Summary
In this exhilarating new thriller from #1 New York Times bestselling author Stuart Woods, Stone Barrington must go up against an enemy with deadly intentions--and ideologies.

Stone Barrington and his friends are vacationing in Maine when their leisure is suddenly disrupted by extreme weather. To make matters worse, the inclement conditions allow for a menacing adversary to sneak in unnoticed and deliver a chilling message. Soon it becomes clear that the target of the incident is one of Stone's closest companions, and that these enemies have a grander scheme in mind.

From the bustling streets of New York City to the sun-drenched shores of Key West, Stone intends to nab the criminals that appear behind him at every step. But his search only leads him further down a trail of peril and corruption, and he'll soon find that at the end of the road is a more dangerous foe than he could have imagined...
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "No sooner has former Secretary of State Holly Barker been elected president than she's repeatedly targeted for assassination. Exhausted and needing a break, she and Stone Barrington take off for his home in Maine. While they evade her protectors to go sailing, an aborted raid leaves six Secret Service agents dead. This sends Barker and Barrington briefly to his Key West home (he has many homes) before she's called back to Washington, where more attempts are made on her life, even in the White House. Officials are certain that a small band led by right-wing ex-colonel Wade Sykes is behind the attempts, but they lack proof, even with FBI and CIA moles in Sykes' group trying to outsmart one another. Hasty wrap-up aside, this is prime Woods, with "serial monogamist" Barrington and his "irregular lover" Barker (in the words of Barrington's pal, New York Police Commissioner Dino Bacchetti) center stage, and the series set to take a more political bent. Slick, reliable, action-oriented escapism, just right for troubled times."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Secretary of State Holly Barker is elected president in bestseller Woods's exciting 54th Stone Barrington novel (after Hit List). New York lawyer Stone immediately invites Holly, his longtime paramour, to spend a week at his house in Islesboro, Maine. Holly and Stone secretly travel with a Secret Service detail to the island, where the next day they sneak out of the house and go for a sail. On their return, they discover that six agents have been shot to death. Who could have known Holly was on the island? Meanwhile in Virginia, bigoted Wade Sykes ("having a woman as president was bad, having two in a row is intolerable") and his henchmen remain determined to assassinate her. They have a mole inside Holly's transition team who knows her schedule, but fortunately the FBI has an undercover agent inside Sykes's group. The tension mounts as Stone and his allies attempt to keep Holly safe, and Sykes and company maneuver to get a sniper in place at one of her public appearances. The action builds to a satisfying double climax. With its high political stakes, this is one of the better recent entries in this long-running series. Agent: Anne Sibbald, Janklow & Nesbit. (Aug.)"
