Abstract:

Mill rats is an easy read with a good storyline and interesting characters set against the background of the steel mills. There are very few books of any type about steel mills. And, not nearly enough books by and about Latinos. The big steel mills around Chicago are built on Lake Michigan and they all have their own docks. In 1978 five steel mill workers--"mill rats⁰"--become involved with smuggling a political refugee out of communist Russia. The event grows into a modern day underground railway for escapees from behind the iron curtain until the mill rats discover they are in more trouble than they every imagined possible. When they try to stop, their lives are threatened. They have no choice but to find the toughest person they'd even known, Lena. She'd left The Region when she was sixteen after a knife fight found two girls seriously injured. Unwillingly, Lena returns to The Region to help her old friends attempt an escape from the Russian Mob, the police and enemies old and new.
