Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Stone Barrington investigates the secrets of a CIA officer's suicide in this next thriller in the bestselling series Stuart Woods's newest bestseller, Dark Harbor, brings us the perfect mix of sexy intrigue and swift suspense that have earned him legions of fans over the years. In this latest thriller, Stone enters the picturesque town Dark Harbor off the coast of Maine, where the shocking deaths of three people have cast a long shadow over this island haven — a locale as mysterious as it is exclusive.

Stone Barrington hasn't heard from his cousin, Dick Stone, in years — though he has fond memories of a teenage summer spent at his house in Maine. Then, Lance Cabot of the CIA interrupts an otherwise pleasant meal at Elaine's with news of Dick's death — apparently by his own hands. It seems that Dick Stone, a quiet family man who doubled as a CIA agent, methodically executed his wife, daughter, and then himself — or did he? What would cause a loving father and husband to murder his family as they slept? Before his death, Dick had appointed Stone executor of his will, giving him full control of the disposition of a sizable family estate. Was Dick preparing for his suicide, or forewarning Stone of his murder?

With the help of his ex-partner, Dino, and his friend Holly Barker, Stone must settle the estate and piece together the elusive facts of his cousin's life and death as a CIA operative. At every step Stone knows he is being watched by Dick's family — and one of them just may be a killer.

Review:

"Bestseller Woods's tepid 12th Stone Barrington novel finds the New York lawyer taking a much-needed working vacation after the deadly trials and tribulations of the action-packed Two-Dollar Bill (2005). Stone has inherited a house on the island of Dark Harbor, Maine, from his first cousin Dick after Dick and his family have been shot in what the local constabulary thinks is a murder/suicide. Of course it isn't, and Stone, along with series regulars NYPD Lt. Dino Bacchetti, CIA agent Lance Cabot and lover Holly Barker, goes to Maine to look into the deaths. Stone is never in real danger, though once again it becomes clear that women who sleep with him run a good chance of being captured and held hostage until Stone and his posse can ride to the rescue. Fans will be happy to learn that Dino is finally free of his problematic wife; Holly is still crazy about Stone; and Arrington, the mother of Stone's son, brushes off a scary domestic plot twist introduced in Two-Dollar Bill. One hopes that a well-rested Stone will spring back into more serious action in his next adventure." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Review:

"Dark Harbor is weaker than earlier entries in the series because Stone has too little to do, and, despite some red herrings, it is relatively easy to figure out who committed the crimes." Library Journal

Review:

"In the hands of a lesser writer, some of these plot strands would eventually lead somewhere. Here, they tail off into more murder and a single kidnapping. Bet you can't guess who's kidnapped." Kirkus Reviews
