The McAfees discover a prescription drug ring operating out of a posh hotel that serves as a way-station for face-lift patients, and soon the girls are caught up in a web of extortion and murder involving a plastic surgeon with the survival rate of Dr. Jack Kervorkian, a ruthless band of Canasta-playing widows, an escaped Russian mobster, a Pug named muffy and a Chihuahua named Paquito, a silver-haired and -tongued BH attorney, and a purloined painting by abstract artist Francis Bacon.

Between pratfalls, screw-ups and some good detective work, the intrepid McAFee twins manage to solve the case, making the streets safe again in America's most glamorous city.
