"I can see no reason why it wouldn't make a good movie. The frame work is certainly there."
Paul Gregory, legendary agent and producer.
ABERDEEN begins on the Chesapeake Bay with the wedding of Ruth Wayne, a gorgeous flight attendant, and Mark Hopkins, a rich and intuitive former SEAL Lieutenant who owns Ridgefield Farm outside Rock Hall on the upper eastern shore of the Bay and runs his family's steel mill in Baltimore.
With the help of his staff, he establishes a refuge for Red Cross medics injured in combat; discovers a Pollock painting worth millions; changes a hair stylist into a radio talk show hostess; proves that a canister of mustard gas came from Edgewood Arsenal, leading to a Captain's court martial; and funds a live film-shoot of a carnival fortune teller and the development of an electronic buoy to monitor pollutants in the Chesapeake Bay.
One thing's for sure: life is never boring in ABERDEEN. It's the finale of a trilogy, with 75 characters, ending with the birth of a foal named Stormy Alex and rise of a farm boy with a nasty knuckleball to the big leagues.
ABERDEEN's legacy: "You Can Be Better than You Are."
