Nick's starting point is a (factual) train derailment in Gloucestershire in 1928 when there was considerable loss of life. What made the tragedy even more memorable was the fact that the remains of two well dressed young children, a boy and girl, were found in the wreckage. Despite massive local and national publicity no one came forward to claim them . . . Nick's brilliant novel seeks to identify them and unravels an evil conspiracy which does its worst during the war time Blitz.
