Introduction

949 St. Paul, MN - that hopeful post-war era where streetcars graced the city, drive-ins bloomed, the internet and shopping centers didn't exist and people handn't yet fled to the suburbs.

Upon this fertile urban landscape, Stanley West has set his rich, profoundly touching novel, the gripping story of young Cal Gant, who, despite the shelter of his idyllic life, his rollicking friends, and the mesmerizing girl he loves, stumbles onto and unthinkaable lair of violence, terror and murder.

When the haunting Gretchen Luttermannn draws him into a strange and secret lie, he finds himselft in a heart-stopping struggle with her brutal father, leading Cal to the brink of self-doubt, terror and death itself, where he must find within himself the backbone and daring to stand against the horror.

When he refuses to turn away, the heart-shattering choices he makes and the terrifying path he takes will raise hairs on the back of your neck, leave a catch in your throat and bring your heart to its feet, cheering.

  "Until They Bring the Streetcars Back"by jolson (see profile) 05/15/15

It's an easy read with well thought out, graphic episodes of the 50's. It had me guessing till the end!!
