Necropolis Railway (Jim Stringer Steam Detective 1)

The Necropolis Railway A Novel of Murder, Mystery and Steam  - Andrew Martin Having read and enjoyed some of Andrew Martins non fiction books I thought that I would give one of his fictions books a go. That and we used to live near Brookwood cemetery, so had an interest there as well.It is written in the first person, and whilst I don't mind this way of writing a story, this comes across as stilted and disjointed. This may be because he is trying to get the effect of the victorian / edwardian culture, but it didn't work for me.The murder mystery part was well considered, but it was let down by the way it was written.
