APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
High-level intrigue meets white-knuckle action in this intense political thriller from authors Stuart Woods and Parnell Hall. Stone Barrington, star of Woods’ long-running action series, has faced many perilous situations, but when he learns of the kidnapping of a prominent congressman’s daughter, he knows he needs to bring in someone with an entirely unique skill set. Luckily, Stone knows just the person for the job—the charming but ruthless ex-CIA covert operator and master of disguise Teddy Fay. The first book in this spinoff series has everything an action fan dreams of, including high-speed chases, devious assassins, hard-hitting fight scenes, and a hero who will do whatever it takes to save the day. With its thrill-a-minute style and compelling characters, if you love action, Smooth Operator is poised to become your new favorite.
Bestseller Woods (Dishonorable Intentions) teams with Edgar-finalist Hall (A Fool for a Client) on this testosterone-fueled thriller, which features recurring character Teddy Fay, an ex-CIA agent and master of disguise, who first appeared as a villain in 2003's Capital Crimes. New York lawyer Stone Barrington is cruising on his yacht on the Hudson River when he receives an urgent summons to attend a state dinner in Washington, D.C. During the dinner, Stone is called away to a secret meeting with President Kate Lee, a Democrat, and Congressman Charles Blaine, a Republican. Blaine's college-age daughter, Karen, has been kidnapped by unknown parties who are threatening to kill Karen unless Blaine, the Speaker of the House, is able to pass a bill providing medical benefits for wounded veterans that his party opposes. Stone has someone in mind to handle this sensitive crisis, though for security reasons he won't tell the president the person's name Teddy. Fans are sure to welcome this action-packed start to a separate series within the larger Stone Barrington story arc.
First Stuart Woods Book
A fine read.
Not up to par
Series is going downhill fast
Woods is running out of material and the storylines are so far fetched it ruins the read
