Stone Barrington is enjoying his usual dinner at Elaine's when his boss at Woodman & Weld, the law firm where Stone is "of counsel", begins to talk about a partnership. It seems Stone's discreet handling of super-wealthy clients has earned him a place in the most elite of white-shoe law firms. But almost as soon as his elevation is mentioned, Stone gets wind of an impending scandal that could put some of New York's rich and powerful in financial peril. In a world of easy wealth, Park Avenue penthouses and society galas, Stone Barrington is something of an outsider. . . but one who always knows exactly what his clients require. ( )

very disappointing... I remembered liking this series, better. dialog was stilted, storyline felt forced.. characters were stereotypes ( )

This is the 19th book in the Stone Barrington series -- they are fun reads, but one cannot place too much reality on them. Stone has many funny adventures and he gets himself into several amusing situations--in the middle of the book, a CIA protectee flies a Mercedes out the back of a privately owned C-17, the car lands in a swimming pool--the new client shows up at Stone's office the next day! Then Stone has more sex with another woman. Wood's Barrington novels are fairly unbelievable but that is part of the appeal. Where's number 20? ( )

Read this on the beach...moves quickly, and pretty fun to read. I seemed to be more into this Woods effort than previous Stone Barrington novels. ( )
