Stone Barrington’s newest client seems to be a magnet for trouble. A poised lady of considerable wealth, she’s looking for help discouraging the attentions of a tenacious gentleman. But no sooner does Stone fend off the party in question than his client becomes involved in two lethal crimes.

With suspects aplenty, Stone must probe deep into his client’s life to find the truth, and he discovers that the heart of the mystery may be a famous missing piece of history, a stunningly beautiful vestige of a bygone era. It’s a piece with a long and storied past and untold value . . . the kind of relic someone might kill to obtain.

Among the upper crust nearly everyone has buried a skeleton or two, and it will take all of Stone’s investigative powers to determine whose secrets are harmless, and whose are deadly. ( )

One of the more enjoyable Stone Barrington books of the recent past. This one is about a very valuable necklace, as well as a series of murders. Stone is,of course, caught up in all sorts of wealthy encounters. Naturally, it all turns out well for Stone in the end. ( )

This is one of the better Stone Barrington novels. I dunno why, just is. It includes characters from all his novel series. Ed Eagle, specifically, in Santa Fe. Holly Barkah and Kate & Will Lee. All, well integrated. There's a couple of murders, some special jewelry, and a high class crook. It even includes Rio Ariba county in New Mexico and includes the Sheriff, there. Barrington novels, like this one, are harmless good fun ( )

I guess that I have read about 10 or more books in the Stone Barrington series. This may be the last one I read. I have opined that this series is junk food for the reading palate. I did not find this book interesting at all. Disappointing. ( )

Always entertaining; Stone dines, flies, drinks well and beds most of the available women with his usual insouciance. Frau Goring's necklace becomes the focus of much research and attention as it is pursued, stolen and finally recovered from the guacamole. An excellent vacation weekend book from a fun series. ( )
