When I first heard about this book it ticked many boxes for me. Anything about railways, history and the story of Ireland grabs my attention. Coincidentally I had just been reading a novel in which the memorial to Kitchener's death in Orkney waters in 1916 received a passing mention, so I was already aware of the mystery surrounding his demise. I always find conspiracy theories fascinating, usually they are disappointingly ridiculous, this one is not.
Although this is a novel, and a very entertaining one, it is made all the more enjoyable by knowing that what you're reading may well be true. Most of the key characters in the book are real and the plot seems much more convincing than the official story.
When you reach the end of the book you discover that two of the characters are going to go on and have further adventures.
I thoroughly recommend this book, it's a great read and it gets you googling to find out more about the subject.
Of particular interest to FoFNL readers is the fact that either Kitchener or his lookalike did travel the Far North Line in 1916 en route to Scapa Flow to board H.M.S. Hampshire heading for St Petersburg.
Enjoyable, fascinating and thought-provoking.
