Back in New York City after the London adventures of The Short Forever, cop-turned-lawyer Stone Barrington is approached by a colleague at the firm of Woodman & Weld who needs help with a celebrity divorce case. Heiress Elena Marks needs proof of her layabout husband's infidelity before she can begin divorce proceedings. When the undercover work Stone sets up turns dirty-and catastrophic-leaving the errant husband dead and the mystery woman gone without a trace, Stone must clear his own good name and find a killer hiding among the glitterati of New York's high society.

Carpenter-the beautiful British intelligence agent first encountered in The Short Forever-arrives in New York to begin an investigation of her own; Stone suspects that her case is strangely connected to the dead husband. And he and Dino, his former NYPD partner, are set to face the most bizarre and challenging assignment of their very colorful careers.

Back in New York City after the London adventure of The Short Forever, cop-turned-lawyer Stone Barrington is assigned by his law firm, Woodman & Weld, to aid an important client in her quest to dump her unfaithful husband. Stone thinks the job is ordinary dirty work, but then things take a murderous turn, and the FBI and a foreign intelligence service become involved.
Stone is pleasantly surprised to run into Carpenter, the beautiful British agent introduced in The Short Forever, who is in the city to begin an investigation of her own, one whose subject she refuses to reveal. But he suspects that her case might have some connection to the errant husband's, and knows that he and Dino, his former NYPD partner, are about to face the most bizarre and challenging assignment of their very colorful careers.
