This story follows the life of a man named Walker who worked digging the tunnels for the New York subway system in the early 1900s. The book alternates between Walker's life and the life of another man whose connection to Walker remains a mystery until the end of the book. By the conclusion of the story, it had gone in a direction I had not anticipated and didn't love. I mostly enjoyed the book for the history behind it.
