REBEL RUN by Louis Zara


Email this review


An isolated incident of the Civil War, this gives the probable happenings of agent Andrews' assignment to stop the movement of the W. & A. railroad. His first attempt fails, and on his second, with 21 men, he is successful in stealing a locomotive, bringing his telegraph, bridge and track wrecking crew through the Gray lines, but his luck runs out and the daredevils are caught and jailed, tortured and finally executed. A spy story of risks, close timing, and raiders' luck, this is good historical material, with a fine share of suspense.
