Description
Stone Barrington returns in the new edge-of-your-seat thriller from the #1 New York Times–bestselling author. When he's apprised at the last minute of a mandatory meeting abroad, Stone Barrington rushes off to Europe for a whirlwind tour of business and, of course, pleasure. But from the start the trip seems to be cursed, plagued by suspicious "accidents" and unfortunate events, and some of Stone's plans go up in flames—literally. Not a believer in coincidence, Stone sets out to learn the true source of his curious misfortune and finds that what appeared to be bad luck may, in fact, have been a warning. From the chic streets of Paris to the majestic Italian coast, Stone is pursued from all sides . . . but when the tables turn, the hunted may become the hunter . . .From the Hardcover edition.

        July 20, 2015
        Edgar-winner Woods’s appealing 35th Stone Barrington novel (after Naked Greed) takes the peripatetic New York lawyer, playboy, and investor to Rome, where the Arrington Group, of which he is a board member, is planning to build a palatial new hotel. On Stone’s last-minute flight from JFK, he meets Hedy Kiesler, a beautiful artist, with whom he shares an upgrade to first class—and later a bed in Rome. Meanwhile, Leonardo Casselli, a relocated New York Mafia don, makes it clear that the hotel won’t go up peacefully until he gets his share of the action. Stone calls on old friends Dino Bacchetti of the NYPD and Mike Freeman of Strategic Services for aid in his fight with Casselli, who has plenty of goons at his disposal. When Hedy becomes a pawn in the conflict, Stone devises a dangerous plan to infiltrate Casselli’s stronghold on the Amalfi coast. The finale boasts Woods’s customary combination of panache and brio. Agent: Anne Sibbald, Janklow & Nesbit.

        August 15, 2015
        A former New York Mafioso who's fled home to Italy kidnaps the latest inamorata of the redoubtable Stone Barrington (Hot Pursuit, 2015, etc.). Big mistake.Stone's flown the Atlantic at an hour's notice, flirting en route with painter Hedy Kiesler, to vote in favor of opening a new Arrington Hotel in Rome. No sooner have the contracts been signed than trouble erupts. The unfinished hotel already standing abandoned on the site is torched; Stone's borrowed car is stolen and set alight as well; he gets several increasingly overt threats encouraging him to go home and forget the deal; and it's clear that they're coming from Leonardo Casselli, the patriarchal mobster who just hates being called Leo. Packing Hedy off from his hotel bed in Rome to another bed in Paris, Stone stays just long enough to read the riot act in response to Casselli's suave luncheon offer of extortionate "protection," threatening him with the extensive resources of Massimo Bertelli's Italian Anti-Mafia Investigative Department; Stone's unfathomably wealthy business partner Marcel duBois; his buddy Mike Freeman's company, Strategic Services; his even closer buddy Commissioner Dino Bacchetti's New York Police Department; and President Katharine Rule Lee, another close personal friend. Then he hastens back to Rome, leaving Hedy in his Paris house, from which she's promptly abducted. Stone soon finds out that Casselli's holding Hedy in an impregnable house on the Amalfi coast; Casselli soon finds out that Stone wasn't kidding about all those connections. Apart from all the big names tossed in to cow Casselli, Woods mostly soft-pedals the usual gratuitous inflation and extraneous subplots, keeping things simple, straightforward, and pleasantly predictable.

        Stone Barrington is back--he's a frequent visitor with Woods doing four books a year now--but he's not staying put. Told last minute about a mandatory meeting abroad, he's off to Rome. Last year's "Carnal Curiosity" was the perennially popular Woods's first No. 1 "New York Times" best seller. With a 300,000-copy first printing.
