To the people of New York City, subway tunnels are filthy, uninteresting places...
To Jack Devins, each one is a gateway...
After the accidental death of his young daughter Kelly, Jack begins to hear his daughter's voice in the tunnels. He follows her one night, aware that he may never be able to return. What he discovers at the other end is a nightmarish world he never could have imagined.
Trapped, he must learn why Kelly has been calling to him, and what he must sacrifice to make everything right again. With the help of "the burnt man" - a scarred, prophetic beggar - Jack may have a chance at saving his daughter's soul, and maybe his own...
Jack Devins isn't the only one who's lost in Hell.
After his father mysteriously disappears, teenager Danny Devins saves a fellow student from sexual assault. He then befriends her older brother, Matt, a charming, intelligent sociopath who gives Danny something to live for - at a terrifying cost that will change their school forever.
Time is running out for Jack, Danny, and Kelly. Only by crossing the perilous city know as "Trainland," and braving its twisted outer realms, can Jack find salvation for those he cares about most, and prevent a tragedy speeding toward him on tracks he built the day he abandoned the world of the living.
