Stone Barrington finds himself in hot water in this exhilarating adventure from the #1 New York Times bestselling author.

During an intense storm in Dark Harbor, Maine, a perplexing murder lands a dead man on Stone Barrington's doorstep. As secrets swirl around this mystery man's identity, Stone quickly sets out to unravel a web of cunning misdirections and lies.    

Soon enough, he is embroiled in an elaborate game of cat and mouse between the CIA and nefarious foreign forces, including a bewitching new companion who comes under his protection. But when Stone's actions draw the attention of an old enemy, one who will stop at nothing to prevent the truth from getting out, Stone realizes he may have finally met his match.

It just keeps getting worse

I used to really like Stuart Woods, the storylines have gotten progressively worse and I think with this book it has finally hit rock bottom. In the past I kept saying it would be the last Stuart woods book I would purchase but with this installment I have finally reached the end.

Distant thunder

Very disappointed in this book !!! I have ALL of Stuart Woods books on my phone thru Audible and love re-listening to them but this book was so short and full of childish bickering between Dino and Stone to the excess and the story didn’t hold me. It just wasn’t up to par.

shorter stories and less substance.

I know most of the stone barrington series is the same in storyline. He meets a strange woman, has sex with her, gets shot at, end of story. But this really had little to go around it. And the fact that the story was only 5 hours long and you have to pay as much as you do for it, I felt kind of cheated. hopefully the next one will be a bit better.

Too short

This series is ending too soon. I hope the final books don't leave us hanging.
