Aptly titled, Stone Barrington gets a new client, Carrie Fiske, who is worried that her ex-husband is going to kill her. After she hires, sleeps with Stone, and leaves him in charge of her dog, she is killed. As the heir to a fortune of a tire company, her vast holdings include a storied necklace, made famous in Gustav Klimt’s famous painting, “Woman in Gold.” Fred, Joan, Dino, Viv, Holly Barker, Lance Cabot, and the President are in the story. I thought the ending a bit trite, as if such a thing is even possible for a Stuart Woods novel. ( )

Another fun and quick read. Glad Woods have a couple of Barrington books out each year. ( )

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. ( )
