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.
From the high-stakes poker tables of Las Vegas to California's lush beachside resorts, the trail of disguise, subterfuge, and murder leads to a shocking conclusion.

I have always enjoyed this series and this was better than the last two. But it is becoming a little annoying to have everything always perfect. The kids are perfect. The women are perfect. Stone is perfect. Even real rich people aren't this perfect. I'd love to see the old Stone again.....the non rich one on the edge of the society page. Accepted by the beautiful people without actually being one of them. Tony Roberts was excellent as usual. Good to see Teddy back. I always liked that character. But this time even Teddy was perfect!
Say something about yourself!
One of the better Stuart Woods(Stone Barrington) efforts. He left the bedroom scenes up to our imaginations for which I am grateful. He writes fun ,entertaining detective stories and Tony Roberts is a brilliant narrator. I must admit I would enjoy more New York and more Gino. If some of you were disappointed in the ("hack writing") your words, not mine, I suggest you try a different genre. Perhaps the writings of Tolstoy or Dostoyevsky. I have enjoyed these authors as well. With Stuart Woods you know in advance you are in for entertaining escapism. No more,no less. Pick your favorite genre and enjoy!
Fool me three times and I'm done. after years of loving this series I gave it one more shot after last two duds. mistake. Either someone else is now writing the books, or someone else SHOULD be. No charm, no point, and embarrassing focus on conspicuous consumption of jets, hangars, luxury goods that made me cringe. Tragic whimper of an end to a once beloved series. Keep your happy memories of early Stone Barrington. (Tony Roberts' narration wonderful as always - is he ageless?? Which just made me sadder) a cynical return to a now-dry well...
This book is one of the best Stuart Woods has written.
There were several different stories going on at the same time.
How to make a movie and diversity at the same time.
This was the best Stone Barrington I have listened to in awhile. The last have seem fairly absurd with the plot lines. Not that this one isn't a bit far-fetched at times, but the reintroduction of Teddy Fay made the intrigue more engaging.
