APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
New York playboy and crime-solving lawyer Stone Barrington finds himself dragged into an escalating war with a deadly adversary from his past. After helping a young woman out of a bad date, Stone learns that her suitor has some powerful friends, who aren’t too pleased with Stone for their own reasons. Best-selling author Stuart Woods and co-author Brett Battles put Stone and his new lady friend in the crosshairs, cranking up the action, romance, and jet-setting adventure. We especially loved the return of the brilliant and dynamic Carly Riggs, Stone’s bold protégée, a rising legal star. Watching her develop as a character and banter with her mentor is a lot of fun—and it keeps Stone on his toes. Every book in this long-running series is a high-octane romp, and this action-filled adventure is no exception. It’ll appeal to both old fans and total newcomers.
