Publisher's Summary

Stone Barrington is back and better than ever in the newest thriller from the number-one New York Times best-selling author.

Stone Barrington's newest client seems to be a magnet for trouble. A poised lady of considerable wealth, she's looking for help discouraging the attentions of a tenacious gentleman. But no sooner does Stone fend off the party in question than his client becomes involved in two lethal crimes.

With suspects aplenty, Stone must probe deep into his client's life to find the truth, and he discovers that the heart of the mystery may be a famous missing piece of history, a stunningly beautiful vestige of a bygone era. It's a piece with a long and storied past and untold value...the kind of relic someone might kill to obtain.

Among the upper crust, nearly everyone has buried a skeleton or two, and it will take all of Stone's investigative powers to determine whose secrets are harmless - and whose are deadly.

    "Worst one ever."

    Woods has run out of airspeed, altitude and, most of all, ideas. This installment is so far away for the original writings I can't believe it's the same author. More of a fantasy than a novel.

    "Totally disappointed."

    This book was a waste of time and money. I have listened to 20 or more Stone Barrington novels and this on was written with reckless abandon.

    "never disappointed"

    As always, very well narrated. Alot of facts/details are thrown at the reader to make you have second thoughts of the guilty party. Most importantly, Stone becomes more idolistic in each book.

    "Stuart keeps the same themes"

    I liked it, but it does get wordy. His books seem to be written with a template. Still a fast read.

    "Ghost written nonsense for the elderly"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I could enjoy listening to Tony Roberts read the phone book. This is a close second. I like the comfort and familiarity of Stuart Woods' Stone Barrington books. I don't mind the shopping at Ralph Lauren, Sea Island Cotton Shirts, description of cars, etc. I am baffled by the enthusiasm for: buffet dinners, adjustable beds, eating in bed and dumb new addition of a dog named Bob who goes to restaurants. NO NO NO.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    10% Happier


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    It is almost exactly like the other books, except the plot was quite boring. I forgot I had 15 minutes left on the book. Eh.


    Any additional comments?

    Time for a new ghost writer.
