Stone Barrington takes on a scheming rebel in this latest action-packed thriller from #1 New York Times-bestselling author Stuart Woods.
Upon returning to New York City after a whirlwind British excursion, Stone Barrington is notified of a delicate situation within the country’s administration. A close friend, CIA director Lance Cabot, requires his expertise and subtlety to eradicate a destructive presence in a classified agency – only it soon becomes clear that this renegade was sent be a rival Stone has encountered before. There is a Russian mole working in the State Department, and Stone is required to help to expose that person.
However, Stone has other things in mind as well, when airplane broker Callie Stevens gets him to buy a private jet which is better than what he currently has, except things go wry when Callie’s ex-husband causes mayhem with and on the plane to get back at her.
From the City of Lights to the rocky Maine coastline, Stone will need to summon all his wit and daring to halt the audacious plots threatening to reveal confidential intel, and catch the evasive traitor at last. This enemy may be equipped with unlimited resources and devious schemes, but if Stone remains vigilant, justice may finally prevail.
