Publisher's Summary

In the latest thriller from number one New York Times best-selling author Stuart Woods, Stone Barrington's newest foe has a short fuse...and it's just been lit.

Stone Barrington is enjoying a boating excursion off the Maine coast when a chance encounter leaves him somewhat the worse for wear. Always able to find the silver lining in even the unhappiest circumstances, Stone is pleased to discover that the authors of his misfortune are, in fact, members of a prestigious family who present a unique business opportunity and who require a man of Stone's skills to overcome a sticky situation of their own.

The acquaintance is fortuitous indeed, for as it turns out, Stone and his new friends have an enemy in common. He's the sort of man who prefers force to finesse and who regards any professional defeat as a personal and intolerable insult. And when Stone's sly cunning collides with his adversary's hair-trigger temper, the results are sure to be explosive.

    "Stone Barrington"

    Fans will have to listen to the continuing adventures of Stone, the luckiest man alive, except for long term relationships with women, Dino is really his longest term relationship. The episode is pretty good, lots of action, better than some of the more recent episodes. And many thanks to the publishers for keeping the same narrator for the whole series. I like the narrator, but whether you like him or not, he has become the voice of the characters in my head. I hope they never change.

    "Staggeringly boring"

    I am now convinced that Woods is no longer writing these books. The characters are without appeal, the dialogue stultifying...... and there is no sign of humor.i

    I tried and tried to finish this book. Finally at just a little over 20 minutes
    left I quit!
    I love Stuart Woods and I believe this is the first S. W. books I ever sent back.

    "Not up to par"

    Stone Barrington's next book should include a dream sequence, and when he wakes he's Stone before marriage and money. So his adventures make sense and are enjoyable to read. This is my last Mr. Woods novel.

    "Stone is the best!"

    I love how Stuart Woods keeps all the characters intertwined throughout the books like old friends. It's one big story.
    For the people who don't understand that...too bad!

    "What a Life!"

    As usual, Stone knows a lot of people and lives life large. I love living life vicariously through Stone and friends. Just the right balance on this one. Enjoyed the ride!

    "A little more loose"

    I enjoy this author's work and this novel as well.
    This one jumped a little more from storyline to storyline but all in all an enjoyable novel.

    "Old Style Detective Story"

    It seems like this book was written for the same audience that enjoyed the genre in the fifties - even the voices! It was well done, but I have moved on and found it only mildly interesting, NOT a thriller
