Book:Night trains, the rise and fall of the sleeper:2018 Book
Author: Martin, Andrew
Year: 2018
Language: English
Type: Book
Publisher: Profile Books
Physical or Electronic: Physical
Note: Originally published: 2017 In 'Night Trains', Andrew Martin attempts to relive the golden age of the great European sleeper trains by using their modern-day equivalents. This is no simple matter. The night trains have fallen on hard times, and the services are disappearing one by one. But if the Orient Express experience can only be recreated by taking three separate sleepers, the intriguing characters and exotic atmospheres have survived. Whether the backdrop is 3am at a Turkish customs post, the sun rising over the Riviera, or the constant twilight of a Norwegian summer night, Martin rediscovers the pleasures of a continent connected by rail.
248 pages, 8 unnumbered pages of plates, illustrations (black and white, and colour) ; 20 cm (pbk)

Publisher: Corsair
Physical or Electronic: Physical
Note: Originally published: 2019 London, 1976. In Belgravia in the heat of summer, Lee Jones, a faded and embittered rock star, is checking out a group of women through the heavy cigarette smoke in a crowded pub. He makes eye contact with one, and winks. After allowing glances to linger for a while longer, he finally moves towards her. In that moment, his programme of terror - years in the making - has begun. Months later, the first of the many chilling headlines to come appears: 'Police hunting winking killer'. Meanwhile in France, Charles Underhill, a wealthy Englishman living in Paris, has good reason to be interested in the activities of the so-called Winking Killer. With a past to hide and his future precarious, Charles is determined to discover the Winker's identity. In the overheating cities of London, Oxford, Paris, and Nice, a game of cat and mouse develops, and catching someone's eye becomes increasingly perilous.
