    Man In Motion

    When Brad Schluter moved to Connecticut to go to college, he was sure his relationship with Robbie would survive four years separated by less than 200 miles, the distance to New Jersey. Yet as he gets ready to graduate, he and Robbie aren't a couple, and Robbie has a new boyfriend, Neil. Can Brad win Robbie back? Does he even want to? And what is this hold that Neil has over Robbie, a hold that lets him virtually control Robbie's every move?
     
    This story is set in 1985. To most Americans, 1985 was about the second Reagan term and the economic boom that was following the stagnant 70's. The culture was wrapped up in materialism, so it's no wonder that Madonna's "Material Girl" was popular then. Then there is this parallel culture, the gay culture, reeling from the onslaught of AIDS.
     
    Man in Motion is the fifth story in the Chronicles of an Academic Predator series.
