Stone Barrington returns in the new edge-of-your-seat thriller from the number-one New York Times best-selling author.
When he's apprised at the last minute of a mandatory meeting abroad, Stone Barrington rushes off to Europe for a whirlwind tour of business and, of course, pleasure. But from the start the trip seems to be cursed, plagued by suspicious "accidents" and unfortunate events, and some of Stone's plans go up in flames - literally.
Not a believer in coincidence, Stone sets out to learn the true source of his curious misfortune and finds that what appeared to be bad luck may, in fact, have been a warning. From the chic streets of Paris to the majestic Italian coast, Stone is pursued from all sides...but when the tables turn, the hunted may become the hunter....

Mediocre. Typical Stone Barrington story. We love Stone, but these story lines require suspending disbelief. Most of the recent books sound like Stuart Woods or someone wrote them in an hour. Would like to see improved plots and better character development like some of the earlier books. MJ
I think when the next one if this series comes out, I'll read it the old fashioned way. Roberts has difficulty conveying any sort of deep emotion vocally. A tragedy occurs to someone near Stone because of their involvement with him and he sounds like it's just a minor inconvenience. He also makes Dino sound like a toad, not attractive at all. The story is a REALLY LIGHT read. Good for the beach or something else where you're just trying to fill time enjoyably. All in all I'd say to skip this one on Audible and maybe buy it when it goes on sale in paperback.
The content was as expected...entertaining and amusing. The narration was atrocious, I suspect the director just gave up half way through. The accents change constantly and disappear entirely to occasionally return for a few sentences. The voices of Dino (NYC police commissioner) and CIA station chiefs are guttural grunts and wheezes sounding like uneducated nincompoops. And since when has the Director of the CIA had an English accent? So bad it distracted from the content
I love to read. In high school I read a book a night; I was too exhausted to write the book reports!
This is one of Woods' better books. Lots of action. Can't wait for the sequel!
One of the best storylines in the series. They drew enough from the past and added new twists and surprises to hold ones interest to the end. I hope future writings in this series follows with the same enjoyable experience and a very clever ending scene.
I feel cheated to have bought a title that was supposed to be in the suspense genre, that turned out to be boring with a poor plot. I can't even see the plot... This title isn't worth listening to.
