mastermind Artemis Fowl is back . . . and so is his brilliant and
dangerous enemy, Opal Koboi. At the start of the fourth adventure in the
Artemis series, The Opal Deception, Artemis has no memory of the fairy
people and has returned to his unlawful ways. He is preparing to steal a
famous Impressionist painting from a German bank, having no idea that
his old rival, Opal, has escaped from prison by cloning herself. Shes
left her double behind in jail and, now free, is exacting her revenge on
all those who put her there, including Artemis.
Meanwhile in the Lower Elements, Opal has planted a trap for Captain Holly Short and Commander Root of the LEPrechon fairy police. Tragedy ensues, and Holly is framed for a heinous crime she did not commit. Instead of staying around to defend herself, Holly rushes to the surface to rescue Artemis. But before Holly and Artemis can get away, Opal arrives and abducts them both. Faced with a world he does not believe in, Artemis may have finally been outsmarted. . .

I know for an absolute fact that the officer in question, Captain Holly Short, did not commit the despicable crime she is accused of, and by the time you have finished reading this account, you will know it too.
