Publisher's Summary

Stone Barrington is called to Bel-Air to oversee an exclusive event that will gather the top echelons of the beau monde: Hollywood starlets, socialites, politicos, billionaires from overseas. It’s a task in which Stone has a personal stake, and one that is made all the more pleasurable - though somewhat more complicated - with the arrivals of two beautiful women with whom he’s intimately acquainted.

But the grand occasion has also attracted a dangerous criminal group with sinister plans. The hunt to find them leads Stone into a complex web of deceit and misdirection, in a world where the intrigues of government intelligence collide with the clandestine machinations of the upper crust.

As he draws nearer to his quarry, he realizes that the stakes are higher than anybody could ever imagine...and that the enemies he’s seeking might just be hiding in plain sight.

Stone saves LA

True to form Stone. It's an ok story line, kind of predicable. Stone continues to be the luckiest man on earth. Shorter than usual. Fans of Stone will have to read it.

Can't say. I've only listened to it

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

no

Good continuation of these characters. They've become part of our family in recent years and we can't wait to continue the saga.
