Stone Barrington is lured from Elaine's to New England, and the genteel but cut-throat world of priceless antiques, historic homes, and lavish country estates. In a place dominated by bluebloods and their inherited wealth, along with the nouveau riche, there are surprisingly few rules of engagement, and Stone finds himself navigating a dangerous course, one where even the most expensive and sought-after status symbols are sometimes stolen and sokmetimes clever fakes, though no less priceless.

Why do I keep reading this drivel? This time, our hero is trying to solve a counterfeit antique furniture case. Who knew there is such a market? Or, that someone would be murdered over it. He beds one or two women, who happen to live after the experience (not all do). The characters are familiar, this is book #15--they ought to be. The plot is intriguing, characters just engaging enough to keep my interest-where's book #16? ( )

Beach book. This was a quick read, but just sort of rambled all over the place. The ending tied some things up and probably overall saved the book, but I honestly don't think I could recommend this to anyone. ( )

Although I normally get excited with Stone Barrington's escapades this one, which takes place in New England just didn't do it for me. He should stay in NYC. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0399155155, Hardcover)

One night at Elaine’s, Stone Barrington—back in Manhattan after chasing down the bad guys in the Caribbean—meets Barton Cabot, older brother of his sometime ally, CIA boss Lance Cabot. Barton’s career in army intelligence is even more top secret than his brother’s, but he’s suffering from amnesia following a random act of violence. Amnesia is a dangerous thing in a man whose memory is chockfull of state secrets, so Lance hires Stone to watch Barton’s back. As Stone discovers, Barton is a spy with a rather unusual hobby: building and restoring antique furniture. The genteel world of antiques and coin dealers at first seems a far cry from Stone’s usual underworld of mobsters, murderers, and spies. But Barton also is a man with a past, and one event in particular— in the jungles of Vietnam more than thirty years earlier— is coming back to haunt his present in ways he’d never expected. Stone soon finds out that Barton, and some shady characters of his acquaintance, may be hiding a lot more than just a few forged antiques.
