1790, French Caribbean: biracial plantation owner Patrice Beaumont is known as a "kinder" slave master, but his trusted friend reminds him that is no cause for pride. He claims to be committed to ending slavery, but his actions don't back-up his words. Is being the "best of the worst" all he's capable of? 1863, New York City: Giant Irish street fighter Patrick Allen is days away from battling it out with a similarly oversized black fighter, when the Draft Riots ignite dangerous racial conflicts around the city. Never one to take sides outside the ring or join a fight he can't win, he steers clear of the angry mobs. So when he stumbles on a lynching in progress, who can expect him to do anything more than look away? Modern day, New York City: Patrick Walsh, a day trader by occupation and a daydreamer by disposition, sits alone on his terrace trading his portfolio while gazing out at the city skyline. Alone feels right...always has, and he's fairly certain, always will. Besides having a similar name and a proclivity to make cowardly mistakes, what mystery ties these men together?
