Murder at Hillingbrook Halt -by Pauline Rowson

Eight people are marooned in the chilly waiting room of a fogbound isolated railway station where a coal fire is slowly dying and a cold cup of tea has been abandoned by the missing station master. Is it just chance that has thrown them together? Or is there an underlying sinister reason?  When the station master staggers into the waiting room and falls dead at their feet it's clear a killer is at large. Each one of them had the opportunity to commit the murder.  Each has a secret to withhold. One of them is a killer.  Which one of them is it?
