Christmas 1952: the holiday crush is at the train station. Zephyrette (think flight attendant) Jill McLeod welcomes her passengers aboard as they leave the San Francisco Bay area and wend eastward to Denver and then Chicago. As Jill learns more about the train's guests, the University of California, Berkeley, grad notices that several of them have connections to Los Alamos, NM, including a noted physicist from Berkeley. All is going well until a string of petty thefts mount up, and then, shockingly, the professor is found murdered in his compartment.

Train lovers will love this glimpse of a life spent riding the rails on this unique streamliner that originally operated from its inauguration on March 19, 1949 to its final westbound run from Chicago to Oakland on March 22, 1970.

What starts out as an homage to a classic Agatha Christie whodunit, instead is nothing more than a very detailed description of the historic train California Zephyr. Interesting history lesson that makes me want to travel like that, but the mystery takes backseat, and isn't all that interesting.

Interesting story of railroad travel in the early 1950s. The mystery part takes forever to occur and then the book is over.
