"The story races at a dizzying pace.... [Woods] does show a reader a good time." (Washington Post Book World)
Step One: The Perfect Murder
Sandy Kinsolving's once-glittering life hangs by a thread; his future depends on his wife's inheritance and whether or not she's about to throw him out on his ear. What he wouldn't give for a solution to his money and marriage problems.
If this were an Alfred Hitchcock movie, the solution would be obvious. Enter a stranger with wife problems of his own, who offers a violent - and mutually advantageous - proposal.
Then, in the time it takes to whisper a word, Kinsolving's normal life ends. What radiate like a mirage before him are wealth, security, and freedom. But lurking in the shadows are a brutal murder he cannot prevent and a madman who stalks his every waking moment.
"One of the smoothest writers in the pop literature biz and always a pleasure to read." (Detroit News)

I have read almost all of Stuart Woods books and now going back to the few I missed. This was a great story even without Stone Barrington . I think Tony Roberts is the best in the business.
I was pretty surprised by the simple plot line and lack of drama.
Seems like a book I would have read in Jr High. Totally predictable and unimaginative.
