"Will Anderson is a drunk, heartbroken over the breakup with his fiancee, Elizabeth. He's barely kept his job at his father's company--Detroit Electric, 1910's leading electric automobile manufacturer. Late one night, Elizabeth's new fiance and Will's one-time friend, John Cooper, asks Will to meet him at the car factory. Will agrees, and when he arrives there, he finds Cooper dead, crushed in a huge hydraulic roof press. Surprised by the police, Will panics and runs, leaving behind his cap and automobile, and buries his blood-spattered clothing in a garbage can. What follows is a fast-paced, detail-filled ride through early 1900s Detroit, involving murder, blackmail, organized crime, the development of a wonderful friendship, and the inside story on early electric automobiles. Through it all, Will learns that clearing himself of the crime he was framed for is only the beginning. To survive, and for his loved ones to survive, he must also become a man"--Jacket flap.
