A fast pace compensates only in part for superficial characters with a penchant for spewing one-liners.

Synopsis

A new city brings new life to Stone Barrington as Stuart Woods’s bestselling series continues…

After a shocking loss, Stone Barrington is at loose ends, unsure if he wants to stay in New York and continue his work as a partner at Woodman and Weld. It comes as a welcome relief when he’s summoned to Washington, D.C., by President Will Lee. The President has a special operation that calls for Stone’s unique skill set, and it’s a mission that will reunite him with his former partner in bed and in crime, Holly Barker.

...readers get to watch Stone bed Holly and two less fortunate ladies whose deaths...make it obvious, through process of elimination, who the March Hare is.

Redoubtable Stone not only beds the best women and corrals the best lifestyle perks but succeeds so well in his job that he’s rewarded with a full partnership in his law firm and a large share of control over Centurion himself. What a guy.

...publishing books like this one will destroy what is an amazing brand of books. Do yourself a favor and read one of the earlier books and skip this one.

Woods gives his characters humor, intelligence, integrity and a willingness to work with all agencies involved...Future titles will be sure to tantalize with Stone’s robust personality.
