The setting is Atlanta, Georgia – a racially mixed, late-century boomtown full of newfound wealth and wily politicians. The protagonist is Charles Croker, once a college football player, now a late middle-aged Atlanta conglomerate king whose outsized ego finally meets reality.

And back in Atlanta, when Georgia Tech star who drives Farek “the Canon” Fanon, a homegrown product of the city’s slums, is accused of dating the daughter of a pillar of the white establishment, the posh black lawyer becomes Roger White II to represent Fanon and help prevent the city’s delicate racial balance from becoming sky-high.
