"This is a work of fiction about a real man. Most of what I've written I made up. I have, however, attempted no render Jackie Robinson accurately. As he was, or as I imagined him to be, in 1947, when I was turning 15, and he was changing the world. The rest is altogether fiction. It may be more Burke's story than Jackie's. but, without Jackie, Burke would have had no story. And neither would I". Robert B. Parker. In this new work from bestselling author Robert B. Parker, 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.
