The lack of overtime to go around and a fatal attraction between employees at the plant ends in murder. Against this backdrop four very different people are about to collide, Thyme Tyler, educated and ambitious, the industry's only female African-American plant manager struggles to gain complete professional parity, revealing the bitterest of betrayals; Ron Davis, the plant's fiery union leader, protects his people and stays cool even at ground zero of red-hot labor unrest, yet refuses to confront his failings, throwing his private life into turmoil; khan Davis, Ron's brilliant, feisty niece, is pulled by the lure of big money and the temptations of an irresistibly sensual older lover; and R.C. Richardson, Champion's biggest car dealer, who built his fortune through breathtaking risks and long-shot schemes, is dangerously close to losing it all in his lust for khan's body and the big win. Sizzling with scandal, bold true-to-life drama, passion between and beyond the sheets-humor, and piercing insight, Blue Collar Blues is Rosalyn McMillan's best novel yet.
