Stone Barrington is back and better than ever in the astonishing new thriller from New York Times best seller Stuart Woods.
Stone Barrington has returned to Paris to attend to some business concerns, and finds himself embroiled in high-stakes trouble on both sides of the pond. An old enemy is still in hot pursuit, and this time he might have a powerful local resource on his side: a gentleman with his own ax to grind against Stone. And back in the United States, the swirling rumor mill threatens to derail a project of vital importance not just to Stone but to the nation. Though Stone is no stranger to peril, never before has he faced threats from so many directions at once.

Too much sex and not enough substance. Very weak plot and story lines. Last Stuart Woods book, Cut and Thrust was one of his better novels. Maybe did not spend much time cranking this one out.
Have read every Stuart Woods book. This was the weakest one.
You can't get a better reader/narrator than Tony Roberts!
Love Stone Barrington and the usual characters.
Always fun to feel like I'm jet-setting with Stone and his friends, relatives, and enemies.
I can't be bothered
the main character, what a .........
what once might have been good is now simply awful
Audible started me reading fiction again. What a treat to have professional actors narrating a book I may not have had the time to "read".
Too many love starved women fighting over him. Dumb and dumber. The sex scenes were vulgar and unnecessary Way too much political yada yada.Overall a very dull read. I have read most of the Stone Barrington books but this one was ludicrous. The last one should have warned me not to pr-order. Never again. Even Tony Roberts couldn't save this lemon.
Have a Boomerang Millenial Daughter. We like her, she likes us so, nice to have her back. Both my Husband and I are Proud USN Veterans.
Even though I do enjoy Stone's sexual high jinks, it was nice that he wasn't looking for somewhere, anywhere to put his d**k in.
Everything centered around a main story and it was more cohesive.
Can't come up with any. Stone Barrington is a unique character. I always laugh over something Dino and Stone do or say.
I'm kind of biased because l've always loved him as an actor but I must say, a couple of times, I did not think it was Tony.
Yes. I WAS PISSED OFF BY THE WAY IT ENDED!!! Mr. Woods if I ever see you in person, I'm going to give you a talkin' to!
I really enjoyed this one. It was a bit different than the other's.
Every time I listen to a Stone Barrington novel, I say "never again". I think I even returned one of them. They are preposterous. (He gets invited to spend election night in the Lincoln Bedroom, for goodness' (well) sake. One of his girlfriends is the campaign director for the First Lady, who is running to succeed her husband. He is under the protection of the CIA, sleeping with three women, flying around in a Gulfstream, and opening a hotel in Paris. You could make this up yourself. Never again.
Unbelievable event developments with no indication of what was to occur next. A definite attention holder and well read. Great book.
