The riveting new Stone Barrington novel
from New York Times –bestselling author Stuart Woods.
When Stone Barrington embarks on a trip to Bel-Air to check in on some business and personal concerns, he expects a relaxing break from the fast pace and mean streets of New York.  But trouble never takes a vacation, and it has a way of finding Stone.  A case that had seemingly been resolved has returned in full force—with lethal results.  And this deadly situation makes for strange bedfellows when Stone finds himself teamed with the least likely ally . . . a gentleman of unique abilities, who can fly below the radar and above the law. 
From the high-stakes poker tables of Las Vegas to California's lush beachside resorts, the trail of disguise, subterfuge, and murder leads to a shocking conclusion.

I thought this book was very average. Nothing to get excited about. This character has run it course.

Enjoyed this book - started to lose faith in Stuart Woods - but this one was much better than his last few - quick, fun read.

Stuart Wood used to write very exciting (can not put it down) books but the last couple have read were boring and lack luster to say the least. His book about the death of his wife Arrington was disappointing. I have just read my last Stuart Wood book.

It has a one note feel - no variations to make it interesting. I thought the author was just going through the motions in writing this book.

It's always a thrill to spend time with Stone Barrington. Quite surprised to find him in a working relationship with a past nemisis. This book was a bit on the tamer side, but all in all a very good read.

#27 and I still find him entertaining. A quick easy read.

Excellent as usual.
We look alike. I emailed him a pictures of us both and told him that I'd read all of his books and that he had a look alike in Bixby.
He emailed me right back and said Poor thing, keep reading".
