A hundred years ago, the London Underground was no safer than it is today, especially for the women found dead in the dangerous new cars. Since transit cops never solve crimes, even in 1895, it’s up to Scotland Yard’s Inspector Sholto Lestrade, in this 11th of his 16 cases first published in the UK (Lestrade and the Guardian Angel, 2000, etc.), to take the case in hand without much help from the Railway Police—or any from Lestrade’s archrival Sherlock Holmes.
