Parallel Lies by Ridley Pearson
In this stand-alone adventure, Ridley Pearson leaves his series detective Lou Bolt behind. Parallel Lies features former homicide cop Peter Tyler who is trying to redeem himself after being unjustly fired. A friend gets him a job investigating a murder in a boxcar for the railroad. Tyler finds that very little about the situation makes any sense. He finds what he assumes is a serial killer out to revenge the deaths of his wife and daughter in a railroad accident. Nothing is as it appears at first, of course, but Tyler brings the investigation to a satisfying conclusion.
