According to the book description of The Daddy Rock, “Roger Price is a retired NYPD officer battling depression after his wife and young daughter are killed by a drunk driver. He is contacted by a woman who claims that he is the father of her twenty-two year old daughter, Bonnie, who has leukemia and needs his bone marrow to survive. When Bonnie is diagnosed with leukemia, neither Claire, Brad, nor their other children are a match for Bonnie which stirs Claire's suspicion that Roger is actually her biological father. After learning about Bonnie and the possibility that he is her father, and that she is gravely ill, he vows to help her. Roger's bone marrow is a match, and DNA proves he is her father. Bonnie then undergoes dangerous "conditioning" with radiation prior to receiving Roger's tissue donation. At the same time, Roger's best friend, Danny, also a retired NYPD detective, is pursued by gang members that he arrested while he was a rookie. They served their sentences and are seeking revenge.”
