It is April, 1852. Victorian Britain’s pre-eminent engineer, Isambard Kingdom Brunel, is concerned and perplexed by the distinct lack of progress in his most ambitious scheme to date. His unprecedented vision: London to New York on one single ticket! Some unseen malevolence is at play.
Brunel seeks to counteract this by engaging the renowned private investigator, Harry Brooke. Brooke, a former soldier in the British Army, a veteran of the 1842 Afghan Campaign, is summoned to meet Brunel in Bristol. But the railway journey from London is, in itself, not without incident - a death occurs and the investigation takes a more serious and sinister twist.
