First edition. Signed. Fine in fine dust jacket. Umberto Alvarez is a grieving man whose quest in life is to bring down the Northern Union Railroad Company. Ex-cop, Peter Tyler, is asked to come back to the police force to investigate a series of "accidents" happening with Northern Union Railroad's freight trains. Three years prior, Alverez's wife and children were crushed by a Northern Union train when their car stalled between the gates at a crossing, and Tyler will stop at nothing to catch the elusive Alvarez. As Tyler's investigation proceeds, it becomes apparent that Alvarez is no terrorist --- in fact, the more Tyler investigates, the closer he comes to the real truth.
