An adult novel about hot rodding and changing times.
Mill Sederstrom steps into a time warp when he returns from college to the small house where he grew up.
But the world has changed, and Mill learns that one can’t go home again– not easily, nor completely anyway. Family pressures mount as his parents urge him to find the Big Job. He meets his younger brother, Tonto, and his gang–the “pavement dancers,” a lethal group.
A woman takes him to a roadhouse called “The Place,” but it is not his place, the gangster who owns it tells him. The tension between brothers grows when Mill becomes involved with Tonto’s girlfriend. The uncomplicated life Mill had hoped for soon becomes complicated, and when serious trouble threatens he has no idea which of the several antagonists is responsible.
