Stone Barrington returns in the thrilling new novel from the New York Times best-selling author.
After a productive trip to Bel-Air, Stone Barrington is back in Manhattan - and back in his element, ready to return to the world of deluxe fine dining and elegant high society that New York does best.
But then an unexpected visit from his friend and periodic lover, CIA assistant director Holly Barker, draws Stone into a dangerous game of murder and vengeance, against an enemy with plans bigger than they could ever imagine....

Just finished this listen on the way home from work Friday. Went back on line to down load a couple of the S.B. series I haven't listened to yet. Read the reviews by many, pretty surprised by the feedback. For those who listen to a lot of books, Tony does one of the best jobs of any of the narraters I listen to. Seperation of the characters is difficult, Tony does a great job with this. As far as the Barrington series go, I listen because they are fun, only slightly racy and entertaining. Maybe not great literature, but they can make you laugh, keep you in some suspense and bring you in to like the characters. What more should you ask for in a series meant to entertain, not think.
I Love the Entire Stone Barrington Series
I love how he separates the characters voices. I can appreciate a Narrator who does this because I have been listening to a lot of audio books lately and he is the only one who does a great job at this. For those of you who disagree (because I've been surprised by how many people dislike Roberts) Please suggest good Narrators so that I can listen to those books for comparison. Without that, Tony Roberts is the best I have heard.
This series is good, its entertaining fiction that does what a good book should do. Take me away from reality.

I always enjoy Stuart Woods books, until now. This book is slow. No feeling and it was hard to remember who was who. Did he run out of ideas? Should have stopped at book 24.
The series has shown growth and depth. The author has been able to keep my attention for the entire series, when is the next book coming
I guess you can compare to each book of the series..they have grown with each new book. Great job Stuart Woods
no one moment..the whole book
the series says it all..keep writing them
And Buffalo George
I listened to this book and immediately knew that I'd missed a nuclear event in Los Angeles and this plot depends upon that one. So, it wasn't much fun. Stone doesn't do well as a character with all the national players and we missed Dino until the very end. And, apparently, Elaine has gone to the happy cook's place. I'll have to double back and see other books to catch up on Stone's life.
No fan of the author who has read or listened to all Stone Barrington titles.
Sure--more Stone Barrington
Stuart Woods has lost his way. What made his storys good was the N.Y. life with Stone and Dino. Chasing terrorists is for some other author.
Somewhat formulaick but after so many Stone Barrington stories the characters seem like family to me. Tony does a fantastic job with the voices as well. I keep looking forward to the next book.
