Like millions of men who muddle through the barrens of middle age, Bill Ward was unremarkable in every way. But an extraordinary act of bravery -- saving two lives while risking his own -- unexpectedly shoves him into the public spotlight and brings praise and criticism he could never have anticipated, both from those who know him and strangers alike. When circumstances later require him to intervene in another life-or-death situation, he responds with uncharacteristic violence that further sharpens and polarizes perceptions of him. Is he a true selfless hero or an out-of-control vigilante? These events, the attention they derive, and how he responds to both with courage and character fundamentally alter his relationships with family, friends and professional colleagues -- some for better and others for worse.Ordinary Man is the story of an average guy turned unlikely hero, and what happens in the aftermath. It has action, danger, romance, humor, friendship, family, political intrigue, and commentary on popular culture, office politics and society. And lawn care. A fair amount of lawn care.
