Book 59 in the Stone Barrington series
In the latest thriller from perennial fan favorite Stuart Woods, Stone Barrington faces down a persistent rival. Stone Barrington must halt a nefarious plot in the newest novel from #1 New York Times-bestselling Stuart Woods.
Stone Barrington is nearing his New York City abode when he stumbles into trouble. As it turns out, a new client is in danger—and with both business and the safety of the city at stake, Stone has no choice but to get involved. He finds himself in an interesting situation when he rescues Shep Troutman, who is being beaten on the street outside his office. He intervenes and now has a new client, a very wealthy person from the sale of the family business.
It’s soon clear that a complicated scheme is being hatched, and the source remains enigmatic . . . but it’s only a matter of time before he and Stone must each show their hands. From ritzy Manhattan high-rises to the lush serenity of the Connecticut countryside, the game of cat-and-mouse can end with only one victor. We also get to see a little bit about the depth of the relationship between Holly and Stone, and maybe some hint of the future.
