This is okay for a Sunday afternoon read but it is not worth the current B&N cost. A fine author who has done much better work than this one. If you're interested, wait for it to become a $5 book.

I guess the author has hit a wall with the Stone Barrington series. The early books were easy to read, but were entertaining and engaging. You didn't want to put them down. I kept wanting to put this one down and not pick it back up again. First, nothing happens until almost 80 pages into a 237 book. By that I mean Stone wanders around and you think some plot line is developing, but it never does. Then when things appear to start happening his girlfriend is murdered. You would think that would develop a plot line, but the subject is dropped and never ties into the story. What is ridiculous is soon after her murder Stone takes up with another woman and even takes her to his house in Maine where he had just spent the weekend with the woman who was killed a few days later. And this isn't the only other plot line that never develops. The author leaves a number of issues open and unresolved. The book just ends that way. Second, Woods fills the book with old retreads from previous Barrington novels. We once again deal with Lance Cabot, Holly Barker, Herbie Fisher, Tiffany (another former girlfriend and Federal prosecutor) and of course Dino and Bill Eggers. The characters have been long worn out and the plot line(s) undeveloped, never developed or open at the end. It seems like the author had several different ideas for a book and couldn't decide which one he liked best so he just threw them all into this one novel, but then never developed any of the ideas. After reading this hugely disappointing effort I think I'll take a break from reading any future offerings from Stuart Woods.

In Manhattan attorney Stone Barrington goes to dine at his usual spot Elaine's with his former NYPD partner Dino Bachetti and his boss Bill Eggers managing partner at Woodman & Weld law firm arrives. His efforts leads to Bill giving Stone a check for one million dollars for bringing in a new client Strategic Services whose founder Hackett was murdered by British Intel agents in Maine with Barrington at his side. Apparently Stone's undercover work with British MI6 has brought in the new customer while Eggers says he may nominate Stone for a full partnership next year. The CIA asks Stone to help escort from Spain to the States fugitive Erwin Gelbhardt. Stone becomes Gelbhardt's lawyer. He offers a deal with the Feds; in exchange for a lesser or no sentencing, his client will reveal where Osama bin Laden hides. Then there is Freeman of Strategic Services who may be running a Madoff scheme. Putting aside background plausibility that is over the top of the Empire State Building starting with ignoring the on-line media presence, fans of the Barrington saga will enjoy his latest entry. Being "of counsel" he works cases for the company in which W&W do not want the DNA trail leading back to them and this time has a couple of deadly doozies. Fans will enjoy Stone's version of a legal thriller as the action never slows from the start with M16 in the background to the finish with the FBI in the forefront. Harriet Klausner
