When his plane exploded off the coast of Maine, authorities thought they had seen the last of Teddy Fay, the ex-CIA tech wizard who kills his political targets for sport. But now they've found irrefutable evidence that he is alive and up to his old tricks.

Now working for the CIA, ex-chief-of-police Holly Barker joins the elite task force tracking Fay in New York City. As he begins to pick off America's enemies one by one, Holly unexpectedly finds herself face-to-face with the killer, kick-starting a high-speed chase through the canyons of midtown Manhattan, the Metropolitan Opera house, Central Park, and the United Nations Plaza, all to prevent another assassination before Fay disappears again, maybe this time for good.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nancy | 2/18/2014

    " It took me awhile to get into this book. It had been awhile since I had read any of the 'Holly Baker' series. I really enjoyed this book. I like the way Stuart Woods left this book open at the end. Like he was going to continue this story line in some way. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Amy | 2/17/2014

    " Fast moving account of Holly Barker's first case with the CIA. Teddy, the ex-CIA agent, is on the loose killing Middle Eastern diplomats. Easy to read but much of the storyline and dialogue is unbelievable, and pretty silly. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Choopie | 2/16/2014

    " his female protagonist is just the female version of Mr Barrington. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sara Russo | 2/16/2014

    " This was my first Holly Barker book and I did like her character and the setting for this book, but the ending disappointed me. I kept thinking there would be more. This is not my favorite Stuart Woods' book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joe O'c | 1/28/2014

    " Excellent; Continuing character: Holly Barker; Holly joins the CIA, goes through training, and then is part of a team tracking an ex-CIA agent who is killing American enemies in New York "

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

    " Duplicated entry because book is in multiple series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ms. Rhonda | 1/20/2014

    " I love a good "girl kicks ass" book, movie, whatev.. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ann | 1/10/2014

    " I like all his books. This was great! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Phil | 1/8/2014

    " I really enjoyed reading this book. It was super interesting with short chapters that keep you reading just a bit more... a bit more... Highly recommended. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jackie Wolfred | 1/3/2014

    " Another one read in one day. Hard to put down. Love page turners. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ralph McEwen | 12/30/2013

    " Another fun read by Mr. Woods. Of course almost everybody (good guys and bad guys) get laid and there are many action scenes. This is almost an easy reader for the action / adventure readers. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rebecca | 12/9/2013

    " I finished this book up on CD this week to and from school. It was ok for what it was--a spy mystery set in DC and NYC. I would have preferred a different ending, but it was entertaining and kept me distracted during the drive. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Betty410 | 12/3/2013

    " Our leading character, Holly Barker is chasing the ex-CIA agent/ murderer who targets enemies of our government that said government can't do in because of diplomatic restraints. Teddy Fey is very smart and elusive. the author has missed him in a few books and that keeps up the interest. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vicky Beltz | 11/28/2013

    " Holly is after a master of disguise, again. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sandy | 7/16/2013

    " This was the first book I've read by Stuart Woods. I really liked it and plan to read more in the series. I would recommend it - this particular one was cat and mouse man hunt between FBI and CIA. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy Winkler | 3/3/2013

    " I love the way he writes, he is a good story teller. "

    " I agree - amusing, but nothing special "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 lynn | 1/11/2013

    " Quick read, not much to challenge your brain but a fairly good detective/espionage book to clear your head between more serious reads. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Deejay Gardner | 11/14/2012

    " Unimaginative and boring "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carolyn Harris | 3/23/2012

    " Another easy read in the Holly Barker series. Moves along fast. This isn't the type of book I usually read, but I enjoyed it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Renee | 2/11/2012

    " This one had a few familiar faces and the return of Holly's Dad. Always the mystery and humor we expect from them. Another score for Stuart Woods "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Seestars | 10/3/2011

    " This was a fun book to listen to on CD. Pretty standard fare for a cat and mouse with a few nice twists. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Randy | 9/4/2011

    " Now working for the CIA, and with Stone Barrington as a sometimes boy friend, Holly Barker is after Teddy-Fae, a self styled patriot who's knocking off crooked politicians. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa | 1/24/2011

    " As always to good to put down. Very intriguing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andrea | 1/10/2011

    " Although these books by Woods clearly have a male fantasy version of a female police officer, I have enjoyed them. Iron Orchid was better than the last two-more focus on Holly's experience becoming a CIA operative and security issues in general, and less on sex. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Betty | 1/7/2011

    " I enjoyed it. I was entertaining to listen to while driving. Easy to pick up the story from drive to drive. "

    " One of Woods' better novels with a great twist at the end. "
