    London, 1940: Winston Churchill has just been sworn in, war rages across the Channel, and the threat of a Blitz looms larger by the day. But none of this deters Maggie Hope. She graduated at the top of her college class and possesses all the skills of the finest minds in British intelligence, but her gender qualifies her only to be the newest typist at No. 10 Downing Street. Her indefatigable spirit and gifts for codebreaking, though, rival those of even the highest men in government, and Maggie finds that working for the prime minister affords her a level of clearance she could never have imagined....

The military's digital photography software that captures one's aura - just like Abby can - sits in a drone aircraft that's been stolen. It's a major breach in security, as every country's leader can be identified by their aura....

    A new addition to the New York Times best-selling Stone Barrington series. After an eventful trip to Bel-Air and a reunion with his sophisticated (and very wealthy) former love, Arrington Calder, Stone Barrington is back in New York, and he's looking to stay closer to home and cash in on his partnership at Woodman & Weld. But Arrington has other plans for Stone... including introducing him to the child he fathered many years ago.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Yes, I felt that it was time well spent because the book filled in gaps.


    If you’ve listened to books by Stuart Woods before, how does this one compare?

    It wasn't as exciting as some of his other titles, but it was Stone. Parts of it bothered me because I hated what happened to Arrington. But the book was still worth listening to.


    What about Tony Roberts’s performance did you like?

    The way that he changes his voice and brings the characters to life.


    Did Son of Stone inspire you to do anything?

    No
