Publisher's Summary

The unflappable Stone Barrington comes face to face with two men whose lives are wrapped in shadows and lies - and who both still feel the sting of betrayal they can never forget.

Between a Rock and a Hard Place

Hired by an odd client previously unknown to him, Stone arrives in London on a mission he thinks he understands but doesn't. Soon he finds himself not only out of his territory but out of his depth as well. Baffled as he is by the behavior of both his quarry and his client, Stone's life is further complicated by two, possibly three murders and the affectionate attentions of two former lovers. When the intelligence services of three countries become involved, he can only hang on for a wild ride and hope for a not-too-bumpy landing.

Boring

Had a very tough time paying attention to this one. First book in the series I felt like that. Tough listening to Dino's voice sometimes as well.

Reminds me of why I started this series.

This book was newly released, so I bought it eventhough I didnt recall if I had heard it. I had not. Its the introduction of Carpenter and surprisingly Lance Cabott. Cool to go back when he was still "struggling". Drivng his own car., cooking his own breakfast, only $350K in the bank and flying commercial :-) Also forgot how graphic the sex was in the early books ... kinda like back when I was thrity :-) Good story, good twists at the end. Classic Stone Barringtion. I might get another old one.

Awesome

Another Stone Barrington classic. Takes place in England and builds up a reason why Stone loves the British.

One of Woods better story plots for Stone Barrington. The reader was very good. Look forward to more of Woods books.
