The Train

The Train Cover

Insightful, poignant, and ultimately inspiring—with touches of humor throughout—The Train chronicles the coming-of-age of a young man living on the Gulf Coast of Alabama during the 1950’s and 1960’s. It is the story of how one thoughtful boy, gradually forged “as a Damascene smith might have shaped a blade” by his father, his heroes, his family, and his friends, becomes “a harder, stronger substance that will take a keener edge.”

This debut novel by Tony Jordan, a former senior CIA operations officer and Air Rescue pilot, introduces Jack Jourdain and Jean-Louis Thibodeaux, two remarkable young men who are showcased in future volumes as they confront real-life military, national security, and international business challenges. Inspired by actual events, the books explore how a set of simple values, forged in youth, can serve as a lifelong moral compass—no matter what obstacles life presents.
