Colin Potter has no idea what he's gotten himself into when he filches a chocolate bar from Herbert Muskie -- the Fat Man -- while Muskie bathes in a stream in the woods. Muskie forces Colin to help him break into a home and steal an old woman's fortune. Then, using threats of complicity and future harm, the Fat Man keeps Colin from ratting on him. Gradually, Muskie's influence spreads, encompassing Colin's parents and the rest of his family in an ever-tightening net, forcing them to go along with his criminal schemes.In Muskie, Gee has created a character who brings psychological terror to a new dimension.
