Overview

In the latest thriller from #1 New York Times–bestselling author Stuart Woods, Stone Barrington’s newest foe has a short fuse . . . and it’s just been lit.

Stone Barrington is enjoying a boating excursion off the Maine coast when a chance encounter leaves him somewhat the worse for wear. Always able to find the silver lining in even the unhappiest circumstances, Stone is pleased to discover that the authors of his misfortune are, in fact, members of a prestigious family who present a unique business opportunity, and who require a man of Stone’s skills to overcome a sticky situation of their own.

The acquaintance is fortuitous indeed, for as it turns out, Stone and his new friends have an enemy in common. He’s the sort of man who prefers force to finesse, and who regards any professional defeat as a personal and intolerable insult. And when Stone’s sly cunning collides with his adversary’s hair-trigger-temper, the results are sure to be explosive. . . .

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Praise for the Stone Barrington novels by Stuart Woods

“Woods creates another action-packed thriller for his readers to devour, with plenty of interesting twists and turns that make for a nonstop, can’t catch-your-breath read.”—Booklist
 
“Tony trappings, colorful characters, and a magnificent McGuffin . . . Dry-witted dialogue keeps the tone light and drives this glossy, modern take on the classic detective story.”—Publishers Weekly
 
“Mr. Woods knows how to portray the beautiful people, their manners and mores, their fluid and sparkling conversation, their easy expectations and all the glitter that surrounds and defines them. A master of dialogue, action and atmosphere, the Key West resident has added one more jewel of a thriller-mystery to his ever-growing collection.”—Fort Myers Florida Weekly 

 “Addictive . . . Pick [a Stuart Woods novel] up at your peril. You can get hooked.”—Lincoln Journal-Star

This is the second of four Stone Barrington novels coming your way in 2017, following January's Venus Flytrap. No plot details yet, but with over 1.2 million Woods novels sold in 2015, it probably doesn't matter.
