It’s 1957. Lester “Red” Dolsan is a former first baseman, now a talent scout for the Brooklyn Dodgers, who is haunted by the suicide of his alcoholic wife…and the discovery that he may have fathered a child in a one-night stand with a lonely, concentration camp survivor with a fake name. His search for the child, and his former lover, leads him into a nightmare of crime, violence and betrayal, with a fortune hanging in the balance.
