Stone Barrington’s newest client does not seem the type to bring mayhem in his wake. A polite, well-deported gentleman, he comes to Stone seeking legal expertise on an unusual - and potentially lucrative - dilemma. Stone points him in the right direction and sends him on his way, but it’s soon clear Stone hasn’t seen the end of the case. Several people are keenly interested in this gentleman’s activities and how they may relate to a long-ago crime...and some of them will stop at nothing to find the information they desire.
On a hunt that leads from Florida’s tropical beaches to the posh vacation homes of the Northeast, Stone finds himself walking a tightrope between ambitious authorities and seedy lowlifes who all have the same prize in their sights. In this cutthroat contest of wills, it’s winner-takes-all...and Stone will need every bit of his cunning and resourcefulness to be the last man standing.

Bad, naive, predictable, arrogant. That's before Herb Fisher, Stuart Wods's alter ego shows up,,,down hill from there. Wish I skipped this one.
I am a huge Stuart Woods fan, but to enjoy this book one needs to suspend common sense. Dino and Stone, the two protagonists, are smart characters as a rule. The perp was so obvious from the beginning that I kept thinking there would be an unforeseen twist . . . . but no. If you're willing to listen to this book for pure escapism, you may not have the issues that I do. But if you enjoy trying to solve a mystery - forget about it.
If you read these books, you know that many of the stories are very similar. This was, on the cusp, of being refreshingly different.
Great story, good flow
The ending with the twist at the airport
I always enjoy Tony's narration of Stuart Woods Books.
Currently a local truck driver who has hours to listen to my audio books. I am hooked, some of my fellow drivers enjoy them also
Yes, in a year or so
I always enjoy Stone and his side kicks
I liked too many to list a great story
Yes, both laugh and cried good story
Keep up the good work Mr Woods Tony is also a great asset to the books story
Yes. It isn't rocket science, but good of kind and entertaining. So Stone is not totally brilliant at all times. That is human nature. All's well that ends well.
I read some negative reviews on this book before buying it to listen to. I must disagree with those reviews as I found this to be just what I expect for Stone from the author. I found it to be the usual jaunt of misadventures, sex, and conspicuous consumption I have come to expect and look forward to. The characters are quite likable and I find the narrator wonderful for the tone of this series.
