October 1924 Chief Inspector Reed and Mrs Reed are on the their honeymoon. Traveling on the Flying Scotsman, when a body is discovered. Reed is asked to investigate. Then it is discovered that some jewellery has been stolen from the train safe.
An okay mystery, though the guilty party seemed obvious from the beginning. It also seems Mrs Reed has a sense of entitlement, she wants to be called Lady Gold when she no longer has the legal right to do so. Did get a bit fed up having her attire described. ( )

Lady Ginger Gold is now Mrs. Basil Reed, wife of Scotland Yard’s Chief Inspector Basil Reed. They are passengers on the Flying Scotsman, on their way to enjoy their honeymoon in Edinburgh. Even though it is snowy out, they are looking forward to their time together. Travelling with them is Felicia Gold, Ginger’s sister-in-law from her previous marriage.

Things come to a sudden halt when a grim discovers is made in the mail car. Seems someone has emptied one of the mail bags that was just picked up, and filled it with an unusual and bloody item. Inspector Reed is asked to investigate the matter. Since Ginger has past experience as a detective (previous books in the series) and has worked for the government during the Great War, she is Inspector Reed’s obvious assistant.

This is a cozy read that is light but has some substance to it. Both main characters have their strengths and bring something to the story. It also moves at a good pace, making it easy to enjoy in one sitting.

I found I read “Gingerbread Man,” by Lee Strauss last year and enjoyed it. I was surprised when I discovered the Lady Gold series is by the same author! Completely different eras and genres between the two books. What a versatile writer! ( )
