In the basement of Angus Quin's home the Union Pacific 844 steam locomotive sounds its whistle as it emerges from a mountain tunnel. The 844 reminds Angus of an idyllic childhood time.In Cuba, standing silent next to an abandoned sugar mill, lies the relic of a worn out steam locomotive. To Liliana Beltran this is the symbol of a Cuba that has gone terribly wrong.Angus Calumet Quin is a brilliant man working on Wall Street as the great recession of 2007 begins. As Angus was managing the firms exposure to the oncoming financial debacle there came a woman - Liliana from Havana. With fierce determination Liliana Beltran was quietly engineering a new future for Cuba and she needed Angus' help. It is said that: "Cuba doesn't need nuclear weapons ... it has Liliana."Can the nuclear power of Liliana, teamed with Angus, the Wall Street powerhouse, create a new Cuba? As the heat builds between them the future of Cuba lies in the balance. What irony is this - America, with its growing financial uncertainty and social unrest watches as Cuba begins to claw its way out of its communist, socialist failed experiment. As America rushes to socially engineer that which has ravaged the island nation, Cuba, with help from Angus and Liliana, begins life anew. Two powerful personalities with an undeniable chemical attraction, two nations heading in opposite directions, trains large and small, this is the stuff of my story.
