One Single Ticket by Robert Wallace
Review of New Novel about Box Tunnel
This is a novel set in 1852 about a plot to subvert Brunel’s Great Western Railway scheme to travel from London to New York on a single ticket involving rail and sea travel. The novel is written by renowned author and screenwriter Robert Wallace, who told us I have always been fascinated by Brunel’s light at the end of the tunnel phenomenon. As a writer, I thought it would be great if that light source could be utilised to guide our two intrepid detectives (on horseback) through the Box Tunnel. Brunel’s nemesis has a fictional house at Box called Newton Meadows. Our two heroes have to gain access to discover the truth of the story.
The plot is fictional but based on extensive research with a preface from Professor Angus Buchanan, Emeritus Professor of History of Technology at the University of Bath, who wrote the definitive modern biography of IK Brunel.
