Stone Barrington is back in the extraordinary new adventure from New York Times best-selling author Stuart Woods.
Stone Barrington seems to have a knack for being in the wrong place at the wrong time. When Manhattan’s elite are beset by a series of clever crimes - and Stone is a material witness - he and his former partner Dino Bacchetti find themselves drawn into the world of high-end security and fraud, where insider knowledge and access are limited to a privileged few, and the wealthy are made vulnerable by the very systems meant to keep them safe. As Stone and Dino delve deeper into their investigation, they learn that the mastermind behind the incidents may have some intimate ties to Stone...and that the biggest heist is still to come.

I normally like books by Stuart Woods, but this is the most pretentious fluff I have ever heard. Narrator reads so slowly, I felt like fast-forwarding. It was so dull.
Dialog was monotone, lack of enthusiasm and slowness. Maybe it was story but very lackluster.
All of them including Stone Barrington in this novel.
There was too much nonsensical dialogue and the plot was minimal.
Write interesting mysteries instead of a written soap opera.
Will not purchase any future Stone Barrington books. Stuart Woods has lost me.
A fresh compelling storyline, some new and interesting characters...
The simplistic and superficial relationships.
After listening to most of them, I've had enough.
The writing and story line were boring banal hustler like droning on and on
It was the material or lack there of.
I would wait till others have rated it.
It is extremely dull not at all like so many of the excellent Stuart Woods Stories of Stone Barrington. It appears as if he collected a bunch of rejected story lines and pasted them together,
Yes his performance is good.
The entire book is not worthy of the trash can.
Yes. The later (current) Stone Barrington Books are not too deep. A decent, albeit always unbelievable plot, leads to a quick and satisfying conclusion.
My memory of this book, is actually my only negative comment. Tony Roberts' choice of the voice for the Detective "Dino" - sounds like a drunk Jackie Gleason. The voice does not match my imagining of the character.
Mr. Roberts, with one exception, brings good, and mostly slight, vocal intonations to each character...so that (except for the character of "Dino") no one sounds too much like a cartoon.
A lawyer, his loves, and trouble.
Once you get through a somewhat cheesy beginning with a story line where everything always falls into place there is a pretty good story here. Tony Roberts has the ability to make the making of bread interesting.
The ending was very much a disappointment as it seemed to abruptly end and in a way diminish all that you have listened too. We know most of the bad guys get caught at the end but it is the way that they get caught which can give you a positive or negative experience to the entire story. This ending was one of the poorer ones.
Stuart Woods is a Master Story Teller who can always keep me extremely entertained. Anthony Roberts has the ability to tell a story in a way that keeps me looking for more Anthony&Stuart Stone Stories.
This is most likely the last stone book for me . Weak plot, weak story. Tired of the cross over with the Lees, AND of course ever Woman he meets wants HIM
It appears that MR Woods he running out of stories.
Tony Roberts performance is the best thing about this book
