At the funeral in New York, he meets Lydia Sands, his late dads mistress. Lydia, a mature beauty, tells Daniel, The coffins all yours. Good old Dad wanted to be buried out at sea but must wait till Daniel can afford to ship him there. As a sort of compensation, Dads sketchy creditors have given Daniel a job. He is forced to eke out his existence in snow-covered Park Slope, Brooklyn, working as a landlord, Dads coffin serving as his living rooms centerpiece. As he schemes up ways to get back to his tropical paradise, the beautiful and mysterious young woman in the upstairs apartment comes to him for help. Celeste is the only person able to walk away from a horrible car accident that also involves a secretary of the treasury, a former U.S. attorney general, and an infamous Colombian cocaine dealer. Shes salvaged two bags from the wreck and theyre filled with loot. Now, joined at the hip, Daniel and Celeste embark on a whirlwind May/September love affair. Coached by Lydia and her paramour, a defrocked Italian cardinal whos an expert in tricky finance, they romp around Europe, dodging the law and evading mobsters. Celestes surprise legacy has opened up a fabulous life for them, but it could also get them killed.
