Summary
A #1 New York Times Bestselling AuthorA Stone Barrington NovelStone Barrington and several friends are vacationing in Florida when an extreme weather event puts a damper on their trip. Even worse, the hurricane-force winds blow a powerful, noxious politician straight onto Stone's doorstep. Though they part ways before long, Stone soon learns that he hasn't seen the last of his new acquaintance. It turns out that this official has some shady associates who may have destructive plans afoot, and Stone needs an entrée to the inside to figure out their scheme. With the fate of nations at stake, Stone must summon all of his fearless daring to put an end to the audacious plot . . . but this time he may be in over his head.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Nominally an attorney, Stone Barrington spends most of his time enjoying life as a bon vivant. In this forty-sixth installment in the phenomenally long-running series, Stone is never without ample supplies of high-end Scotch and female companionship, whether he is waiting out hurricanes in his newly fortified Florida manse or visiting his well-stocked homes in New York and Europe. Breaking up his hedonistic routine, Stone occasionally accepts, though usually reluctantly, the odd Bondian assignment. This time he agrees to help the U.S. government stop arms dealer Selwyn Owaki from completing a sale that could cost thousands of lives. Stone rises to the occasion, of course, using his international connections and bullet-proof charm to stop the bad guy and return unscathed to the good life. In the post-James Bond era, the prolific Woods has claimed the luxury suspense subgenre as his own.--Karen Keefe Copyright 2018 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "The approach of Hurricane Irma raises the tension early in bestseller Woods's 46th novel featuring lawyer Stone Barrington (after Shoot First) as Stone and friends, including Secretary of State Holly Barker, hunker down at his house in Key West, Fla. Joe Box, the junior senator from Florida, who two months earlier tried to assault Holly after a White House dinner, briefly takes shelter with Stone. Once the storm passes and Stone is able to leave the island in his private plane, the plot centers on the efforts of American and British authorities to arrest Selwyn Owaki, a notorious arms dealer with ties to Box. When an attempt involving Stone to nab Owaki at a London restaurant goes awry, Stone becomes a target for some powerful people and must go on the run. The hunt for Owaki turns out to have surprisingly high political stakes, but, since the book's principal villain is barely seen and has a minimal backstory, some readers may feel cheated, despite the concluding fireworks.
