LaVerne Williams is a failed ballplayer and an ex-felon. He also runs the finest barbecue joint in Kansas City.
'Smoke Meat', as the regulars call it, is frequented by a host of extraordinary characters; all are in search of something: music, money, liquor, love, or just a plate of ribs.
LaVerne's restaurant is home-away-from-home to AB Clayton, LaVerne's placid, right-hand man; ailing blues-singer 'Mother' Mary Weaver; and Ferguson Glen, alcoholic priest and fading literary star.
