Stephen Romano's “Resurrection Express” (Gallery Books, $25) is wild, brutal and graphic.

Elroy Coffin is in a maximum-security prison and has put in two years of his 30-year sentence.

He's a high-tech thief who can break, crack or get out of almost anything.

He suffers from partial amnesia after taking a bullet in the head, and this is what keeps him obsessed with finding Toni, his wife.

Jayne Jenison, a woman with connections, wealth and her own gang, gets Coffin released from prison to help her find her daughter.

But Coffin's nemesis, David Hartman, finds out he's been released, and the killings begin.

No one is what he appears to be and only Coffin can stop the Resurrection Express.

It's peak violence, few likable characters and nonstop action.
