Johnny Rios is not the action film star his father is. “Zombies On A Blimp” was a bust. With no backup plan, he takes a gig job as a security guard for “America’s First Hyperloop.” Funded by a down-on-his-luck trillionaire, Rusk Hanson, the hyperloop on its maiden voyage rockets through the Nevada desert from Las Vegas to Reno. Cruising speed: 700 mph.
Johnny has two hours to find an onboard killer-saboteur. He must also regain control of the Hyperloop to prevent it from levitating too high off its maglev track and crashing into the corporate Doctor Henderson’s Footpads Acceleration Tunnel. The passengers in dire jeopardy include his action movie star father, a meth-addicted brain surgeon, a body-building “Sunshine Gal,” VIP ticket winners from the Greedy Bastard Casino, and a STEM girl with identity issues. Johnny must also cope with “Loopster,” a confused Siri for hyperloops, and a fellow security guard terrified of public speaking. Can Johnny overcome his self-doubt and prove himself to his meddling father? Can he stop an out of control hyperloop in time to save everyone from certain death?
From the author: - “Hyperloops are real and will soon take over the world if certain billionaires are to be believed. Some people take them seriously. Others ride the bus. I have a background in live comedy. My grandfather worked for the railroads. I am lousy at basketball. Like everybody right now, I just want to laugh!”
