"Kate Colquhoun is a fine, robust writer who makes the most of its every twist and turn."---"The Mail on Sunday"

"The re-telling of this true story pits justice against baying-for-blood hysteria in a sensationally episodic tale that is every bit as compelling as it must have been when it happened."---"Easy Living"

"Enthralling. . . . A fascinatingly quirky portrait of the underside of mid-Victorian London. I found it unputdownable."---- Miranda Seymour, "The Telegraph"

"More than a well-spun tale of searching for justice amid hype, "Murder in the First-Class Carriage" reveals the underside of Victorian life, where interest in the macabre flourished alongside the propriety modern readers may expect. Fans of true crime and the general reader alike will appreciate Colquhuon's talent for enlivening facts with everyday moments. The story is especially noteworthy for its balance between the case itself and the atmospheric, gas-lit city in which it occurred."---"Foreword Reviews"

"Journalist Colquhoun has crafted a marvelously suspenseful account of the investigation, a trans-Atlantic manhunt, and the ensuing trial. This is an intriguing story about emerging forensics and also an engaging social history, focusing on how a spectacular crime, the first on a British railroad, riveted public attention."---"Booklist"

"Ms. Colquhoun's meticulously researched true-crime account, first published in England, is a tick-tock of the arrest and trial of a German tailor following a chase across the Atlantic...its final revelation is a showstopper."---"New York Times"

"An enthralling account of a real life mystery . . . Her well-told tale would stand up in court--unlike much of the evidence in the case." ----"The Independent"

"A suspenseful, well-paced account of a baffling mystery."---"Washington Post"
