His work has earned him the title of "master of fiction" from USA Today has called him "The John Grisham of Golf." In addition, The New York Times hailed The Greatest Player as "Golf's Literary Rookie of the Year," and the Seattle Times ranked The Greatest Player as second on its all-time list of "Five Wonderful Golf Books." At one time, The Greatest Player and The Greatest Course were the first and third best-selling sports fiction in the country.

Now, J. Michael Veron returns with his most intriguing work yet....

The caddie occupies the most unique position in all of sports. He is a coach who doesn't have to stay on the sidelines, a waterboy who doesn't have to wait for timeouts, a psychologist who doesn't have a couch, and a fan who doesn't have to buy a ticket.

In Bobby Reeves' case, he's also a bail bondsman, not to mention a savior who will attempt to help him resurrects his game - and his life - in most unexpected ways. From a jail cell in Baton Rouge to the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach, the gifted but troubled golfer and his mysterious caddie travel a remarkable path to great courses and to redemption.

With his trademark style and golf expertise, J. Michael Veron has once again crafted a remarkable golf story.
