Stone Barrington enters the cutthroat fray of politics in the stunning thriller from the New York Times best-selling author.
Stone Barrington has traveled to Los Angeles for the Democratic National Convention and finds that the political scene has been shaken up. First Lady Katherine Rule Lee is running for the party nomination, a loyal senator has died and left her seat vacant, and the Secret Service has received a credible threat toward Kate. It will take all of Stone's discretion and powers of persuasion to help arrange things for a desirable outcome.

The book has very little real substance. If it were an authors first work it would only be published by the author.
If he were to get back to his crime series roots.
Tony Roberts always give a great performance.
I was a major dissapointment
If you enjoy reading thin stories about limousine liberals, this is the book for you.
Mr. Woods always does a good job with his wealthy characters but this time it's just too much. Too Political, too unbelievable, too bizarre. I'm a Stuart Woods fan but this time it appears he is no fan of his readers. Save your money and your credit.
A contrived plot with shallow characters. A rambling story line filled with irrelevant details. Clearly this author is paid by the number of words/pages he can fill. Not worth the listen, let alone the read.
Get back to writing about crime and not politics
Yes, if this author continues writing about the greatness of the Democratic party
Great performance as always
I always wait with eager anticipation for the new Stone Barrington novel, it is like a gift every time I pressed play. This one was a box of socks and a neck tie. I don't know if Stone has grown too big and rich for me to relate to, or if it was the lack of tension, I just did not care what happened in this book. Stone used to be an exciting guy, this had all the action of a senate hearing on making blueberry waffles the official breakfast offering in the Capital Hill dining room. We went through all the motions, the characters that we love and hate were there, but it just fell flat. I can say that I hope this is the build up to something explosive - maybe it's just the first offering and the socks and tie will match the beautifully tailored suit in the next installment. Keep swinging Mr. Woods and I will keep reading! On a side note the performance was fantastic as always...
Yes of course! I really enjoy his books! (however I could do with out the political commentary)
A certain sarcasm and whit that maybe lost in the books
Oh God no - please leave it alone
This is my first review - don't know if I wold do another
It was all politics and no plot! I don't care what side of the aisle you are on, you will not like this book. I have listened to every Stone Barrington book and this one is the last one.
I liked Tony Robert's performance - it is the author that has lost his ability to write.
He is the redeeming factor.
This series is becoming a factory story series. Less excitement, and a vehicle for publishing a book a year. The depth of the earlier books in the series is lacking.
Less liberal bias. Less promotion for female presodential candidate(Guess who?)
No real direction to plot.
Sorry I bought it.
The story is very thin. The tension is not compelling. They should have skipped this story altogether. I do not understand how this moves Stone's story forward. Ann is no Arrington and other than her connection to Kate, do not see the attraction.
A best seller - The Good Girl
Did not have a favorite.
Some bad guys
Self serving to his wealth.
Tony is a master now and forever.
A downward trend is evident. Stone needs to go bankrupt.
I have enjoyed Stone and Dino for a very long time. The character just got too rich to identify with. I do not enjoy writing this. I just gotta say how I feel.
