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.
Stone Barrington is back in Manhattan and pleased to receive an unexpected visit from his friend and sometime lover Holly Barker, now an assistant director at the CIA. For her part, Holly is glad to leave the staid, official environs of the capital for the dining and atmosphere of New York, but her sojourn isn’t only for pleasure. An explosive incident requires her immediate attentionand Stone’s investigative expertise.
But what initially appears to be a clear-cut case soon becomes increasingly complexand dangerous. For in the secretive world of government intelligence, national interests all too often conflict with power grabs and turf wars, and extreme wealth allows even the most pursued rivals to slip through the cracks. As Stone and Holly follow the trail from London’s posh embassy district to Manhattan’s Upper East Side, they learn just how well the most cunning plans can be disguised... and how far some people will go to wreak vengeance.
