Murder on the Bluebell Line The evidence: a shattered skull, a broken jaw, faded honeymoon photos and incriminating letters. The motive: revenge, ambition or glory. The suspects: the Pompous solicitor, the French Priest and the man in black.
Holmes and Watson stake the reputation of their creator on a journey to a tiny Sussex village, to unearth the truth behind the discovery that astonished Edwardian society and shook British pride to the core. It may have been the greatest April Fool in scientific history, but the death of an early Englishman at Piltdown is a true tale, in which any similarity to events or people long since dead is entirely deliberate.
