A Stone Barrington Novel
Stuart Woods

A hefty load of cash plays a big role in Woods' latest Stone Barrington novel (after Unintended Consequences, 2013). When ex-con John Fratelli seeks legal advice about the $2 million his cellmate bequeathed him, Stone helps him around the illegalities since the money was stolen in a robbery. Once Fratelli skips town, Stone never imagines that he'll get wrapped up in a dogged pursuit of the money. But soon an ex-cop, the Secret Service, and a thug are questioning him about its whereabouts. Stone need every bit of his resourcefulness to be the last man standing.
