This novel is about a down-and-outer and his small daughter and his attempt to provide more for her than she has been given either by him or her mother. Trucks, an aging boxer, breaks his daughter, Claudia out of a children’s home in Wisconsin one night in the dead of winter, and they begin hitchhiking to Nevada. Trucks is unable to find work, except for boxing. He is trapped in an activity for which he is no longer suited. Depressed and confused, his mind is no longer reliable. Trucks steals a car he drives east with Claudia, delusional and drifting in and out of consciousness, to try to connect with June, a woman abandoned by her husband.

[ . . . ]”—Janet Lowery. Buy this book through our affiliate Bookshop.org.

Dateline: Hades, the Underworld, where things go bad. But things are going even worse up top with red/blue states, Brexit, the Middle East, Hong Kong, and college football.

The trio is on the case to right the world's confusion. But, Lord H. being a consomméed plot-thickener, they find themselves followed in the transporter by commie-hating troublemaker J. Edgar Hoover . . . .
