Publisher's Summary

Former cop turned lawyer turned investigator, Stone Barrington is in a position that every ex-policeman dreads; all around him people are dying, and he suspects the killer may be someone he put in prison years before.Dino Bacchetti, Stone's ex-partner, is not immune either, and the two men must pool their resources to protect those close to them. Stone's former love, Arrington, now married to movie star Vance Calder, is back too, and nose to nose with a new woman in Stone's life, one with a Mafia bloodline who may be as dangerous as she is beautiful.Stone and Dino begin to trace their tracks from years before looking for clues that might lead them to the brilliant killer. From a premier table at the legendary Elaine's to dark back alleys where Armani-clad mobsters with the latest lethal accessories dwell, this nail-biting suspense tale takes Stone on a life-and-death hunt that twists and turns till the very end, a gripping thrill ride that will test him as no case has ever done before. Racing to find a killer, Stone can only pray that his worst fears won't be realized.

Stuart Does it Again

Another in the series of lawyer/detective Stone Barrington. Such a great character to follow. If you haven't read/heard any at all, I suggest you start with "New York Dead" that was the first in the series. If you are listening in order, Mr. Woods does not disappoint! You will enjoy this one as much or more than any of his others.

Very Disappointed

I would really like to get my money back for this book. The story is absolutely unbelievable and predictable. I stopped listening after a couple of chapters. This from the author of "Chiefs" an excellent read. Too bad
