SYNOPSIS
WHEN a highly-respected citizen is accused by a pretty girl of assaulting her in a train, and two unimpeachable witnesses say they saw him do it, his position is serious. This was the astounding thing that happened, to Edward Latimer, sixtyish, lovable and slightly quaint, on a journey to the Essex village of Steepleford by the ancient single-track railway known locally as the Cuckoo Line. The incident was only the beginning of his troubles, for a few days later the girl's dead body was found in the lonely nearby saltings
