Cop-turned-lawyer Stone Barrington tracks a mobster hiding deep inside the witness protection program in this next thriller in the New York Times-bestselling series. Stone Barrington is, once again, right at home in New York City; but this time he is joined by the tenacious Holly Barker from Orchid Blues, the lady police chief of Orchid Island, Florida. In Reckless Abandon, Holly finally makes it to Manhattan, hot on the trail of an evil fugitive from her jurisdiction. Stone is, well, glad to see her, right up until the moment when her presence creates a great danger to both of them-and to their surprise, she becomes the pursued, not the pursuer.

I have enjoyed reading the Holly Barker books, but this one took a severe turn for the worse. Woods depicted Barker as a dimwit who has no self control and little or no judgment. To rub salt in the wounds, Stone negotiates contracts for him and Holly, where all of the details are identical except that he gets three times the compensation that she does. UGH! There is already too much sexism and misogyny in the world without me inviting it into my life through a fictional story.

I will read no more of this series, and no more of this author. UGH!

Stone and Holly begin their hunt for the elusive killer,
who is protected by the FBI as a witness in other crimes. Not really edge-of-your seat action, but still good enough to read.
