"Stone Barrington must trap a ruthless defector in this heart-stopping thriller from fan favorite Stuart Woods"--
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Stone Barrington hardly has time to regret not bringing a female companion on his latest trip to his English country house. His bed is soon warmed sequentially (at least at first) by Dame Felicity Devonshire, director of MI6; Dr. Rose McGill, a new acquaintance whom he meets at an MI6 training camp in the Scottish Highlands; and U.S. Secretary of State Holly Barker, who's contemplating a presidential bid. At the training camp, Barrington has a run-in with Colonel Roger Fife-Simpson, who's soon promoted to brigadier and foisted off on Devonshire as her deputy. Her efforts to get rid of him lead to his early retirement and increasing enmity toward both her and Barrington, feelings that are ripe for exploitation by a rival power. Fortunately, Barrington, who's long served as a consultant to the CIA, accepts a formal role as a deputy director, instantly providing him with tools and information that prove life-saving as well as a position that will surely enhance future outings. Smooth, easy-reading escapism in the trademark Woods style.--Michele Leber Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Bestseller Woods's surprising 51st Stone Barrington novel (after Contraband) takes the New York lawyer to Station Two, an MI6 training facility in the Scottish Highlands, where he almost drowns after driving the Aston Martin he borrowed from his friend Dame Felicity Devonshire, the head of MI6, off a bridge into a river--and where he's treated for minor injuries by Lt. Rose McGill, an attractive doctor with whom he soon becomes intimate. He also receives a dressing down from Station Two's colonel, Roger Fife-Simpson, for wrecking the head of MI6's sports car, but the colonel apologizes after investigators determine that a foreign operative who infiltrated the facility shot the car's tires as it sped over the bridge. Stone later makes an enemy of the disgruntled Fife-Simpson, who feels higher-ups have thwarted his career ambitions. The rising tension doesn't prevent Stone from spending a lot of time in bed with Rose (and Dame Felicity). Never mind a final confrontation straight out of a James Bond film. This venture into espionage territory makes a refreshing change from the criminal skullduggery Stone usually faces. Agent: Anne Sibbald, Janklow & Nesbit Assoc. (Oct.)"
