This saga centers around the Chesapeake Bay and Mark Hopkins, a charismatic former SEAL, who juggles his family life with running a steel mill (Bethlehem Steel at Sparrows Point), leasing part of the land to a research institute for the study of nudity, and wheeling and dealing in art.
After finding a Remington bronze in a thrift store, which is sold for a $450,000 profit, his steel mill is sabotaged by a millionaire to avenge the court martial of his corrupt son. Woven into the overtly-comic storyline are several protégés: a hair-stylist who's transformed into a TV astrological forecaster; a tech writer, into a cabaret singer; and a knuckleball pitcher, into a pro-baseball scout whose first discovery is a young Navajo catcher from Taos, NM. The action, suspense and pace are crafted to have you turning pages to see what happens next. Expect suggestive double-entendre one-liners to tickle your funnybone.
