Stone Barrington’s newest client brings unexpected mayhem in the exciting new thriller from New York Times bestselling author Stuart Woods.

Stone is back in Manhattan and hard at work when he is visited by an unexpected new client, a gentleman who faces an unusual dilemma involving two million dollars that was stolen in a famous heist twenty years ago … and hasn’t been seen since. Stone dispenses appropriate legal advice and sends the man on his way, but it’s soon clear that Stone hasn’t seen the end of this case. Several people—from government officials to a seedy group of criminals—are keenly interested in this gentleman’s activities, and some of them will stop at nothing to find him … and the money.
