Summary
Stone Barrington uncovers a societal minefield in this exhilarating adventure from #1 New York Times -bestselling author Stuart Woods.

When an old acquaintance reaches out to Stone Barrington requesting assistance, the job seems easy enough. She needs an expert in an esoteric field, someone with both the knowledge and careful dexterity to solve a puzzle. But the solution to one small problem blows the lid open on a bigger scandal going back decades, and involving numerous prominent New Yorkers who would prefer the past stay buried.

With this explosive information in-hand, Stone Barrington is caught between a rock and a hard place, his only options either to play it safe to the detriment of others, or to see justice done and risk fatal exposure. But when it comes to Stone Barrington, danger is usually just around the corner . . . so he may as well throw caution to the wind.

Booklist Review
Woods' Stone Barrington is always dependable, even as the author turns out four books a year featuring this much-loved character. Ex-NYPD detective turned lawyer at a tony law firm, Barrington is able to indulge his expensive tastes while maintaining his integrity. Here, as executor of the estate of Eduardo Bianchi, a man reputedly once high in the Mafia in his younger years who turned respectable and gained power, Barrington comes into possession of files on 12 men, 11 now dead, containing explosive information. The sole living subject of the files is Gianni Tommassini, whose Mafia-ordered murders are documented. Now, with his name anglicized to Henry Thomas, he leads a prominent banking family, and his grandson is a candidate for president. Barrington plans to expose the files and the politically motivated corruption behind them, but first he must evade the Thomas family in a potentially deadly yacht chase. Woods continues to deliver satisfying escapist fare, with the Bondian Barrington outmaneuvering his foes yet again, always with high-tech gadgetry at the ready and a beautiful woman at his side.--Michele Leber Copyright 2018 Booklist
