Stone Barrington finds intrigue abroad in the sensational new thriller by the New York Times best-selling author.
Stone Barrington is no stranger to schemes and deceptions of all stripes - as an attorney for the premier white-shoe law firm Woodman & Weld, he’s seen more than his share. But when he travels to Europe under highly unusual circumstances, Stone finds himself at the center of a mystery that is, even by his standards, most peculiar. Two unexpected invitations may be the first clues in an intricate puzzle Stone must unravel to learn the truth...a puzzle that will lead him deep into the rarefied world of European ultrawealth and privilege, where billionaires rub elbows with spooks, insider knowledge is traded at a high premium, and murder is never too high a price to pay for a desired end. It soon becomes clear that beneath the bright lights of Europe lurks a shadowy underworld...and its only rule is deadly ambition.

Tony Roberts makes this series. He is the voice of Stone and everyone else.
Yes I would recommend this to a friend. As usual, this is a light read/listen. I usually listen to this series of books while I sew..
He is fabulous in his narration. The characters each have their own personality that you instantly recognize as soon as you hear them "talk". Mr. Roberts is Stone.
No, this series of books is very light and is not something that keeps you on the edge of your seat.
I love this series of books, they are easy to listen and characters are great. What made the listening less than a five star review was I got the feeling that the story was written as the author was writing the story. There was thing that popped up, seemed important, and was dropped shortly afterwards with no explanation of why it was included and why it was dropped. That bothered me a great deal.
Lovers of Stone will be happy, I was. Kind of the usual stuff for stone, just as expected. Not much Dino in this book. Stone under threat from and chasing women around Europe.
I think the reader is perfect for this series and think it's great he has been the reader for all the books.
No. The narration was almost enough to ruin the listen.
All New York characters other than Stone B were the same and ridiculously over played.
Love books, what else can I say.
I wish the story was better.
I'll switch to another writer before coming back to Woods.
Mr. Roberts is always great. Love the narration, you could listen to him read the phone book.
Yea, question my loyalty to Woods.
I seem to remember liking Stuart Woods. I guess I am getting tired of everyone surviving one impossible situation after another.
Some sort of a realistic ending
Most of the ending.
I am not a writer and I am sure he knows much better than I and I am sure he has an audience that dies for his style. Don't know if I will try another. Hmmm. Wonder how many of his I have already listened to?
I always enjoy the Stone Barrington stories.
This one was "just OK," not the best in the series but still readable. Good escape reading.
I think Tony Roberts is the voice of Stone Barrington, I can't imagine the audible series without him.
Yes ... I would read another Stuart Woods book based on past performance. Not this book.
This book hasn't increased my nterest. If this was the first book I read of Stuart Woods ... I wouldn't read another one.
It seems like Stuart Woods was just trying to put out another book. This definitely was not one of his best works. I was very very disappointed.
Say something about yourself!
The story was all over the map. Not enough DINO! Not enough about New York and their favorite hangouts. Too many things going on all at once. Stone is getting a little long in the tooth to be flitting from women to women. Settle down already! However I'll be waiting for the next chapter in the Stone Barrington series. I'm hooked on Stone and Tony Roberts.
I've read all the Stone Barrington series and enjoyed them in the past. As time goes on the storyline is getting less and less. Not worth the money we have to pay for such a short story and no story... I've been hoping Mr. Woods would spend more time w/the stories.
Going to return the book and get something else worth the monthy fee I pay for Audible. Sorry...
Love the characters in the Barrington books, love the narrator, but do get very tired of Woods living out his sexual fantasies through Stone. I have read most of the Stone Barrington books and enjoy them. Roberts gives the characters so much personality. The constant irresponsible hopping in and out of bed annoys me and I keep thinking I won't read another one.
