Doing Hard Time (Stone Barrington Novels)by Stuart Woods
Synopses & Reviews
Nothing comes easy for Stone Barrington in this riveting novel from New York Times bestselling author Stuart Woods.
When Stone Barrington embarks on a trip to Bel-Air to check in on some business and personal concerns, he expects a relaxing break from the fast pace and mean streets of New York. But trouble never takes a vacation, and it has a way of finding Stone. A case that had seemingly been resolved has returned in full force—with lethal results. And this deadly situation makes for strange bedfellows when Stone finds himself teamed with the least likely ally a gentleman of unique abilities, who can fly below the radar and above the law.
From the high-stakes poker tables of Las Vegas to Californias lush beachside resorts, the trail of disguise, subterfuge, and murder leads to a shocking conclusion.
"Edgar-winner Woods's smooth 27th Stone Barrington novel (after Unintended Consequences) takes the New York City attorney to Los Angeles, where Stone's son, Peter; Peter's girlfriend, Hattie Patrick; and friend Dino Bacchetti's son, Benito, are headed to begin work on their first film for Centurion Studios after graduating from the Yale School of Drama. Two assassins, dispatched by Yuri Majorov, a powerful Russian, are tailing the young people on their drive west, but fugitive and ex-CIA employee Teddy Fay, who's lying low as a gas station attendant in a small New Mexico town, ensures the thugs do no harm. Stone and Fay, who crossed paths once before, form an unlikely alliance as Majorov continues to send operatives to find and eliminate both Fay and the Barringtons for interfering with his various plans. Stone — wealthy, handsome, and suave — displays a father's ruthless streak to protect Peter, while Fay brings a welcome gritty edge to his crowd-pleasing series. Agent: Anne Sibbald, Janklow & Nesbit." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
