In this latest adrenaline-charged thriller from #1 New York Times bestselling author Stuart Woods, Stone Barrington takes on a vengeful rival.

Stone Barrington is looking forward to some quiet time in New York City, until he is asked to transport precious, top-secret cargo across the Atlantic. Taking on the challenge, Stone flies off unaware of what—or who—he is bringing with him. 
But his plans to lie low are quickly spoiled when a dangerous dispatcher tracks down Stone and his tantalizing mystery guest, intent on payback—and silencing anyone who poses a threat. From the English countryside to the balmy beaches of Key West, Stone is on an international mission to hide and protect those closest to him. 


  • Beyond ridiculous

    By Nonnachka
    This has got to be the most idiotic book I ever paid money for. Calling the plot far-fetched and ludicrous would be a massive understatement. And the writing is terrible. It’s as though someone took random post-it’s with snippets of (bad) ideas, did minimal arranging and added a title. Maybe if SW should focus a bit more on quality, rather than quantity of “stories” he cranks out. Also, the eat/have sex/sleep/move to a new location/shoot a bad guy/ rinse and repeat routine is mind-numbing.

    Good beginning,nice middle, but really stupid ending. Stuart Woods needs to write fewer books since he’s losing relevance.
  • Worse one Yet

    By W$RD234
    I’ve read all the Barrington books. Yes, they are all trite, but this one was beyond the pale. Ridiculous story line, and political. I don’t need any more politics when I am reading for fun. Mr. woods, please focus more on quality and less on quantity or you will lose another faithful reader.

    They eat, they drink, they have sex, then repeat. Then they’ll shoot someone. Then eat, drink, and sex. If I lived that way I would be severely obese but sexually satisfied!

    Love all of Stuart Wood’s books. Have read every one of them so far. Ordered Black Dog already.
  • Blah

    This book was terrible. Contrived plot that moved at the pace of grass growing. Characters that were not only unbelievable but so thin that one dimensional is a compliment. So sad to see this peddled as a novel. Think of it more as a cross between a children’s book and instruction manual for how to use a pencil.
  • Don’t waste your time

    By MTerry001
    I stopped reading these Barringtion books a couple of years ago, they became repetitive, and even silly. While looking for something to read I gave Stone another go. This book is ridiculous a high school kid could’ve done this. Stuart can’t help bringing politics into his books, like that is what we’re looking for when we pick up a book in these days?? Poorly written, unrealistic, not even plausible. A total waste of 14 bucks and 7 hrs. I’m done wit SW

    I keep praying that there a 12 step program to break me of the Stuart Woods habit. The latest tome consists of Stone in bed with one and even two women in almost every chapter. If the time line of the Barrington stories starting in 1991 holds true Stone should now be in his mid sixties. He either has the libido of Don Juan, or is a Phizer poster child. Come on Stuart you can do better than this, and if not retire the character and start something new. No need to put us through the drivel of a novel only to wrap everything up in five paragraphs at the end.

    Really good read, if a little far fetched. Good ending.

    This is truest one of my least favorite books of woods and definitely not worth $15. Very trite dialogue, poorly developed characters and ridiculous plot line. Definitely not the quality of 5 years ago?
