"The sheriff is using me as a scapegoat. And if there's anyone fit to take on the sheriff's department, it's you. I read your book, Mr. Mars. I, I couldn't put it down."
"Yeah, well, if you read it carefully you might remember the famous guy went to jail in the end of that one."
At first glance, everything seems well for this handsome baseball champ. According to Woody Goodman he is "the greatest Shark that ever played," he has good chances to end up in the Hall of Fame, and he even counts Keith Mars among his most devoted fans.
Yet Terrence Cook keeps some ugly secrets that could do worse then ruin his and daughter Jackie's reputation: his freedom and physical well-being, maybe even his life, are at stake. His gambling addiction brought him to the mercy of shady people and their violent goons, forcing him to compromise his integrity by throwing an important game; his one-night-stand-turned-Fatal-Attraction fling with late journalism teacher Leslie Dumass makes him an ideal scapegoat to take the fall for the bus crash. Though deeply disappointed in his idol, Keith agrees to take on Terrence's case. But is he really as innocent as he claims?
