Publisher's Summary

A brand-new Stone Barrington novel from the perennially entertaining New York Times best-selling author.

It seems like just another quiet night at Elaine's. Stone Barrington and his former cop partner, Dino, are enjoying some pasta when in walks former client and all around sad sack Herbie Fisher...with a briefcase containing $14 million in cash.

Herbie claims to have won the money on a lucky lotto ticket, but he also says he needs a lawyer-and after a single gunshot breaks the window above his head and sends diners scrambling, Stone and Dino suspect Herbie might need a bodyguard and a private investigator, too.

More mayhem? Listen to all of our Stone Barrington mysteries.

Series that has lost it's appeal

The narrator really does a poor job with Dino's and the English ladies voices. I enjoyed this series for a while but it has gotten old. The books are very short and the plots are not what they were. This is a case of an author milking his past success. Even at $9.95, I feel I wasted my money. I think I've cured myself of Stuart Woods.

To be continued...

I am a huge fan of the Stone Barrington novels and this one does not dissappoint. As with all the books in this series, there is always another novel with some repeat characters and interwoven story lines. My only reason for not giving this book 5 stars is because this is yet another in a whole series of books from the last year that seems to not end and require the purchase of a to-be-continued book.

Tony Roberts does yet another bang up job in the narration and there are more storylines and characters in one book than normal. If you are a Herbie Fisher (sp?) fan, then you will get your fill in this book as he is crazy as ever and adds the comic relief to what could be considered a darker Stone book than normal.

Downhill

What is happening to Stuart Woods. Used to really enjoy his books but each new one has been less interesting than the one before. The plot is poor, Stone Barrington seems to only be interested in sex and he is not picky, any female will do. Please, Stuart Woods try to get back to writing exciting thrillers again! This book is so bad it is not worth listening to.

Unlikely Hero

I laughed outloud when the unlikely hero, usually never does anything right, finally does. Enjoyed it greatly.

Stone Barrington is the guy I love to hate

I just keep reading even though he's a mysoginist shallow pig. And I really wish someone would replace the narrator. he's just so horrendously bad at accents. everyone sounds vaguely Russian.

Sorry,

I was raised at if I don't have anything good to say I shouldn't say anything at all so I'll just leave it at that.

exciting storyline

We get to see more of Herbie Fisher. MI 6 plays a fascinating part in the intrigue and turn of events. Great characters!

Grrrrrrrreat

One of the better Stone Barrington novels by Stuart Woods. Recurring characters fit into their previous rolls and Stone's relationships with women were as predictable as ever.
