"It's a long way from the island of Manhattan to the island resort where Preston Fareweather has his hedonistic hideout - avoiding the legal prosecutions of five embittered ex-wives and enjoying the attentions of the prettiest gold diggers who happen to come his way. A terrible human being, Preston makes the terrible mistake of getting friendly with an equally dyspeptic personality: a New York fence named Arnie Albright." "Arnie went to the island paradise to become a happier man. It worked. After a week with Preston, Arnie comes home to New York with a whole new attitude and a proposition for his associate John Dortmunder: a can't miss, million-dollar robbery - of Preston's nearly unguarded, art-filled Fifth Avenue penthouse. With Arnie taking a measly thirty percent cut, it's practically charity for the master thief." But when Dortmunder and his clean-up crew get together to plan the heist, they quickly get distracted. The place they meet, the place they have always met and always will meet - the O.J. Bar & Grill - has fallen into the clutches of a mob crew. Suddenly a billionaire from Fifth Avenue and a would-be Tony Soprano from New Jersey have one thing in common: John Dortmunder is after them both at the same time...and disaster can't be far behind.
