Overview
In the latest thriller from #1 New York Times-bestselling author Stuart Woods, Stone Barrington's newest foe has a short fuse...and it's just been lit.

Stone Barrington is enjoying a boating excursion off the Maine coast when a chance encounter leaves him somewhat the worse for wear. Always able to find the silver lining in even the unhappiest circumstances, Stone is pleased to discover that the authors of his misfortune are, in fact, members of a prestigious family who present a unique business opportunity, and who require a man of Stone's skills to overcome a sticky situation of their own.

The acquaintance is fortuitous indeed, for as it turns out, Stone and his new friends have an enemy in common. He's the sort of man who prefers force to finesse, and who regards any professional defeat as a personal and intolerable insult. And when Stone's sly cunning collides with his adversary's hair-trigger-temper, the results are sure to be explosive...

Stone Barrington survives a number of close calls, starting with a collision between his yacht and another, larger boat in Maines foggy Penobscot Bay, in Edgar-winner Woodss enjoyable 41st novel starring the successful New York City attorney (after Below the Belt). Fortunately, this accident results in Stones becoming friends with the other boats owners, a family of doctors named Carlsson, of the Carlsson Clinic, a famous hospital, with locations in several cities, like the Mayo Clinic. Stone ends up helping the Carlssons thwart a takeover of their clinic, thereby antagonizing the schemer behind the takeover attempt, Erik Macher. The ruthless, hot-headed Macher and his henchmen try to blow up Stone with plastic explosives theyve managed to hide in the lawyers Manhattan townhouse, but the timely intervention of a bomb-sniffing dog saves the day. A series of tit-for-tat exchanges leads to an exciting showdown between Macher and Stone at a Virginia farmhouse. Series fans will be pleased to learn that a major career change looms for Stone in his next outing. Agent: Anne Sibbald, Janklow & Nesbit. (Apr.)
