The book, "Train to Anywhere" is an intense, provoking, mobster type of drama played out in the 1920s about the time of the stock market crash and the resulting Great Depression. Eddie, the main character, is on the run for his life after he sees things he should not have.

The story plays out well, and is full of twists and turns along the way. As soon as I thought the character was certain to meet his doom, other elements would spring up and surprise me. The logic from beginning to end was wel

The plot was played out in the 1920's with references to the stock market crash, prohibition and the Depression. logical writing made the story readable; misspellings, run-on sentences, incorrect possessive words, and other typos were distracting.
Should David George Howard decide to clean it up I'll change to 5 stars ! ! !

A well told story. The style was straight forward and the characters were well developed. The plot was intricate, with many intertwined sub-plots. He also did a good job using prohibition and the early depression as a backdrop.

All in all, a very good book that I would highly recommend.

I forced myself to finish reading this...was not worth it.
One-dimensional characters, highly repetitive, lacks imagination.
Enough said. Don't bother.
