When crime hits Manhattan’s rarefied circles, Stone Barrington finds himself in the bull’s-eye in this #1 New York Times bestseller.
Stone Barrington seems to have a knack for being in the wrong place at the wrong time. When Manhattan’s elite are beset by a series of clever crimes—and Stone is a material witness—he and his former partner Dino Bacchetti find themselves drawn into the world of high-end security and fraud, where insider knowledge and access are limited to a privileged few, and the wealthy are made vulnerable by the very systems meant to keep them safe. As Stone and Dino delve deeper into their investigation, they learn that the mastermind behind the incidents may have some intimate ties to Stone...and that the biggest heist is still to come.
For a while now, Broadway and film actor Roberts has brightened Woods's adventures of lawyer-about-town Stone Barrington with a breezy narration that also carries more than a fair amount of charm. It's almost magical the way his interpretation of Stone (who, as Woods frequently mentions, drives classic cars, dines regularly at the Four Seasons, and owns art worth millions) sound like a regular Joe. His best pal, Dino, the new NYPD chief of detectives, is even more down-to-earth a tough guy whom Roberts voices with growly good humor. The president of the United States and First Lady, Stone's close friends, are made to sound like a witty and droll couple. In this pleasantly meandering series addition, POTUS's term is coming to an end and Ms. POTUS decides to throw her chapeaux into the ring. But that's just one thread that hangs from Stone's much too hasty reaction to the curiosity of the title. In any case, the versatile Roberts makes even the most extraneous portions of the novel seem vitally interesting. A Putnam hardcover.
The best Stone Barrington novel in some time. Attorney Barrington is embroiled in a great new mystery with more twists and turns than any in recent memory. If you enjoy a good mystery you should not miss this one. Woods is always good but recently his books have strayed a bit
away from his primary characters. That changes with this book.
Woods is back at his best with this story that has a bit of everything including some interesting carnal pursuits that lend the book it's title. Do not miss this book.
Another great Stuart Woods whodunit. Five stars all the way.
