Stone Barrington is back in the exciting new adventure from perennial fan favorite Stuart Woods.
It s not often that Stone Barrington finds a woman as accustomed to the jet-set lifestyle as he, so he s pleasantly surprised when he meets a gorgeous pilot who s soon moving to New York, and available for closer acquaintance. Their travels together lead them from Wichita to Europe, but trailing them is some unwanted baggage: his new lady love s unstable, criminal ex-boyfriend.
And while Stone is fending off his newest adversary, trouble is brewing on the international stage. Several enemy operatives are at large, and only a coordinated intelligence effort will have any chance of stopping their deadly plot. But the clock is ticking . . . and time has nearly run out."

At the start of Edgar-winner Woods's glossy 33rd Stone Barrington novel (after Insatiable Appetites), the bourbon-sipping lawyer and aviator takes possession of a brand-new private jet on a chilly winter's day at an airfield in Wichita, Kans. The Citation M2 comes complete with an attractive female copilot, Pat Frank, with whom widower Stone strikes up a friendship on the flight to New York. When Pat's stalker ex-boyfriend, Kevin Keyes, makes a threatening appearance, Stone and Pat promptly hightail it to London. Meanwhile, dastardly terrorists from Dahai, a fictitious sultanate sandwiched between Yemen and Oman, are making trouble on the international scene. To Woods's credit, many of his characters in high positions are women, including his friend Kate Lee, the American president. Never mind that the parallel plot lines of Kevin's revenge and the Arab terrorist plot never really mesh. Series fans will enjoy the vicarious luxury ride as usual. Author tour. Agent: Anne Sibbald, Janklow & Nesbit. (Apr.)
