Publisher's Summary

In the newest addition to the bestselling series, Stone Barrington and Holly Barker pursue a master spy and murderer in a tropical paradise where very little is as it seems.

Teddy Fay, a rogue agent last seen escaping an imploding building in Iron Orchid, has been considered dead for some time now. But President Will Lee thinks Teddy may still be alive. In a top-secret Oval Office meeting, Stone learns that he and his cohorts, Holly Barker and Dino Baldachetti, are being sent to the beautiful Caribbean island of St. Marks, courtesy of the CIA, to track down Teddy once and for all.

St. Marks is a vacationer's paradise, but its luxurious beach clubs and secluded mountain villas are home to corrupt local politicians and more than a few American ex-pats with murky personal histories. Stone and Holly soon discover that in St. Marks, everyone is hiding something, and Teddy Fay may just be hiding in plain sight.

Good, but hard to listen to

I would almost prefer to give this 1 star, and wish I could have given it 4 because it IS a good story. However, Tony Roberts' narration is so bad if makes it difficult to listen to. His accents are terrible - all of them. And even his general voice was affected. It made me cringe. Then his pronunciation of "Spokane" sounding like rain! GRRR! Kept thinking "now if George Guidall or Grover Gardner were reading this, it would be fantastic!" If you can tolerate really bad narration, go ahead and get this book, otherwise never mind.

What you would expect...

...from Stuart Woods. Somewhat superficial, slightly unbelievable and highly entertaining. I don't think I would ever rate one of his works a "5", but I do enjoy the listen. But don't look for anything too deep.

Holly and Stone, together again

I really like the Holly Barker character, and it is good to see her pair up with Stone again. The story was good, and it was an easy listen.
My only complaint is that the reader mis-pronounced the city where Stone left his plane to be worked on ... Spokane is pronounced like "Spo-can" not Spo-cane. Surprising that such a good reader would get that wrong.

Shoot Him If He Runs

The gang is all here for this work of art. Stone, Holly Barker, Deno. And Deno's new girl friend. Lance does not make an appearence. There is an odd sort of reference to Stone's girl friend, Arrentin Carter. She dump's Stone after doing an interview with Lance Carter.

Not bad

Not my favorite Stone Barrington Novel. It seems that the story drags when other characters are brought in from another series. I love the Holly Barker series as well but the same thing happens in those with Teddy.

Chapter repetition

I love this series but don’t want to finish this book because the chapters are jumbled. It is frustrating having to skip around and try to figure out where the repetition ends and get back to where the book continues. I was already frustrated that the last book wasn’t on audible and this book doesn’t have the chapters listed correctly (for example audible says there are 13 chapters of various lengths but there are more than 50). I would hope this problem will be corrected as soon as possible so people can listen to Stuart woods the way it was written.

Last chapter for Audible is many duplicated and out of order chapters

The story was decent but not as good as some of the other Stone Barrington books. Couple that with audible issues and it was a frustrating last 40 minutes.

Fun read

Chapters are messed up and repeat themselves in an annoying manner. Very aggravating but book was good
