Stone Barrington is back in the newest edge-of-your-seat adventure in the New York Times–bestselling series.

Stone Barrington's newest client does not seem the type to bring mayhem in his wake. A polite, well-deported gentleman, he comes to Stone seeking legal expertise on an unusual—and potentially lucrative—dilemma. Stone points him in the right direction and sends him on his way, but it's soon clear Stone hasn't seen the end of the case. Several people are keenly interested in this gentleman's activities and how they may relate to a long-ago crime . . . and some of them will stop at nothing to find the information they desire. 

On a hunt that leads from Florida's tropical beaches to the posh vacation homes of the Northeast, Stone finds himself walking a tightrope between ambitious authorities and seedy lowlifes who all have the same prize in their sights. In this cutthroat contest of wills, it's winner-takes-all . . . and Stone will need every bit of his cunning and resourcefulness to be the last man standing.

Read from the Book

1 Stone Barrington made it from his bed to his desk by ten AM, after something of a struggle with jet lag. Granted, the three-hour time change between Los Angeles and New York was not a killer, but it mattered. As soon as he sat down his intercom buzzed. “Yes?” he said to his secretary, Joan Robertson. “You have a visitor,” she said, “name of John Fratelli. Says he’s a friend of Eduardo.” “Send him in,” Stone said. Any friend of Eduardo Bianci’s was a friend of his. A vision of the mid-to-late twentieth century appeared in the doorway. “Mr. Barrington? May I come in?” “Of course,” Stone said, rising to greet his visitor, who was wearing a boxy, light gray flannel suit, a starched white shirt, and what appeared to be a clip-on bow tie. He was carrying a salesman’s suitcase and a porkpie hat and had a haircut that had probably been accomplished entirely with electric clippers—short sides and a Brylcreemed top. “Come in and have a seat, Mr. Fratelli.” “Thank you,” the man replied. “It’s nice of you to see me.” This was delivered in what appeared to be an old-fashioned Brooklyn accent, the likes of which had not been heard for many years from a man as young as Fratelli, who appeared to be no older than fifty.
