There was an interesting philosophical point. One of the few things I know about poker is that it is usually unwise to draw to an inside straight. Here Death apparently does this and gets away with it. But, of course, he can do things ordinary mortals cannot.
I loved the family meetings and reconciliations. The only thing missing from my rides on the Zephyr was someone to share my enjoyment of "the best seat in the house for the greatest show in the country."
* The D&RGW ran five of them together to get the CZ through the Rockies. I'd believed they could only run four.
The glimpses of passengers and train personnel are well developed, and interspersed with the fine amount of research that Ms. Dawson brings to the book (also developed in the first entry in this series), make for an entertaining tale. There's just enough backstory to keep people interested in what Jill is doing in her life (which hopefully includes many more train trips!), and she is a level-headed, entertaining protagonist in this book.
