Publisher's Summary

Stone Barrington clashes with a determined adversary in the latest nonstop thriller from number one New York Times best-selling author Stuart Woods.

Stone Barrington and his latest paramour are enjoying a peaceful country retreat when their idyll is broken by an unwelcome stranger. He was sent by an enemy, someone who'd be happy to silence Stone and all his collaborators for good...only it's soon clear that Stone is not an easy man to target.

But with boundless resources and a thirst for vengeance, this foe will not be deterred, and when one plot fails another materializes. Their latest plan is more ambitious and subtle than any they've tried before, and the consequences could remake the nation. With the country's future in the balance, Stone will need to muster all his savvy and daring to defeat this rival once and for all.

Failure for Woods

I am a diligent fan of Stuart Woods and his Stone Barrington novels. Waiting patiently for the next installment, anxious to see what Stone does next, and loving the mystery of the new plot. Wild Card was completely disappointing, the plot was no different than Delicate Touch. The tale went on as boring as a repeat could be and the political ploy is ruining a once vibrant character. Holly Barker would have never ran for President and let us guess.....she wins the election! Come on Stuart let's have something happen to renew the story and get back to sleuthing. Your political views and the requirement to pay taxes has been covered.

WAY TOO POLITICAL

Really getting tired of this author using his books to grandstand his liberal politics. Gets old fast.

Boilerplate story

Disappointed. This was the weakest book in the series and I’ve heard all. Woods “mailed it in.” Weak storylines and uninspiring sex scenes. Hope the next is better.

Woods has turned into a dime store novelist

Loved reading about the "rich and famous"? Charming Stone Barrington, et. all (did I say that properly?)? Reading about how the jet set lives without envy? Throughout over 50 books, so was I. No longer. Unnecessary swearing, vividly described, trashy sexual encounters - does your writing turn to garbage AFTER you're world famous? I sent the next book back after less than a chapter. Get it free and you'll get what you pay for unfortunately.

Thrill a minute.

Woods is my favorite author. I have dozens of hardback and paperbacks. Never a disappointment.

I like Dino and the crowd. The narrator does Dino very well. Stuart Woods is great at what he does.

Another excellent Barrington

If you have not listened to this series take it from me it's entertaining action filled and gets your mind off of the real problems of the world. The characters are fun.
