Summary
In 1947 a World War II veteran is hired by the Brooklyn Dodgers to be Jackie Robinson's bodyguard
Summary
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
