Cop-turned-investigator Stone Barrington returns in this eighth adventure following his biggest New York Times bestseller yet, last season's Cold Paradise. Stone's new client, John Bartholomew, asks Stone to fly to London in search of a young woman whom he suspects has taken up with a mysterious character. Bartholomew asks Stone to see what he can find to discredit the man, Cabot, which seems a simple enough task, and Stone is eager to spend time in London and with his friend Sarah Buckminster. What Stone finds is more bizarre than he had expected. The woman in question isn't related to Bartholomew in quite the way he had implied. And it appears that Bartholomew and Cabot, who once worked together on a secretive assignment, now have very different versions of what went wrong. When Stone himself is implicated in a shocking double murder, he and his partner, Dino, know they have stepped into a strange case unlike any other.… (més)

A quick, fun read. Stone's assignment--find his mysterious new client's missing niece who is somewhere in London. Oh, and this novel has the usual Stone Barrington action and excitement with more than just a touch of sexual intrigue. In addition to Stone and Dino, Carpenter and Lance Cabot are introduced for further use in the series. ( )

Stone Barrington is new to me. I wasn’t prepared for his willingness to trust people so much and he seemed a bit naïve but also had an odd way of viewing life. At the beginning of the story, he is enjoying some whiskey and waiting in eager anticipation for a woman that he used to live with. That is woman is Callie who pops in and tells him that she is getting married next weekend. She admits he has money but that is not all of it!

Stone get hired by a man named John Bartholomew. The first thing, I thought, when I heard that name was “Where have I heard that name before?” Stone’s assignment is to go to England and bring back Mr. Bartholomew’s niece, Erica Burrows. She is gaga over Lance Cabot and her uncle does not want her to end up in a British prison. Mr. Bartholomew thinks that Lance Cabot is up to no good. Mr. Bartholomew seems to be very wealthy, at least he spends money as if he is. Stone takes the case and uncovers a money making mess with people from the Middle East, art and other secrets.

What I like the most is the humor, I had to laugh quite a bit while listening. I did not think that the lovemaking scenes were necessary. Listening to this audio book was like enjoying an old black and white comedy/mystery. I felt truly entertained. So humor rather than the mystery is key. ( )
