"They had all been invited to go on the experimental trip of the new streamliner all of this closely knit group of railroad officials, with their wives and their children and their friends. Some of these men were on the way up, and some were on the way out, and for each the success or failureof the streamliner meant a turning point in life. Bur Sue and Andy MacVeig h knew of higher stakes and a greater crisis; could the lines fastest trainoutrace death? The first warning had come at a celebration on the eve of t he trial run from New York to Chicago, and when the streamliner started west, one of the invited guests was not present. The second warning came with a high-ball, and brought the grim realization that they were all prisoners of speed as the train rocketed through the night." (from the dj).
