Ronny Thompson was injured in the 7th game of the World Series. Having just concluded a spectacular season that earned him such nicknames as “Robo Ron” and the “Pitcher of a Century,” he faced an off-season of rehabilitation and hoping to be able to make a comeback the following season.
At the same time he faces the challenge of reconciling with his girlfriend, Sarah, who had been disingenuous with him for months. He had to consider his feelings for her and sort out what love and forgiveness were all about.
He learns that the Mafia, which had been manipulating his life during the season, was also out to get his girlfriend. Three different contracts had been issued, and she needed protection. Working with the FBI, he comes up with the plans for that protection, plans that work, at first.
Headshots is the story of Ronny and Sarah’s journey though the minefields of major league baseball, Mafia bosses and their hit men, and reporters who want to sniff it all out. An undercurrent of three Chicago Cubs who were bribed to throw the playoffs runs throughout the book. Headshots picks up the story in the seventh game of the World Series, at the point described in In Front of Fifty Thousands Screaming People where Ronny’s life changes.
