First things first: I really enjoyed this book. The characters come across as real people. Watching Mike Dobbs struggle to reclaim his own life after experiencing first-hand the horrors of 9-11 made me want to reach inside and give the guy a hug. There were also times I wanted to shake some sense into him. Yet Mike soldiered on, a flawed yet genuinely good person who will stop at nothing to help the people he loves.
And that's where The Railroad really shines. The mystery behind the whereabouts of Eileen and Megan is masterfully told. The author had me guessing the entire time, and when the moment of truth came, and everything was revealed, I was blown away. It's a great ending. I don't want to say too much for fear of giving anything away, but it shows what a talented storyteller Mr. Newton is. The clues were there, and just when I thought I had it, the truth was something else entirely. Again, I have to congratulate the author on his wizardry. He got me.
This book is everything a reader could want in a mystery novel, and I recommend it. Highly.
