#THE BODY ON THE TRAIN by Frances Brody


I did not realize that this was the eleventh Kate Shackleton mystery when I requested it and now I have another author I want to read. It worked as a standalone and was easy to follow. It takes place in 1929. PRIVATE INVESTIGATOR Kate is summoned to Scotland Yard and asked to find an answer how an unidentified man was placed in a railroad car. The train was a special taking force rhubarb to market. There are no clues as to where, when and how the body was place. Kate has a number restrictions on how she can investigate. 
At same day there is a murder robbery that occurs in the village. The police believe they have the man and don't feel the two events are connected. Kate feels the man is not guilty and sets out to prove it.  Kate gets invited to stay with an acquaintance so she can look into the matter of who the body is and how it was placed on the train. She finds chaos in the rhubarb fields before she finds an answer to the questions. The ending shock me. It took me by surprise. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK.
