The setting is Atlanta, Georgia - a racially mixed, late-century boom-town full of fresh wealth, avid speculators and worldly-wise politicians. The protagonist is Charles Croker, once a fabled college football star, now a late-middle-aged Atlanta real estate entrepreneur-turned-conglomerate king whose expansionist ambitions and outsize ego have at last hit up against reality. Charlie has a 28,000-acre quail-shooting plantation, a young and demanding second wife - and a half-empty tower downtown with a staggering load of debt.

Meanwhile, Conrad Hensley, idealistic young father of two, is laid off from his job at the Croker Global Foods warehouse near Oakland and finds himself spiraling into the lower depths of the American legal system. And back in Atlanta, when star Georgia Tech running back Fareek "the Canon" Fanon, a homegrown product of the city's slums, is accused of date-raping the daughter of a pillar of the white establishment, upscale black lawyer Roger White II is asked to represent Fanon and help keep the city's delicate racial balance from blowing sky-high.
