    When Stone Barrington embarks on a trip to Bel-Air to check in on some business and personal concerns, he expects a relaxing break from the fast pace and mean streets of New York. But trouble never takes a vacation, and it has a way of finding Stone. A case that had seemingly been resolved has returned in full force - with lethal results. And this deadly situation makes for strange bedfellows when Stone finds himself teamed with the least likely ally…a gentleman of unique abilities, who can fly below the radar and above the law.

    So I have seen that some audio readers don't care for the Stuart Woods' Stone Barrington series. So I thought I should explain why I gave it 5 stars. I like the performance as well from Tony Roberts - he's been doing it for so long that if another narrator it wouldn't do the series justice . I give my star ratings based on the other books in the series. I don't rate it against other mysteries by ... say ... John Grisham or Michael Connolly. It is a simple nice fun series. Nothing too serious but enjoyable. This one brings back many characters all at once - and that's why I liked it.

    Holy crap! This book kept me on the edge of my seat! I couldn't put the audio down. I kept finding reasons to keep listening. It was that good! Think this will have to be on my top 10 of all creepy books published!

    Stone Barrington is called to Bel-Air to oversee an exclusive event that will gather the top echelons of the beau monde: Hollywood starlets, socialites, politicos, billionaires from overseas. It’s a task in which Stone has a personal stake, and one that is made all the more pleasurable - though somewhat more complicated - with the arrivals of two beautiful women with whom he’s intimately acquainted. But the grand occasion has also attracted a dangerous criminal group with sinister plans....

    Story

    I love everything Stone Barrington. I am a fan of the series and have gotten others to read/listen to the series. But this one was just not as good as the others. Instantly it was predictable and Stone and Dino were barely in the book. It was a book about everyone else in Stone's life but him. He was the sub-character in his own series.

    I believe that you could skip this book and go straight to #26 without missing anything!

    When Ms. Marshall is reading this book I felt like I was sitting right next to just listening to her speak about her family and her life. Her voice carries all the compassion and love that she has for her family and especially her mother. Her performance is brilliant!

    STOP. You should not have touched this flyer with your bare hands. NO, don't put it down. It's too late. They're watching you. My name is David Wong. My best friend is John. Those names are fake. You might want to change yours. You may not want to know about the things you'll read on these pages, about the sauce, about Korrok, about the invasion, and the future. But it's too late. You touched the book. You're in the game. You're under the eye. The only defense is knowledge. You need to read this book, to the end. Even the part with the bratwurst. Why?

    Honestly, I just think that this book was written for a whole different age group or genre. I get the horror and the comedy parts. But overall, I just kept getting lost from horror jump to horror jump. Nothing seriously against the book, I bought the book because so many people gave it 4 to 5 stars. So I thought, why not try something different??? Well ... it way different than I like. Some call it a thriller .... um ... I just didn't get that from the writing. Also, some said that they just couldn't put the book down. Well, trust me, I did. I made to the end and still walked off with the thinking of "huh?"

    Here's my recommendation to future listeners of this book ... read all the comments. If it's your cup of tea, get it! If not, keep looking.

    Nothing against the writer or the listener, it just wasn't for me. And that's cool ...

    Poppy Wyatt has never felt luckier. She is about to marry her ideal man, Magnus Tavish, but in one afternoon her “happily ever after” begins to fall apart. Not only has she lost her engagement ring in a hotel fire drill but in the panic that follows, her phone is stolen. As she paces shakily around the lobby, she spots an abandoned phone in a trash can. Finders keepers! Now she can leave a number for the hotel to contact her when they find her ring. Perfect! Well, perfect except that the phone’s owner, businessman Sam Roxton, doesn’t agree.

    The antics and characters that are in this book are pure Sophie Kinsella. The quirkiness and resourcefulness of Poppy is only something that Sophie Kinsella could dream up! If you are a fan of Ms Kinsella's earlier works, like Can You Keep a Secret? and The Undomestic Goddess, then you will love love love this book!
