Retired gridiron great Boomer Esiason has delivered a sharp, edgy story with riveting insider details about the game and business of professional football. When golden boy Derek Brody signs a $6 million dollar deal to play for the New York Stars, the rookie quarterback figures the world is his oyster. Then reality sets in after meeting his new football "family "--the all-too benevolent owner of the Stars, Papa Goldman; his daughter and Director of Communications, Dominique, who holds a certain fondness for quarterbacks; a frazzled and frustrated head coach; a team of malcontents and racial tensions; and a shady Director of Personnel. But all of his concerns for the team become secondary when an ex-Stars quarterback is found dead, and Brody finds himself hustling just to stay alive while confronting the scars of his own past. With a little luck, smarts, and help from a beautiful aspiring actress, this is one time he can't drop the ball!
