Armchair underground

Rose

Title: Rose
By: Martin Cruz Smith

Enjoy a romantic, suspenseful tale of the underground. Visit a coal mine one mile deep under Victorian England from your own comfortable armchair. Read about free-living pit girls and hardy miners in the company town of Wigan. Be amazed by the clever methods of the American mining engineer assigned to investigate the disappearance of the local curate, engaged to the mine owner's daughter. Shiver at the description of the dangers of coal mining, from gas leaks to collapses, runaway coal cars to explosions. Well-written, educational and very entertaining!
