The Miser by Simon Barnard and Paul Morris
Steed has a nasty scare, Emma has a pressing engagement
When the phrase 'sleeper train' takes on a very literal meaning, Steed and Peel witness the first action of The Miser, a terrifying extortionist.
The race is on to stop his ambitious scheme - but in this case, appearances can be deceptive.
