Last Train Out

by William Arthur Holmes

Available on Amazon,Smashwords, and Scribd, etc.


Clay and his adopted daughter, Jenna, look forward to their upcoming "homeland tour"" to Russia. His intentions are pure. Hers, not so much. When she goes missing, his worst fears are realized. She is not the innocent little girl he thought she was. Not even close. Their only hope now, with or without her approval, is to catch the Last Train Out.

From the Author

This book is very loosely based on our own adoption experience. It's a "what if" look at a possible "homeland tour." This is just me facing my greatest fears, worrying about everything that could possibly go wrong. Let's hope it's not a self-fulfilling prophecy!

4.0 out of 5 stars I like to read stories set in places I haven't been ... By Greg Holmes on February 3, 2016 Format: Paperback

I like to read stories set in places I haven't been before, and since this one was set in Russia, it fit the bill in that regard. The story is fast paced and well written, with a credible plot. The author injects a fair amount of humor into the story, even when the protagonist is in a terrible fix. I found it best to read in a few days, in order to keep all the characters straight.
4.0 out of 5 stars Hold on tight! By Lucy Ang on January 4, 2016 Format: Paperback
Last Train Out is very fast-paced, with lots of twists and turns. The protagonist, Clay, uses a lot of self-depracating humor. A fun read overall.
