Publisher's Summary

In the latest action-packed thriller from number one New York Times best-selling author Stuart Woods, Stone Barrington faces down a persistent rival.

Stone Barrington is nearing his New York City abode when he stumbles into trouble. As it turns out, a new client is in danger - and with both business and the safety of the city at stake, he has no choice but to get involved.

When it soon becomes clear that a complicated scheme is being hatched, Stone will need to use his expertise and connections to unravel the clever plot. Though the source remains unknown, it’s just a matter of time before he and Stone must each show their hands. From ritzy Manhattan high-rises to the lush serenity of the Connecticut countryside, the game of cat and mouse can end with only one victor....

Go woke, go broke!

Ins listened to every Stone Barrington novel and have always enjoyed them. Unfortunately the last few are continuing to get more woke and they like to push liberal views. NO ONR cares that you love rachel maddow at all so leave that out! People enjoy your books bc they take them away from all the negative main stream media.

Also, you mispronounced the Rolex Submariner every time. The Piper (told you I’ve listened to them all) is a prop-jet and not the other way around.

Still very good as the characters nearly feel like old friends after more than a decade.

Lose the liberal indication please.

Fun and sad listen

Stone and company are as usual which is to say they do what they do. The narrator is good with only a few missteps. The story moves along entertainingly. The sad part is a couple of the wrong people die. I kept hoping for a repeat of an event that occurred earlier. But it was not to be so. Stone being Stone extracts appropriate costs. Enjoy!

No surprises, just a cut and dry narration

Straightforward, no intrigue, everything the main character desired happened as a matter of course and was neatly resolved . The one exception was the murder of a secondary character and his dad.

Back on Track

I loved this story. I'm glad old characters were brought in like Saul, Holly and the computer geek.
The protagonist of the story was also a great addition.

No more Stone for me

I’m about to lose my mind with the narration…please find a younger voice! I don’t think all of these characters are supposed to be 80-90 years old, but they are in my mind. Think I’m done with Stone and company!
