Book IV of The Amtrak Wars. Steve, Cadillac and Clearwater meet in triumph and disaster as they try to evade the clutches of both the Iron Master and the First Family.  The Samurai of Ne-Issan are tenacious adversaries and the Federation rulers have no intention of loosening their grip on Steve Brickman. He and his friends are valuable pawns in a game which, if lost, could mean the end of the First Family’s dream on reconquering the blue-sky world.
