Baccano! 1931 Local Chapter - The Grand Punk Railroad
The second novel in the Baccano! series.
Be careful in a life of crime, because sometimes it can last forever. Welcome aboard the transcontinental train, The Flying Pussyfoot, currently traveling from Chicago towards Manhattan. This volume has event more insanity than the first, but that's what Baccano! is about. Baccano means ruckas, racket, noise! Crazy, unexpected, and mysterious connections between characters, both new and old. There will be psychos dancing on blood, train robbers, freaky immortals and ghosts, mafia hitmen and thier dames, mad bombers going boom, monsters going bump, and yeah...
Just note that Baccano! isn't about anyone's beginings or ends. This party's about all the twists and turns, partner. There are a dozen destinies smashing together with every character taking center stage. Hold on tight, there's no way this can be a smooth ride.

Just as with the first novel, every character is going to play the maing role, swithching between each one often. There are more characters than before, with a few returning faces. Things have gotten even wilder, making it seem like a world straight out of the movies, except a bit messier.
