You will love Pearson. I have read all the books by him that I can get my hands on. This one is filled with action and suspence. Terrorist and terror.

Novel, series of train derailments sets ex-cop Peter Tyler looking to jumpstart his career after being suspended from the force. Seattle Times says "the book tears along like a runaway train".

A suspected terrorist is seeking revenge for the death of his family. The hero is a unjustly fallen, ex-cop and the crime is a homicide involving a major railroad line. This is a cat-and mouse story with a little romance thrown in on the side. The premise is all too plausible today and the criminal accounting by corporate executives make it a very timely story! Good "inside" information about trains.

This book was a non-stop thriller! I hated to put it down. Ridley Pearson really knows how to construct a story. He really keeps you riveted & wanting more. Who really is the bad guy? It may not be who you think! I loved this book!

A parallel story of two men's lives, one representing the law and the other a criminal, but the circumstances blurs which of the two are representing the good, and which may be bad. Suspenseful, well written, intriguing, and very hard to put down. I will look for more books by the author.
