Overview

"When Perry Jacobs jumps a train, his journey takes him through some of America's darkest territories... and the darkness of his own soul.

After doing time for burglary, Perry is a changed man. The horrors he witnessed inside a system where only the most brutal survive won't be easy to shake. He and his best friend Cedar jump a train to recapture some of that innocence they felt during their childhood. But the train is as dark a beast as the one younger Perry thought had given his brother cancer.

What should have been a short, monotonous trip turns into a nightmare. When Cedar insists they save a young woman being raped by two escape convicts, they end up being accused of her death. Cedar is gravely injured when they try to jump another train and makes Perry swear he'll go back home and tell his father the truth. Perry's journey takes him through small towns run by brutal deputies and train camps run by equally brutal drifters.

With every lawman in the country looking for him, Perry's friendship is put to the test when he's forced to choose between the woman he loves and fulfilling an impossible promise. All with the belief that his very survival comes at the price of a moving train set on ending his days."

    This is a great read! I would highly recommend it.

    The main character has a complicated past and is haunted by trains. This along with spending time in prison makes for a story that is hard to put down. He and his best friend free a young girl that's been kidnapped and once she's unable to cope with her freedom, the two of them become fugitives and everything changes. The compelling truth of how the main character deals with his demons once he meets others who don't have the same predispositions is what makes this story so interesting. If you have any interest in trains this is a story you'll want to read.

    Check it out!

    This book was quite the adventure from the start. Just when I thought everything that could happen to the main character had already occurred the author surprised me with more. I really enjoyed this book and it kept me entertained from beginning to end.
