Unnatural Acts (Stone Barrington Novels)by Stuart Woods
Synopses & Reviews
and#160;Stuart Woods is in top formandhellip;and so is his perennially popular hero, Stone Barrington!
When a hedge fund billionaire hires Stone Barrington to talk some sense into his wayward son, it seems like an easy enough job; no one knows the hidden sins and temptations of the ultra-wealthy better than Stone. But as Stone and his erstwhile protandeacute;gandeacute;, Herbie Fisher, probe deeper into the caseandmdash;and an old one comes back to haunt him---he realizes that even he may have underestimated just how far some people will go to cover up their crimesandhellip;and plan new ones.
From Manhattanandrsquo;s mahogany-paneled law offices to its modern penthouse lofts and dimly lit nightclubs, the trail of entrapment and murder leads to a shocking act that no one could ever have anticipated.
"The closing of Manhattan's real-life Elaine's restaurant kicks off bestseller Woods's 23rd Stone Barrington novel (after D.C. Dead), in which the usual cast overcome whatever obstacles fate places in their way with an appealing and inspiring insouciance. Barrington, partner in the prestigious law firm Woodman & Weld, plays a mostly subsidiary, advisory role, while once inept and bumbling Herbie Fisher continues his transition to rainmaking senior associate in the same firm. Fisher has numerous new tasks, including dealing with the sociopathic son of a wealthy investor and helping transform a fledgling software company into a major player. Meanwhile, Barrington's best friend, NYPD Lt. Dino Bacchetti, can't bring himself to arrest or turn in former assistant FBI director Shelley Bach, who's both a serial killer and a fantastic lover. Woods's well-tested formula ensures that the action purrs along fueled by good food, good liquor, good sex, and plenty of wealth. Agent: Anne Sibbald, Janklow & Nesbit."
