A most unusual story, packed with exciting incident and peopled with plausible characters. You really should introduce yourself to this new hero, forerunner to all the fictional detectives that have ever entertained us." Northamptonshire Evening Telegraph "An increasingly fascinating saga, set against the completion and the opening of the world's first public railway between Stockton and Darlington. The book contains a strong element of mystery, both ingenious and tantalising." Cambridge Books Supplement "Blackstone, a combination of Regency dandy and tough private eye, takes precedence." The Northern Echo "Plenty of action and excitement, and good period background." Woman's Journal "An exciting tale... the author has caught the atmosphere of the era. This certainly is a first-class adventure." Blaydon Guide "A thriller every inch of the way." Heywood Advertiser "An exciting story set against the authentic background of the period." Worcester Evening News "Edmund Blackstone is the name. It has a good virile ring about it. Blackstone is fast on the draw with his flintlock and wields a nifty baton with the official crown on it, but when he wants to command the respect of a hostile crowd he'll slug it out with an adversary using his bare knuckles. Curiously in the pantheon of national heroes, from Robin Hood to today's detectives and secret agents, nobody had written about Bow Street Runners till author Richard Falkirk invented Blackstone and turned him into a world bestseller." Daily Express "This Bow Street Runner who is rapidly becoming one of today's most popular fictional characters. Mr Falkirk, besides spinning a good tale, also gives us an intimate insight into life in the early 19th century." Evening Post "This, Blackstone's third adventure, should satisfy everyone."
