Stone Barrington is enjoying his usual dinner at Elaine? s when his boss at Woodman & Weld, the law firm where Stone is "of counsel", walks in, sits down, and hands Stone a check for one million dollars. It seems Stone's undercover dealings with MI6 have brought in a big new client for the firm, and they're willing to pay Stone a huge bonus and make him a partner. But almost as soon as he's taken the deal, Stone gets wind of an impending scandal that might torpedo his big promotion: It may be that the lucrative new client whom he? s introduced to the firm might be a Bernie Madoff in disguise.
