Stone Barrington embarks on his most dangerous adventure yet when he
takes on a job as a lawyer for a sleazy and clueless con man and ends up
getting embroiled in the underworld of the New York Mafia. It started

porterhouse steak and enjoying the company of his friends. But when
Herbie Fisher, a notoriously not-so-sharp swindler, walked in, the
pleasant atmosphere turned to ice.
Herbie convinces Bill Eggers, the
managing partner of Woodman & Weld, to sign him on as a client, with
the goal of taking down the infamous Mafia boss Carmine Datilla. And

the Mafia, for that matter—he is soon coerced into being Herbie’s
With the help of his ex-partner, Dino, Stone investigates “Datilla the Hun”, and the rest of the mob family, encountering
intrigue and danger at every turn. Will Stone finally take a stand, or
will he end up at the bottom of Sheepshead Bay?
