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.
