Strategic Moves (Stone Barrington Novels)by Stuart Woods
Synopses & Reviews
Stone Barrington is back in the newest edge-of-your-seat adventure in the New York Timesbestselling series.
Stone Barringtons newest client does not seem the type to bring mayhem in his wake. A polite, well-deported gentleman, he comes to Stone seeking legal expertise on an unusual—and potentially lucrative—dilemma. Stone points him in the right direction and sends him on his way, but its soon clear Stone hasnt seen the end of the case. Several people are keenly interested in this gentlemans activities and how they may relate to a long-ago crime . . . and some of them will stop at nothing to find the information they desire.
On a hunt that leads from Floridas tropical beaches to the posh vacation homes of the Northeast, Stone finds himself walking a tightrope between ambitious authorities and seedy lowlifes who all have the same prize in their sights. In this cutthroat contest of wills, its winner-takes-all . . . and Stone will need every bit of his cunning and resourcefulness to be the last man standing.
"At the start of Woods's routine 19th novel featuring lawyer and man of action Stone Barrington (after Lucid Intervals), Barrington has a lot to celebrate: he's received a million bonus from Woodman & Weld, the prestigious New York City law firm of which he's 'of counsel'; he can expect to make partner in the firm within a year; and he meets a beautiful widow, whom he's soon romancing. A murder close to home and a request from the CIA to help transport a fugitive, Erwin Gelbhardt, from Spain to the U.S., bring him back to earth. Gelbhardt, who becomes Barrington's client, reveals he knows the whereabouts of Osama bin Laden, but as the attorney works to get him the best possible deal from the American government, the bin Laden business goes nowhere. Newcomers may find Barrington an emotionally shallow cipher, while certain details, like the British government in the age of the Internet trying to suppress a story by banning sales of the New York Times, may strike others as less than credible. (Jan.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)
Stone Barrington's undercover dealings with MI6 have brought in a big new client for the Woodman & Weld law firm, and the firm is willing to pay Stone a huge bonus and make him a partner. But Stone gets wind of an impending scandal that might torpedo his big promotion.
