Stone Barrington is called to Bel-Air to oversee an exclusive event that will gather the top echelons of the beau monde: Hollywood starlets, socialites, politicos, billionaires from overseas. It’s a task in which Stone has a personal stake, and one that is made all the more pleasurable - though somewhat more complicated - with the arrivals of two beautiful women with whom he’s intimately acquainted.
But the grand occasion has also attracted a dangerous criminal group with sinister plans. The hunt to find them leads Stone into a complex web of deceit and misdirection, in a world where the intrigues of government intelligence collide with the clandestine machinations of the upper crust.
As he draws nearer to his quarry, he realizes that the stakes are higher than anybody could ever imagine...and that the enemies he’s seeking might just be hiding in plain sight.

Less Stone and Dino, more crap about the Wealthy
It seems Stuart Woods is drifting away from Stone Barrington. These books are more and more about peripheral characters and less and less about Stone and Dino. It's not the same and not what I buy the books for. They were never anything but fairly simplistic, but I enjoyed them for their escapist value. Now, with Woods concentrating on everything but Stone, including characters that were formerly the objects of derision (like Herbie Fisher who now has to be called Herb and who Woods has made into a younger version of Stone), I am close to not getting any more of them. If the next one is like this, I'm done.
