A Railroad Bull (cop) is not prepared for the series of murders that are spawning outrage on a national level and bringing the FBI and other law enforcement groups far too close to home searching for the killer.
Randy McConnell has been a Railroad Bull (cop) for the Union Pacific Railraod for twenty-two years. Death on the rail is not uncommon when this much power and steel meets the human body on a regular basis. However, McConnell is not prepared for the series of murders that are spawning outrage on a national level and bringing the FBI and other law enforcement groups far too close to home searching for the killer. The FBI thinks they have the answer with their high tech tactics chasing a Mexican immigrant across five states, but McConnell’s gut has him headed in another direction. McConnell uses his instinct and hobo connections to run the rails chasing a fugitive that kills in Austin, Texas today and has a card game in Nashville the next afternoon. The killer knows forensicsand plays a deceptive game of hide and seek. Could all this carnage piling up on the railroad be done for the writing of a book and fame, or is revenge the driving force for the boxcar blood? When you think you know the answer, the guilty and innocent are turned upside down like a runaway train coming down Blind Man’s Bluff Mountain.
