Publisher Comments:

In the newest addition to the bestselling series, Stone Barrington and Holly Barker pursue a master spy and murderer in a tropical paradise where very little is as it seems

Review:

"Tony Roberts shows off his comedic and dramatic skills in Woods's newest addition to the Stone Barrington saga. The elegant cop-turned-lawyer's new adventure has a welcome lightheartedness. He, his crime-fighting paramour, Holly, and their friends Dino and Genevieve fly to the Caribbean island of St. Marks on a sub-rosa assignment from the CIA to find a homicidal rogue agent rumored to be living in disguise on the island paradise. Woods and Roberts guide us through what turns out to be mainly a lovely vacation for the quartet — with cocktails, elaborate dinners and brisk swims along sparkling white sandy nude beaches marred by an assassination or two and a few anxious moments at the hands of the island's police chiefs. The result is more diverting than thrilling, with Roberts adding considerably to the overall entertainment value via his sly use of amusing British, French and clipped East Coast American accents. One of the nasty police chiefs, for example, sounds suspiciously like Peter Sellers's irrepressible Inspector Clouseau. Simultaneous release with Putnam hardcover (Reviews, Aug. 6). (Oct.)"

It was very cool to get an advance copy of the new Stone Barrington novel. I felt like I was cheating getting to read it before everyone else! This time out Stone and Holly are on the trail of a rogue CIA agent who has become a hired assassin. This thriller has a kick back feel as the setting is on a sunny Carribean island. I enjoyed the island stew of characters from the upper crusts who run the show to eccentric expats. Having traveled to St. Marks I can tell you the Woods nailed the setting and the populace. The story takes its time getting rolling but the pacing towards the end is perfect. A fun, laid back thrill ride through the Carribean! For another Tropical adventure thriller I highly recommend "TOURIST IN THE YUCTAN" This Indie published hit deserves
