Overview

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.

With the exception of a twist or two that are not real plausible, this is an enthralling book. It is well read and overall it moves along very well. The premise is a bit thin but then again in this day and age you could well imagine a series of vital bridges could be blown up before detection could catch up with the bad guy. There is enough realism inserted as to FBI procedure and politics that it all blends well into the fiction. You have to root for the FBI hero as he comes across as just an "everyman" who has his failings just like the rest of us. This cd will make you look forward to the daily commute.
