Synopsis

It's welcome to New York and watch out for the locals in this delightful new tale of love, mystery, madness and mayhem in the most most intriguing, romantic, and fast- paced setting of them all!

Bestselling authors Larry King and Thomas H. Cook have collaborated on this Valentine to New York City...this top-speed ride throught the bright lights and dim wits of the big city.

Arthur Vandameer, single dad and TV political commentary giant, the host of WNIN's Speaking Truth to Power, is rich, famous and miserable. He has risen to the top of the city's glittering media heap only to find...nothing. His teenage daughter, priveleged and glamorous Allison Vandameer is blonde, beautiful and wants nothing more than to go to film school. Her boyfriend, Joselito Diaz (aka Goonie), is special to her only because she knows her father cannot stand him.

Roy Bumble spends his time contemplating "the big score" that will make him infinitely wealthy...but returns home to Queens each day from his humdrum doorman job at the posh Sherry-Netherland to his whiny wife Bea Bumble.

Charlie Moon is the big city newspaperman, who is convinced that he has seen everything in this crazy town, until he's sent out on assignment to do a piece for the style section of The Daily Register.

Harry "Ace" Stumbo and Cheeky Putoyna round out the pack. They know all the angles in this dirty town--all the bad men and the worst women--but just don't know how to keep their fingers off them.

When the lovely Allison disappears, these colorful characters (and Mr. Peanut too) are thrown into a citywide web of intrigue, insanity, political values and personal agendas which takes them from The Plaza, to Queens, to Herald Square, to Tiffany, a few bars, a few bedrooms, Bergdorf Goodman and back culminating on live television in front of all of America.
