Stone Barrington gains an adversary that he can't seem to shake in the electrifying new adventure from the number-one New York Times best-selling author.
Stone Barrington's latest lady friend is full of surprises, both good and ill. A sensual woman with unexpected desires, Stone finds her revelations in the boudoir extremely agreeable. But on the other hand, she also has some unfinished business with a temperamental man who believes Stone is an intolerable obstacle in the way of his goals.
In a cat-and-mouse game that trails from sun-drenched Bel-Air to a peaceful European estate and gorgeous Santa Fe, Stone and his friend remain just one step ahead of their opponent. But their pursuer is not a man who can stand to be thwarted, and tensions are mounting...and may soon reach the boiling point.

I haven't read Mr. Woods' Barrington books in awhile but at some point they have changed from detective mystery to cheesy romance. Very disappointing story line. Summary: Stone Barrington travels to fabulous locations, spends endless piles of money, has sex with beautiful women, is disappointed by one of said woman, and flies his private jet home where he is treated to a proper welcome by his dog (and butler, of course).
I love to read. In high school I read a book a night; I was too exhausted to write the book reports!
The sex is getting a little kinky. The story was inane and the characters implausible.
Listened to 2 hours and had enough, used to enjoy the story line of a lawyer and a cop but now way out on left field. And describing a 3 way relationship in the bedroom.....come on Woods someone must be writing for you. Stone Barrington used to be a favorite of mine. Sure glad Audible allows returns for books like this.
I have thoroughly enjoyed the previous
28 Stone Barrington books I have heard on Audible. This was by far the poorest ! Stone has become a little unbelievable as a character. In the past a weak or obvious plot could be overcome by Stone!s persona. This is no longer true.
I will look forward to the next book, even though I am starting to believe
Stuart Woods best work is behind him.
But, always a fan, and grateful for all
his previous work.
What works for some doesn't always work with everyone. Maybe I am looking for the type of storylines that established this series and have since disappeared.
