The Last Train To Heaven Paperback – August 16, 2011, by D. R. Hintz (Author)
Virtually flawless book
THE LAST TRAIN TO HEAVEN, is a story for kids from teens to 99. Like a slow starting train, leaving the station, the story accelerates to an earth-shattering conclusion. Justin Mann is graduating from High School. Events have guaranteed that, to say the least, this will be memorable event. He has no idea that events put in motion on the other side of the world will dictate the outcome of this special evening. Vassily Provotich and three of his friends have been recruited into an extremely secretive project. They were only told that the task they are about to complete was essential to saving the Russian space program. How will four graduate engineering students and a prophet of doom contribute to this otherwise seemingly innocuous night and how many of Justin's friends will actually get to ride that last train to heaven? What will Justin do when he discovers that the old saying, "Seeing is believing", is backwards?
