What happens when one good-and-angry man fights back is murder--and then some…. Bart Dawes is standing in the way of progress. A new highway extension is being built right over the laundry plant where he works--and right over his home. The house he has lived in for twenty years…where he has made love with his wife…played with his son….  But before the city paves over that part of Dawes' life, he's got one more party to throw--and it'll be a blast…. With an Introduction by the Author, "The Importance of Being Bachman"

display_description It's all coming to an end for Barton Dawes. The city's Highway 784 extension is in the process of being constructed right across town and inexorably through every aspect of Bart's existence--whether it's about to barrel over the laundry plant where he makes a living, or soon to smash through the very home where he makes a life. As a result, Bart's suffering a complete and irrevocable burnout of the mental circuit breaker that keeps a mild-mannered person from turning to violence. Rather than give everything up without a fight, he's ready and waiting to ignite an explosive confrontation with the legislative forces gathered against him.
