Stone Barrington faces down danger on all sides in the latest thriller from perennial fan favorite Stuart Woods.
Stone Barrington is settling in for a stretch in New York when he receives news that demands immediate action. An old family matter has unexpectedly resurfaced, and Stone must decamp to the craggy shores of Maine to address the issue head-on. He pits himself against two psychopathic relatives, twins Eben and Enos Stone, who have been paroled from prison in Maine.
There, Stone finds that a dual-pronged threat is hiding in plain sight among the stately houses and exclusive coastal clubs, and the incursion isn’t easily rebuffed. These enemies have friends in high places, funds to spare, and a score to settle with Stone . . . and only the cleverest plot will draw them out into the open. From luxuriously renovated homes to the choppy ocean waters, the pursuit can only lead to an explosive end. In the book, Stone’s latest love interest and a Yale Law School student, whose boyfriend the twins recently murdered, concoct a plan to take these two evil masterminds down.
