Fresh off the runway at Teterboro, Stone Barrington arrives home to find an unexpected new client on his doorstep, anxiously soliciting his help. But everything is not as it seems, when the client reveals the true nature—and value—of his recent turn of fortune.

Just like an old Bond film where he's always in the sack with the newest female character(s). I love Stone Barrington but the books are becoming so predictable! Time to mix it up a bit.

Stuart, Stuart, Stuart....perhaps it's time to retire to Maine, or Santa Fe, or England if all you can write about is how the rich can best manage their money or fly their new planes. The newest Billy Barnett story was a treat reminiscent of the early Stone Barrington stories and it would be wonderful if we could see more of those. This one was a waste of both your and my time and my money.

I've read every book in the series and this one was horrible. I don't know what the purpose of it. How Barrington hasn't contracted an STD by now is beyond me

I have read all the Stone Barrington books, and they have continually gone down hill in content recently. The one prior to this was going to be my last one ever, silly me, gave it one more chance. Bye Stone, nice knowing you!

Every angle can be determined before one arrives. The ending is absolutely ludicrous.

So much fun reading the progression of Stone's life and character! I highly recommend the entire series. I've read them all and have NEVER been disappointed. The only thing I dislike is the condescending message he adds at the end. I mean The Is .

I have read and enjoyed them all before this. Very bad and Stuart Woods should refund everyone who bought it.

Worst Stuart Woods book I have ever read. No real plot, most of it about a guy blowing money buying everything that came along, because he won some lottery. I was very disappointed in this book, usually Stone Barrington books are interesting and fun. Sometimes tough to put down. This one I had to push myself to finish and not delete it. Hopefully future books will get back on track. I would not recommend this book at all.

Rich kid gets richer. No resolution. No point to this book and no ending. A big disappointment.

I told myself never to purchase or read another Stuart Woods' book. This one now is the clincher. The ridiculous wealth, instant house purchases, super luxury, instant auto purchases, serial serial romps with fabulous women, averted danger - all told in a blase, repetitive manner - adds up to boring and unbelievable. Who cares about the characters and their escapades? Not I. The final blow is an ending with no important character resolution - if, indeed, you care about the characters. And why does every character use the word "reckon"? How this so-called writer has had a successful career is beyond me.

I loved the story, but the book ends without resolving everything. Guess I'm buying the next one to see how everything turns out.

Not an epic novel, but a tip of the hat to the author who took on a very difficult project and got this book published,

Stone Barrington books are definitely formula, light, fantasy life, reading. However this is written by a ghost writer with very little talent. Simply a laundry list of excessive spending, no character development or charm. Dry and boring and little to do with Barrinton's character. I would demand my money back if I had purchased this in a store!
