Summary
"Vividly depicts the perilous world of 'long-haul boys', who drive by night to bring their goods to the markets of America's cities. Ex-G.I. Nick Garcos [is] a tyro trucker bent on satisfaction from the man responsible for crippling his father, ruthless market operator Mike Figlia. But when Figlia gets wise to his plan, Nick finds himself in a web of treachery and heartbreak."--Container
