Publisher's Summary

Stone Barrington’s newest client does not seem the type to bring mayhem in his wake. A polite, well-deported gentleman, he comes to Stone seeking legal expertise on an unusual - and potentially lucrative - dilemma. Stone points him in the right direction and sends him on his way, but it’s soon clear Stone hasn’t seen the end of the case. Several people are keenly interested in this gentleman’s activities and how they may relate to a long-ago crime...and some of them will stop at nothing to find the information they desire.

On a hunt that leads from Florida’s tropical beaches to the posh vacation homes of the Northeast, Stone finds himself walking a tightrope between ambitious authorities and seedy lowlifes who all have the same prize in their sights. In this cutthroat contest of wills, it’s winner-takes-all...and Stone will need every bit of his cunning and resourcefulness to be the last man standing.

Another flop

Bad, naive, predictable, arrogant. That's before Herb Fisher, Stuart Wods's alter ego shows up,,,down hill from there. Wish I skipped this one.

Stand Up Guy

Enjoyed as much as his other books. Kept me interestested, although I thought I figured out Hank was the culprit before it became out.

Disappointed

I have read or listened to every one of Stuart Woods books up til this point. I am a little disappointed in this story line as the character Stone Barrington is much to smart to have done the things in this book that he did. Hope this doesn't continue to happen to this character.

Unbelievable . . . in a bad way

I am a huge Stuart Woods fan, but to enjoy this book one needs to suspend common sense. Dino and Stone, the two protagonists, are smart characters as a rule. The perp was so obvious from the beginning that I kept thinking there would be an unforeseen twist . . . . but no. If you're willing to listen to this book for pure escapism, you may not have the issues that I do. But if you enjoy trying to solve a mystery - forget about it.

Easy summer beach reading~

I found this to be light entertainment that was engaging but required no thought - a nice blend of plot twists and comfortable predictability.

One of the better Stone Barrington stories...

If you read these books, you know that many of the stories are very similar. This was, on the cusp, of being refreshingly different.

Another Great Stone Harrington Book

when I see some of these negative reviews I sometime wonder if we're listening to the same book. This book and the narration was excellent.
