Ethel Lina White’s classic suspense thriller.
Iris Carr is tired and exhausted. Travelling by train from Switzerland to England she is surrounded by alien languages and situations which she finds difficult to comprehend. She is relieved, therefore, when talkative old English governess Miss Froy becomes her impromptu travelling companion. But when Iris wakes from a short sleep, Miss Froy has vanished – and none of the passengers will acknowledge her existence. Is Iris mad? Or is there some more sinister reason for the woman’s vanishing?
