Format: Kindle EditionNeil Newton has done a great job of character development in The Railroad. While I would prefer my heroes a little less alcoholic, the character of Mike Dobbs and how he reacts to the great changes in his life due to 9/11 and becoming involved with a woman and her daughter escaping the abuse of the little girl's father makes the drunkenness almost reasonable. There is a nice mystery wound through the pages and some suspenseful moments that keep you page turning. Nicely done. A good read.
