Publisher's Summary

Stone Barrington faces down danger on all sides in the latest thriller from perennial fan-favorite Stuart Woods.

Stone Barrington is settling in for a stretch in New York when he receives news that demands immediate action. An old family matter has unexpectedly resurfaced, and Stone must decamp to the craggy shores of Maine to address the issue head-on. 

There, Stone finds that a dual-pronged threat is hiding in plain sight among the stately houses and exclusive coastal clubs, and the incursion isn't easily rebuffed. These enemies have friends in high places, funds to spare, and a score to settle with Stone...and only the cleverest plot will draw them out into the open. From luxuriously renovated homes to the choppy ocean waters, the pursuit can only lead to an explosive end.

Stone Barrington has run its course

Barrington has run his course. Stuart Woods is simply hanging on to past successes. The character are predictable, the endings are expected, and the storylines are no longer exciting.

Woods and Roberts need to let this line die in peace.

Childish writing style

Ludicrous story with the most corny writing style. So many better books to spend time with.

Disappointing

Weak story line. Predictable. Abrupt ending. Love Ed Rawls and his girlfriend, Sally. Interesting characters. Stone’s actions seemed out of character. Probably limited options and the result seemed fair. The legal system, especially with politics mixed in, is not always fair or just.

It’s OK

So many of Stone Barrington books are hard to put down. Not this one. I enjoyed it but it really wasn’t anything special

Disliked the narrator and dialogue

The storyline wasn’t bad, but the narrator was pretty awful. His voice distracted from the narrative as I gave up listening because of him. The writer didn’t seem to know how to write “normal” dialogue. It often seemed stilted and awkward. Not a fan.

Heads above

Great plot, great character participation, and so glad there was just a hint of the sexual descriptions

Not the best

Stuart Woods may have taken the Stone Barrington character a couple of books too far.
Last 2 have been disappointing. Still a fan waiting to see more Holly Barker in the next stories. Stone and Dino can’t do much more on their own.
