Stone Barrington (#7) goes to Palm Beach to track down a mysterious woman for a major client of his affiliated law firm. While living comfortably on a boat, with a beautiful woman to keep him warm, he is barraged by his past girlfrends, Arrington, Dolce, and Allison Manning. Allison Manning finally gets her comeuppance.
Enjoyed as always. The earlier Barrington books seem to have more mystery and more in depth bedroom romance than the current ones.
Double back to book 7 after completing all 40+, the story is still a fun read. At Palm Beach, Stone works the rich and famous once again as some familiar characters reappear. Notably, and as an aside, Dolce escapes from the booby hatch and is recaptured by some Gumbas sent by her Mafia-don father. The real plot; however, revolves around the return of a lover, previously deceased, and her engagement to a dot com zillionaire.Meanwhile, Stone hustles the cook, who miraculously lives through the experience. As I said, fun read!
Luxuriating in Palm Beach's winter month, Stone is stunned to recognize someone he thought was dead. Former client Alison Manning is alive and well - and suddenly very rich. Now she needs Stone's help in squaring a charge of insurance fraud that's been hanging over her head for years - and in getting rid of a recently acquired stalker. Suspects abound, including an elusive writer, an enigmatic businessman, and Alison's devious former husband. Only Stone can thwart the sly and greedy plan to steal the millions of dollars at stake - and the crafty killer behind it.

Stone Barrington (7)
Cop-turned-lawyer Stone Barrington, he of street smarts, dry wit, and debonair charm, becomes reacquainted with a case he thought was buried years ago, and must settle romantic entanglements that haunt him still. Allison Manning, the beautiful and enigmatic woman Stone defended against a murder charge in Dead in the Water, mysteriously reappears to request his help with a set of problems she has never resolved, which involve millions of dollars. She fears, too, that somebody might be stalking her, but she's not sure who - or why. She knows of no one better than Stone, who has both the legal experience and the investigative instincts to guarantee her safety. Stone is happy to enjoy a few days in Palm Beach - and to have left frigid New York and the tempestuous Dolce Bianchi behind - but before he can dig into this latest case, he comes face to face again with Arrington Calder, the one woman who still holds a key to his affections.Stone and his partner, Dino, comb the glittering streets of Palm Beach and begin to suspect that more than one person might be after Allison: one so clever he manages never to show his face, but even more frightening, another man everybody has long forgotten. In a search that ranges from the boardrooms of Manhattan to the sumptuous villas that line the Gold Coast, Stone uncovers the sly and greedy plan to steal millions of dollars - and reveals the crafty killer behind it - in this electrifying thriller.
