Joseph Burke--ex-marine, ex-husband, ex-somebody--is hired as a bodyguard to protect Lauren Roach, twenty-five and spoiled rotten. The unlikely duo become entangled with Burke's boyhood hero, color barrier-breaking baseball player Jackie Robinson, in a story that is both thrilling and engaging. It is in the historical character of Jackie Robinson that Mr. Parker finds his inspiration, and Joseph Burke may find his redemption
