Light reading always, but polished story telling. Stuart Woods publishes new books as fast as readers read them. But inevitably, each one is good reading if you are happy with light fare, do depth reading.

Stone Barrington is settling in for a stretch in New York when he receives news that demands immediate action. An old family matter has unexpectedly resurfaced, and Stone must decamp to the craggy shores of Maine to address the issue head-on.

There, Stone finds that a dual-pronged threat is hiding in plain sight among the stately houses and exclusive coastal clubs, and the incursion isn’t easily rebuffed. These enemies have friends in high places, funds to spare, and a score to settle with Stone . . . and only the cleverest plot will draw them out into the open. From luxuriously renovated homes to the choppy ocean waters, the pursuit can only lead to an explosive end.

Richard says
This story has Woods’ version of James Bond in the character, Teddy Fay. Sleuth, killer, con artist, disguise genius, pilot, arms expert….Teddy is every crime book’s super sleuth. Woods turns him in entertainingly light reading.
