Cop-turned-investigator Stone Barrington has the street-smarts, dry
wit, and debonair charm his fans love, and Palm Beach -- the
setting of his new adventure -- is his most glamorous
scene-of-the-crime yet. In Cold Paradise
he becomes reacquainted with a case he thought was buried years ago
-- and must settle romantic entanglements that haunt him still.
Luxuriating in the winter warmth of a Palm Beach cafe, Stone is
stunned to recognize someone he thought was dead: the beautiful
Allison Manning, a woman he had defended against a murder charge on
a Caribbean island in Dead in the Water. Allison is alive and well
-- and suddenly very rich. And she needs a favour: Might Stone help
her square a charge of insurance fraud that's been hanging over her
head for years?
Stuart Woods is the author of twenty-one
