ProductsMore About Cut and Thrust by Stuart WoodsOverview
When Stone Barrington travels to Los Angeles for the biggest political convention of the year, he finds the scene quite shaken up: a dazzling newcomer—and close friend of Stone’s—has given the delegates an unexpected choice, crucial alliances are made and broken behind closed doors, and it seems that more than one seat may be up for grabs. And amid the ambitious schemers and hangers-on are a few people who may use the chaotic events as cover for more sinister plans. . . .
In this milieu of glad-handing and backroom deals, only the canniest player can come out on top . . . and it will take all of Stone’s discretion and powers of persuasion to arrange a desirable outcome.Details

Bestseller Woods’s politically themed 30th Stone Barrington novel (after Carnal Curiosity) takes the debonair New York attorney to Los Angeles for the Democratic National Convention. Stone plays host at the Arrington, his posh Beverly Hills resort, to his current lover, Ann Keaton, who’s the deputy campaign manager for presidential candidate Katharine “Kate” Lee. When Kate, the wife of current President Will Lee, asks Stone to act as her intermediary at the convention, she has no idea just how big a role he will play. Happily, Stone proves as adept at political deal making as he is at defusing physical threats and character assassinations. Lending support are such pals as Ed Eagle, a member of New Mexico’s delegation, who’s still hunted by his deadly ex-wife, Barbara, and Stone’s old NYPD partner, Dino Bachetti, now chief of detectives. This installment goes down as smoothly as a glass of Knob Creek. Author tour. Agent: Anne Sibbald, Janklow & Nesbit. (July)
