About the author

Biography of Woods, Stuart

Stuart Woods was born in Manchester, Georgia on January 9, 1938. He received a BA in sociology from the University of Georgia in 1959. He worked in the advertising business and eventually wrote two non-fiction books: Blue Water, Green Skipper and A Romantic's Guide to the Country Inns of Britain and Ireland. His first novel, Chiefs, was published in March 1981. It won an Edgar Award and was made into a TV miniseries starring Charlton Heston.

His other works include the Stone Barrington series, the Holly Barker series, the Will Lee series, the Ed Eagle series, and the Rick Barron series. He won France's Prix de Literature Policiere for Imperfect Strangers. Currently, two of his novels, Under the Lake and White Cargo are under development as feature films.


Review by Library Journal (2012-09-15)

In the 23rd Stone Barrington mystery, the attorney takes a backseat to his best friend Dino Bacchetti of the NYPD, who is knowingly dating a serial killer, and his young colleague Herbie Fisher, who is asked to look after the interests of a spoiled sociopath, arguably the most repellent character in this series. After considerable treading of water, the various strands of the plot are resolved in two well-handled action scenes. That none of the dangers faced here is regarded as more serious than finding a place to have dinner after the closing of Stone's beloved Elaine's is part of the charm of these tales.

Verdict: As always, Tony Roberts offers an inspired reading, supplying nuances for each protagonist. Although some readers may find the story slow to evolve, fans of the series should enjoy.

Book description

When a hedge-fund billionaire hires Stone Barrington and Holly Barker to track down his missing son it seems like a fairly open-and-shut case for the private eye and the CIA agent. But they never expected that a simple missing-persons case would lead to one of the most wanted men in the world as they come face-to-face with a dangerous international criminal from their past.
