Overview

Commuters see their Departed on Boston's Red Line subway trains. Consultant Harry West is hired to investigate by the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority. His project turns personal when his ex-wife Alexandra Ben-Tov meets their beloved daughter on the Red Line who looks like the teenager she might have become if she had lived. Are the visitors on the Red Line ghosts or hallucinations? Either way, after Harry’s team discovers the source of the visitations, the MBTA declares that it will bring them to an end. Alexandra has a brilliant idea: Build Visitation Rooms that replicate the features of Red Line train cars so that people can continue to meet their loved ones. But not everyone approves. The Archbishop of Boston seeks to get Visitation Rooms banned in Massachusetts. And a gangster who frets that his victims will come back from the dead warns Harry and Alexandra: Cancel Opening Day for the first Visitation Room, or else.

About the Author

I was born in Montreal, Canada. I was a nerdy kid (still am), always into books, and I wanted to write as well as read them, so I carried a Hermes Baby typewriter to Europe after graduating from college in order to start on my first novel. I lugged the typewriter through the UK and then down to Torremolinos, Spain, where I attempted in my tiny hotel room to put words on paper. Not so easy, I discovered, and shipped the typewriter back home. Later, much later, I returned to the task. By then, I’d moved to the Boston area and become a frequent rider on Red Line subway trains, where commuters see their Departed in my novel GHOSTS ON THE RED LINE.  By then, also, I’d seen the world as a management consultant at one of the premier consulting firms, including time spent in fascinating Hong Kong where the story told in my second novel THE TRAIL OF MONEY unfolds. Both novels feature as a main protagonist Harry Forrest West, by amazing coincidence a management consultant, although his projects are far weirder and more exciting than mine ever were.
