It seems like just another quiet night at Elaine's. Stone Barrington and his former cop partner, Dino, are enjoying some pasta when in walks former client and all around sad sack Herbie Fisher...with a briefcase containing $14 million in cash.
Herbie claims to have won the money on a lucky lotto ticket, but he also says he needs a lawyer-and after a single gunshot breaks the window above his head and sends diners scrambling, Stone and Dino suspect Herbie might need a bodyguard and a private investigator, too.

Series that has lost it's appeal
The narrator really does a poor job with Dino's and the English ladies voices. I enjoyed this series for a while but it has gotten old. The books are very short and the plots are not what they were. This is a case of an author milking his past success. Even at $9.95, I feel I wasted my money. I think I've cured myself of Stuart Woods.

To be continued...
I am a huge fan of the Stone Barrington novels and this one does not dissappoint. As with all the books in this series, there is always another novel with some repeat characters and interwoven story lines. My only reason for not giving this book 5 stars is because this is yet another in a whole series of books from the last year that seems to not end and require the purchase of a to-be-continued book.
Tony Roberts does yet another bang up job in the narration and there are more storylines and characters in one book than normal. If you are a Herbie Fisher (sp?) fan, then you will get your fill in this book as he is crazy as ever and adds the comic relief to what could be considered a darker Stone book than normal.
