Vintage 1984 NIGHT TRAIN by Thomas F. Monteleone (Pocket 44952-4) horror book

Cool find!

From the back cover:
In the bedrock beneath New York, a beautiful news reporter and a hard-bitten cop enter an eerie maze of abandoned tunnels, searching for a train that vanished with all aboard - over half a century ago.

But under the city of skyscrapers and tourists, under the peep shows and the penthouses, within the clammy darkness, around the next turn... an unholy evil waits to disgorge itself in violence and blood. Now the final nightmare must explode.  Now the killing frenzy must begin...

We're talking UNHOLY EVIL, people!


  1. I found this book at a Salvation Army in Barberton Ohio.The retro cover is what sold me. I took it with me on a trip to India and read the book on a night train of a different sort. It was a good reed, a bit cheesy but i like the character development the structure and the idea of an interdenominational portal in the earth that other worldly monsters emerge is great. i left the book in India but i took the cover with me.

    1. Thanks for your comment. It is good to hear from someone who has read the book. I agree - the cover is fantastic. It reminds me at bit of the Twilight Zone episode "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet"...(the gremlin looking in the airplane window).
