In these three novellas, three men of similar backgrounds and with similar experiences collide with the justice system. One escapes from his native land. Another is imprisoned within the U. S. A third fights against his imminent arrest. Some of their antagonists are identical, and the three men have, by their opposition to the status quo mentality, invited retribution. But their responses vary. Their conflict with authority helps them define themselves in a society that demands conformity. None of the three yields to what each considers unreasonable demands, but each pays heavily for his resistance.
