Great summertime read by North Dakota writer, Tim Doyle who is a retired railroad engineer. The inside knowledge Doyle brings to the book makes it come alive with the lingo and atmosphere gained from a career of running trains.
The book outlines the Fenian’s, a secret Irish society’s conspiracy to arrange drug shipments by train. The profits going to fund Ireland’s fights for their freedom from English rule. The story is set in America’s north central states in the 1970’s.
The characters and action, especially JL Murphy, engage the reader in the story while sharing Irish history and lots of information about train life.
The 1970’s drug smuggling by the Fenian Brotherhood is part of the centuries-old fight of Ireland to rid England from their country. The book provides a reminder of what life in the 1970’s was like in the U.S. and how little has changed in regard to the ravages of drugs on our society.
The book can be ordered on Amazon or any other online book service.
