The Pullman Blackmailer


Doctor Dietler, a ruthless blackmailer has hired a ‘special’ train from the railway magnate Colonel Holman Stevens. Onboard are the famous actress Maria Zinden travelling with her son, Franck, and the armaments merchant Federick von Heissen, both of whom are being blackmailed by Doctor Dietler. Why is Colonel Holman Stevens allowing Doctor Dietler to hire the Pullman train on which to conduct his wicked blackmail business? What are the secrets that the famous actress and armaments merchant have to hide, and what does the Flagler Bridge disaster have to do with this case,? Why do we also find Sherlock Holmes to be a prime suspect for the murder?
