Stone Barrington faces down danger on New York's mean streets in the latest thriller from perennial fan favorite Stuart Woods.

Upon returning to the states from a European jaunt, Stone Barrington makes the acquaintance of a stunning woman who seems like she could be an ideal candidate to meet some of his professional--and personal--needs. Before long, though, Stone is put to the task of protecting his new hire when New York City is rocked by a series of disturbing crimes, and it looks as if she might be the next target.

In the city that never sleeps there's always a plot being hatched, and the only recourse is constant vigilance and a bit of luck. But if those defensive systems fail, Stone will have to go head-to-head against some of the most dastardly scum he's ever faced . . .


  • Another poor read.

    Stuart Woods needs to put out less books or retire, his writing skills have diminished greatly they past few years. I used to enjoy this series but now it reads like a kindergartener wrote it. The last one I will purchase.

    Wow. Talk about mailing it in. Used to be entertaining, but between this book and Severe Clear, they both read like a junior high assignment. Hard to come out with so many books and maintain quality, I guess.
  • Very Disappointing

    By BK0461
    I was so disappointed. This book reads like it was written hastily for an audience of illiterates. It was so cheesy and second-rate that I could not force myself to finish it. Stuart should be ashamed of peddling this book as literature. I wasted my $14.99 on this book.
  • New York Dead Exhumed?

    Did someone exhume the initial book in Stone Barrington series, New York Dead?

    While thoroughly enjoying this series...I do sometimes wish Stone would be somewhat more loyal to the women who appears at frequent intervals.
