Typical Stuart Woods -- light story, way more sexual relations than possible for a normal person, and a ridiculous adventure. This one involved a British operative searching for someone who left the British service 10 years earlier. Seems he was involved with the daughter of one of the British ministers. ( )

This plot includes spies and counter-spies. Meets Dino at Elaine's every nite, has a long affair with dame Felicity, who survives the book to play again.

Loose ends in the larger circle get tied up. Fun read--don't get too much into realism with the Barrington series. ( )

One of the better Stone Barrington books, this one had a fairly intriguing plot with somewhat less pretentious characters. Keeps you guessing until the end.... ( )
