Publisher's Summary

Stone Barrington, an ex-cop turned Manhattan attorney and private eye, treads the thin line between the respectable practice of law and the dark side of humanity. The roller-coaster ride begins during a vacation on the Caribbean island of St. Marks, when a beautiful young woman named Allison Manning sails into the harbor on a large yacht. Allison immediately draws the attention of Minister of Justice Sir Winston Sutherland, who demands to know why her husband, a famous writer, has vanished. Stone, also immediately attracted to the case, is fascinated by the evidence - but St. Marks has a very different legal system, and Sir Winston's evil motives remain unclear, leaving Stone no room for error.

Trashy--But Fun

Nice, tight little mystery set on a Caribbean Island. Replete with twisty plot and amusing characters. As always, our hero jumps in the sack with the main female character. In this case, she's the defendant. She stands trial for the murder of her rich husband aboard a yacht. With an englishy barrister, Stone defends her. Short and to the point--another trashy Stone Barrington novel.
