Publisher's Summary

Only six major rail bridges cross the Mississippi River and connect one half of our country to the other. When one of them collapses as a freight train is crossing, the FBI sends agents Hush Hanson and Carolyn Lang to investigate. Hush and Carolyn suspect a bomb, but there are no clues to suggest who planted it.

Meanwhile, at an Alabama army depot, a military train carrying a deadly cargo begins its journey west. This train must cross the Mississippi before its cargo becomes unstable - and then another bridge goes down.

As more bridges go down and the plight of the doomsday train intensifies, it becomes ever more obvious that Hanson is being set up to take a fall as part of some bureaucratic political intrigue within the FBI.

    "Not like the others"

    Tedious storytelling, predictable plot, terrible narration and well, just not up to the standard of the other Deutermann books.

    "Don't miss this one! Another great novel."

    He did it again. Keeping us in suspense. His development of characters was superb. And the narration just added more to an already great novel. His detailed description of trains just put you there.

    "Who knew train bridges were so important?"

    I'm a massive PT Deutermann fan, and thus, I really enjoyed this book.

    There isn't a lot to say about this book; it's not exactly a departure from the regular formula of a thriller novel, but I enjoy Deutermann's turn of phrase, and the level of character development; he shares the important points, but doesn't go into excessive detail.

    Yay for trains!

    "Will be good if you are a train enthusiast"

    MacGyver's evil twin brother? I liked Zero Option better but the last quarter of the book was good. The author excellently wrapped everything up.
