RECKLESS ABANDON, Stuart Woods

Synopsis
It’s double the pleasure and double the fun as Woods brings series character Holly Barker, chief of the Orchid Beach, Fla., police department (of Orchid Blues, etc.), onstage to co-star with PI Stone Barrington (of Dirty Work, etc.) in his latest adventure.

Holly’s come to New York hot on the trail of Trini Rodriguez, a bad guy she thought she’d stabbed to death in an earlier adventure. He’s currently wanted for (among other things) blowing up a dozen people by hiding bombs in the caskets of two of his earlier victims and detonating them at the funeral. But finding him won’t be so simple: he’s been placed in the FBI Witness Protection Program and is working with the Feds and the CIA to catch an Arab terrorist group trying to employ the Mafia in a money-laundering scheme.

Richard says…
The character Holly Barker adds a female balance to Stone Barrington…bold, reckless, audacious and beyond, Florida police chief with cajones. She does add another dimension  to the Woods’ novel, if that is possible. Still, classic Woods…no mind, lie on the chaise or as Woods would put it, lay on the chaise, and be entertained.
