When a highway project puts Barton Dawes out of work and threatens to destroy his home, he has more than enough time on his hands to plot his revenge. Driving his wife and friends away with his obstinate refusal to give in, he pushes the powers that be to the limit, take a stand against what he sees as a criminal act in progress.
Stephen King, the world's bestselling novelist, was educated at the University of Maine at Orono. He lives with his wife, the novelist Tabitha King, and their children in Bangor, Maine.
Bart Dawes has spent 20 years working in a local laundry, struggling to get by and provide for his family. He's always been a dedicated worker, wanting nothing more than to live a quiet life in a world that seems dead-set on ensuring that he doesn't. But when a new highway extension is scheduled to wind its way straight through his very existence, Dawes takes matters into his own hands and, in doing so, loses everything he's ever held sacred. Narrator G. Valmont Thomas struggles to bring life to this introverted character. Thomas's narration is full of one-dimensional emotional responses and indefinable shifts in tone that confound rather than compel. L.B. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
