The Countdown to Danger Series

Bullet Train Disaster
You are strapped tightly into your seat on the bullet train. The mountain track is so steep, the aisle is a staircase. As the train accelerates at top speed, a passenger slips out of his seat and begins to fall to the back of the train. He will probably die. Do you unstrap yourself to save him, or do you stay in your seat? Thirty endings per book—choose wisely.
