Scrappy Russian-American New York detective Artie Cohen is back. Having just married Maxine Crabbe, Artie and his bride are planning their honeymoon when he gets the news that his friend, cynical reporter Sid McKay has died. Sid had been pestering Artie for help with a story, but his pending nuptials kept him from getting involved. The city is in the grips of the 2004 Republican National Convention when Artie starts to investigate. He battles the Russian mob and the wealthy business establishment of New York City as he tries to uncover what Sid was trying so hard to find. Lots of tension as Artie unravels a convoluted set of clues to his friend's death.
