Someone wants to crash Stone Barrington’s party in this New York Times bestseller in Stuart Woods’s thrilling series.
Stone Barrington is in Bel-Air, overseeing the grand opening of the ultra-luxe hotel, The Arrington, built on the grounds of the mansion belonging to his late wife, Arrington Carter.
The star-studded gala will be attended by socialites, royalty, and billionaires from overseas...and according to phone conversations intercepted by the NSA, it may also have attracted the attention of international terrorists. To ensure the safety of his guests—and the city of Los Angeles—Stone may have to call in a few favors from his friends at the CIA...
Bestseller Woods s 50th novel, the 24th entry in his Stone Barrington series (Unnatural Acts, etc.), boasts an all-star lineup, from series fixtures such as Lt. Dino Bacchetti and lawyer Herbie Fisher to Woods s other series leads, notably U.S. president Will Lee and Holly Barker of the CIA. The event that brings everyone together is the opening of the Arrington, the palatial Bel-Air hotel named for Stone s late wife, Arrington Carter. The glittering assembly of guests, including Lee and the Mexican president, makes the affair a prime terrorist target. Hints of a clever plan for a horrific attack reach members of various security agencies, who scramble to prevent it. Meanwhile, Stone and his guests try to enjoy the opulent setting with their usual accompaniments of good food, good drink, and good sex. Woods expertly mixes familiar ingredients to produce an intoxicating cocktail that goes down easily.
Customer ReviewsSee All
I have read all of Mr. Woods books over the years. This one reminds me of his efforts in his prime. Very engaging....quality writing. The last three or four books prior to this one were disappointing and I was ready to retire this author from my must read list.....but he has returned with a bang. Looking forward to many more years of Stuart Woods at his best.
Another fairly entertaining book
Nothing new or original about this, but as always a good lite read.
I think Woods is under time constraints or goofs off too much because the character depth he had in earlier books is dissolving in each of the past several books.
One of Stuart Woods best! Action, great new & old characters, exciting ending!
