Summary
  • The city's Highway 784 extension is being constructed right through every aspect of Bart Dawes's existence -- his home, his neighborhood, and the plant where he works. But something's happening inside his head, a complete and irrevocable burnout of the mental circuit breaker that keeps a mild-mannered person like Bart from turning to violent means. He's not about to give up everything without a fight
  • 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
