I am a huge Stone Barrington fan. As a lawyer I appreciate the realism of Stuart Woods legal eze. Typically Stone finds himself in trouble trying to help out someone he just met. This time he crosses the wrong "family" and finds himself alone in the middle of the ocean handcuffed and no life jacket. The lights to Catalina Island are miles in the distance and his buddy Dino is not there to help. One of Woods best. Keeps you on the edge the whole time. I highly recommend this book.
While listening you will forget that it is a Christian book with underlying Biblical Principles and Godly messages about the future. The book is set in the future after WWIII and the New World Government is trying to stamp out Christianity blaming religion for all the wars suffered in the past. It did not get past the reader that the main person trying to persecute the Christians that was converted to Christianity is named Paul. While the story is very futuristic and difficult to believe at times, it is well written and a nail biting thriller. This was Jenkins solo attempt after splitting with Lahaye. It is a good series and well worth listning too. It is scary to realize that things could get this bad, but it is up lifting to know that God will always give us the strength to survive for his good. The characters are wonderfully described and you feel you are on the run with them.
Woods is a great author. His character Stone Barrington is always finding trouble. This book is not as suspenseful as his others but it is still worth reading. Stone plays more detective than lawyer this time, but the story keeps you guessing until the very end. We get introduced to Aarington ( the future love of his life ) and to Vance Caulder the movie star. Woods has a way of making you root for Stone but blame him at the same time for stupid decisions. As always Woods does not let the reader down as he adds twists and turns in almost every chapter. I recommend reading this book before reading his others. If already a Stuart Woods fan this book will answer some questions about Stone Barrington's beginnings. Has some strong language and descriptive love scenes, not for children.
