Jennifer Tabler | 25 comments My husband ask if I might know the name of a book, I didn't so I am asking you. The story is about the transcontinental railroad and the Pinkertons were investigating for sabotage. Also there were bombs that where destroying tunnels and bridges. That is all he can remember aout the book. He is also not sure if its a fiction or non fiction. He heard it on Sirius book radio while they had this station still on air, probally about 2 years.

Bargle | 1211 comments Possibly the 2nd Isaac Bell book by Clive Cussler and Justin Scott. The detective agency isn't the Pinkertons, but is loosely based on them.

The Wrecker

Railroad Schemes?

Dark Trail?
Struggling to maintain order in the face of the transcontinental railroad, rivaling miners, and a justice-seeking marshal, Cole Tyler and Billy Casebolt encounter more trouble in a vengeful stranger from New Orleans.

The U.P. Trail?
While workers build the Union Pacific Railway, the United States Army fights the Native Americans.

Would Sirius book radio only be discussing new books?
