When Stone Barrington takes on a wealthy heiress as his client, he finds himself handling a whole lot of trouble in this “this glossy, modern take on the classic detective story” (Publishers Weekly).
 
Stone Barrington’s newest client is a poised lady of considerable wealth who’s looking for help discouraging the attentions of a tenacious gentleman. But no sooner does Stone fend off the offensive party than his client becomes involved in two lethal crimes. With suspects aplenty, Stone probes deep into his client’s life to find the truth, and he discovers that the heart of the mystery may be a stunningly beautiful vestige of a bygone era. It’s a piece with a long and storied past and untold value...the kind of relic someone might kill for. Among the upper crust nearly everyone has buried a skeleton or two, and it will take all of Stone’s investigative powers to determine whose secrets are harmless, and whose are deadly.

    " I have read or listened to just about everything Stuart Woods has written. I love listening to Tony Roberts read his books. I thought I had seen everything Woods had in his writing arsenal until I listened to Family Jewels. More twists and turns than a back road in Delano, GA. Stone Barrington gets to do the right thing even though people try to stop him from doing it. Roberts command of voices is excellent, too. I can see Dino Bachetti when I hear Roberts do his voice. "
