Stone Barrington returns in a stunning new thriller

Stone Barrington is back in Manhattan and pleased to receive an unexpected visit from his friend and sometimes lover Holly Barker, now an assistant director at the CIA. For her part, Holly is glad to leave the staid, official environs of the capital for the dining and atmosphere of New York, but her sojourn isn’t only for pleasure. An explosive incident requires her immediate attention—and Stone’s investigative expertise.

But what initially appears to be a clear-cut case soon becomes increasingly complex—and dangerous. For in the secretive world of government intelligence, national interests all too often conflict with power grabs and turf wars, and extreme wealth allows even the most pursued rivals to slip through the cracks. As Stone and Holly follow the trail from London’s posh embassy district to Manhattan’s Upper East Side, they learn just how well the most cunning plans can be disguised … and how far some people will go to wreak vengeance.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karen | 2/14/2014

    " Another great Stone Barrington book as Stone and Holly track a terrorist in London and New York. I love the way the characters from all three series now work together. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rita | 2/11/2014

    " after all these years it is good to see Stone settling down. However I must have missed what happened with Elaine's restaurant and Elaine.... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael | 2/9/2014

    " i've been a little worried lately about Stuart Woods' books. He's churning them out at a faster rate these days. I no longer read a former favorite author, James Patterson, who churned out book after book with diminishing quality. However, Mr. Woods seems to be holding his own. These are just fun books to read, and I hope I never get tired of them. Collateral Damage is better than the last couple of books, and sets the stage for a lot more entertaining adventures for Stone and crew. I look forward to picking up the next novel in April. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mandy | 2/6/2014

    " Not good at all. The sentences were choppy which made it hard to read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gretchen | 2/4/2014

    " This book seems to tie up all the action from the previous two or three novels. I didn't like it as well as the others. There was too much emphasis on the different intelligence organizations and what their jobs were and who was in charge of what. I did like, though, that all the former loose ends were tied up. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Skip | 2/4/2014

    " At the end of the last Stone Barrington, three of the four perpetrators are killed; however, Jasmine Shazaz decides to seek revenge by staging attacks on MI6 and the U.S. embassy in London and then the CIA office in NY. Holly Barker, Stone, Dino and his ex-cop girlfriend have to stop her. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Philip Cook | 2/2/2014

    " This was another decent book in the Stone Barrington series, but not the best. Maybe it is just because I really liked the books that talked about and included his and Dino's sons. If you were hoping for that in this book you will be disappointed. It is still worth reading, if like me, you are a fan of the series. The best thing about this series is that if you don't really like the one you just read in six months you can have another one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pat Minor | 1/22/2014

    " Hard to put down! Lots of action! I liked the character development and the continuation of the last book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Scott | 1/20/2014

    " Same as all ways, cheap, quick, easy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joan Mueller | 1/7/2014

    " A very wide range of travel with interesting terror plot. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Connie | 1/5/2014

    " With brothers killed in the nuclear incident in LA, their sister, Jasmine, Shazaz bomber #3, goes on a rampage of revenge. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hrn1947 | 12/27/2013

    " Good story. A continuation of the last book. Good ending! Everyone wins. This was more a holly book than a stone book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda Flues | 12/26/2013

    " Very interesting and moved along. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Burt | 12/23/2013

    " This is one of Woods better novels in the soap opera tradition. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brenda | 12/19/2013

    " Like his other books but a good read. Quick but entertaining. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Doug Branscombe | 12/11/2013

    " Another fun Stone Barrington novel. An al Queda operative is out for revenge after the rest of her cell are eliminated. She wreaks havoc in London and NYC where Holly Barker and Stone try to track her down. A fast paced exciting story, finished this in just a couple of days. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lindamac | 12/11/2013

    " A pretty good story. Less formulaic then past novels in this series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Natalie | 12/3/2013

    " I think I am done with S. Wood's books. It seems a great deal of the dialogue is niceties. Hello.....hello, good morning....good morning...good evening.....good evening. Maybe it is a good filler but it is something I have noticed in the last few books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Diane | 10/20/2013

    " Continue to love this series w/Stone Barrington character. Always an easy read that keeps my attention "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel | 10/14/2013

    " Stuart is always good! I like a little more Stone and a little less Holly though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bonnie | 10/12/2013

    " It was an okay book, but I probably won't run out to get another in the series. It seemed to read more like a romance novel. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Keri | 9/29/2013

    " A typical Stuart Woods read. Not as good as his earlier books with this character. He's one of my favorite authors, but his stories seem to be all the same anymore. Kind of bums me out, but for some reason I have to read his books when they come out. Does this make any sense?!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ruth | 9/8/2013

    " What I said about Severe Clear! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deb | 8/30/2013

    " Read it in one day. Same old same old. Comforting winter read on a rainy,cold day with a hot cup of tea! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marty Nyear | 6/21/2013

    " Woods finally got back to a book with a plot. He tries to mix Stone Barrington with the likes of Mitch Rapper. It's an ok read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sheila | 6/16/2013

    " Another GREAT Stone Barrington book! Mr. Woods keeps em coming! "

    " This is the Staurt Woods of old. A thousand times better than "Son of Stone". Not enough Dino, but still a great read. Fast action. Loved it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paul | 5/25/2013

    " Woods has honed his prose to hardboiled perfection. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marlene Arteta | 5/12/2013

    " Classic Stone. The only thing Woods does that bothers me is wraps up the ends so quickly. 200 page book and it's done in 10 quick pages.... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 April | 2/28/2013

    " Pretty unmememorable by the books thriller in typical Stone Barrington fashion. In this one, he and his CIA lady love are trying to get a female terrorist (sister of a terrorist killed in an earlier S.B. novel) before the terrorist gets them. NYC plays a big role. "
