Another Stone Barrington tale filled with a fair amount of quid pro quo comeuppance between Stone and the bad guys. Readers will find much to appreciate in this latest tale as the plot twists and turns lead to some unexpected events.

A quick, easy . . . and thoroughly enjoyable . . . read.

Highly recommended. ( )

From The Book:
Stone Barrington is enjoying a boating excursion off the Maine coast when a chance encounter leaves him somewhat the worse for wear. Always able to find the silver lining in even the unhappiest circumstances, Stone is pleased to discover that the authors of his misfortune are, in fact, members of a prestigious family who present a unique business opportunity, and who require a man of Stone’s skills to overcome a sticky situation of their own.

The acquaintance is fortuitous indeed, for as it turns out, Stone and his new friends have an enemy in common. He’s the sort of man who prefers force to finesse, and who regards any professional defeat as a personal and intolerable insult. And when Stone’s sly cunning collides with his adversary’s hair-trigger-temper, the results are sure to be explosive.

My Thoughts:
I learned about book #20 that you just have to suspend your disbelief and go along with the richer than God people and multi-talented...highly connected characters in the story line. Once you get past wondering if this is how the other half really lives, the books are "entertaining" for lack of a better description.

The plot and the characters do keep you reading "just one more chapter" until you find that you have not only read the "one more chapter" but that you have finished the book. some reviewers said that if you had read one Stone Barrington book you have read them all...I can't exactly dispute that statement but I do feel that the regular characters in the 37 books have been fascinating in the same way that a well loved and slightly eccentric family member would be.
