Book Description

Stone Barrington finds intrigue abroad in the sensational thriller from New York Times bestselling author Stuart Woods.

Stone Barrington is no stranger to schemes and deceptions of all stripes—as an attorney for the premier white-shoe law firm Woodman & Weld, he’s seen more than his share.

But when he travels to Europe under highly unusual circumstances, Stone finds himself at the center of mystery that is most peculiar, even by his standards. Two unexpected invitations may be the first clues in an intricate puzzle that will lead Stone deep into the rarified world of European ultrawealth and privilege, where billionaires rub elbows with spies, insider knowledge is traded at a high premium, and murder is never too high a price to pay for a desired end…

Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Stone Barrington finds himself in quite a predicament in Woods’ latest outing when he wakes up in France, unable to remember the last four days of his life. Luckily he’s been safely delivered to the American embassy, where he and his friends in the CIA begin to try to piece together what transpired to bring Stone to France. His most fruitful lead proves to be an invitation to a swanky party hosted by wealthy Frenchman Marcel duBois, who offers Stone a deal on a groundbreaking new car he’s introducing into the market. He also introduces Stone to a stunning Swedish divorcée named Helga, with whom Stone is immediately taken. Stone discovers Marcel is interested in purchasing his luxury Bel Air hotel from him, and that a former KGB agent is gunning for either Marcel or him. This new entry in Woods’ long-running series starts out strong, but the seemingly endless business dealings toward the middle weigh the novel down, detracting from what could have been an engaging Stone adventure. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: The usual high-tier promotional efforts will accompany Woods’ addition to the mega–Stone Barrington series. --Kristine Huntley

1.0 out of 5 stars too much talk April 23, 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
this is without doubt the most boring tale I have read this year - too much talk and a laughable plot - a waste of paper . the previous Barrington book was a page turner - this is not - it was not all gloom - the Authors Note was a real hoot

I have read almost all of Mr. Woods books ( I get them from the library) this is certainly one of his worst books. Basically nothing of any interest happens to Stone Barrington in this novel. I would not waste your time with this story. Unfortunately I think Mr. Woods has seen his better days. He has gotten very lazy in his writing ( How else could he have 4-5 books published each year). The characters are are dull and very little if any back story is given. I read these books as if they are comic books with out the pictures, but no more, even a free Stuart Woods is not worth the time I have to invest in reading it. It takes about 3 hours to read it and probably only took Mr. Woods 6 hours to write it. I bet he just drinks a large glass of Knob Creek and dictates the book ( he does mention Knob Creek at least 5 times so I hope he is getting free whiskey from them)..... all is all this is a bore of a book. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME.

I always enjoy reading Mr. Woods books and they usually keep me intrigued to the point that I don't want to stop reading until I have read the entire book. This book, however, lacked the mystery and suspense that Stone Barrington's storyline normally have. I found it very boring.

1.0 out of 5 stars An absolute Horror! April 29, 2013
Stone Barrington has disinegrated into a wealthy sex-seeking egotistical snob. This book was written in a robotic style made up of words, words, words; most of them unnecessary. Real people just don't speak like that.If I could I would send Woods an english grammar book. Has he never heard of contractions? I get it...can't is only one word can not is two. Fill a space....fill a space. How sad that he has slid down the slippery slope of fame to the point where money is everything to him and the fans who loved him can't get the pleasure they used to get from Stone Barrington.

I'd like to sell Stone the Brooklyn Bridge...just to watch him whip out his trusty check book and casually write me a check for a couple of trillion.

But Woods created him, so I guess it is his right to destroy him. And he certainly has done that. Sad for him, for Stone and for his fans. This trend to mass produce literature has hurt a lot of authors and many, many readers. Paterson, Childs, Woods....who else will sell us down the river?

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed May 14, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read the other bad reviews, but I was a fan of his writing and decided I would get this book anyway. I am still wondering if this book was proof read before publishing. The book felt like the author just threw something together, because his deadline was approaching.

1.0 out of 5 stars utter crap May 2, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
One might think that after the complete failure and pure drivel of his last several books that perhaps the author might produce something at least close to his earlier works. Something that provides a little of the old stories. But no it does not. It is just as bad (if not worse) than the authors last several books. Nonsensical drivel and a storyline that is so unrealistic as to be fantasy. Unbelievably awful.

3.0 out of 5 stars Living off his reputation April 15, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Am avid reader of all his novels. Have read 90 percent of them, including all the Barrington novels ,many more than once. I agree with many recent reviews, that the author is going down hill fast. This was the worst--poor plot; poor character development of new characters; and rushing to conclusion. I would prefer less frequency of production, and more depth, research, and plot twists. I simply want more of the quality reads from Mr. Woods written in the style of the 2003-2010 timeframe.
