Railroad security agent Hook Runyon does not know what to think when he is called to Barstow, California, to meet with the head physician of an Insane Asylum. Hook gazes at the charred remains of the Asylum and is met by a strange request. Hook’s superiors at the railroad want him to arrange rail transport for the remaining inmates of the Asylum.

Hook knows this job is a bad one, but he has no choice but to accept the task. He hires a motley crew of WWII veterans and finds a friend in Andrea, a nurse at the Asylum. With no more than their wits, Hook and his crew bundle the remaining inmates onto the train and set off across the country.

It does not take long for the bodies to start showing up. Some are innocent, others guilty as sin, and there is no rhyme or reason besides their connection to the Insane Train. It is up to Hook to unravel the mystery and derail a plan of revenge that was put in motion with diabolical precision.

This classic mystery provides an unlikely hero in Hook Runyon. Readers will enjoy his quick mind and rough edges as he navigates this carefully orchestrated murder plot. Though this is the second in the series it is not necessary to read these books in order.
