Palindrome—when both your past and future spell fear.

For years, Liz Barwick has been battered by her brutal husband, a famous pro football player. This time it takes an emergency room to keep her from death. Now the beautiful and talented photographer retreats to an island paradise off Georgia’s coast to find solitude—and herself.

As she becomes increasingly involved with the strange and handsome twin scions of the powerful Drummond family, she feels her traumatic memories begin to fade. But when a killer launches a series of gruesome murders, Liz discovers that there is no place to hide—not even in her lover’s arms.

Award-winning author Stuart Woods has crafted a masterful novel no reader will soon forget.

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carolyn Williams-walker | 2/12/2014

    " My hands down, absolute favorite book by Stuart Woods. The way he intricately weaved the story around this family, creating a true palindrome with the tale, had me instantly hooked. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ana Flor | 2/7/2014

    " through this book i learned the word palindrome... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bryant Whelan | 2/4/2014

    " This is the 2nd book I ever read by Stuart Woods, and in my opinion was his best. As he continued to write I read it all, and now the formulaic style of his books makes me skip them over in the new releases section at the library. I understand that he has to make a living and these write themselves, literally, but Palindrome shows the real talent. Don't let his current work keep you from checking this one out. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Ron | 1/16/2014

    " Nancy 5 stars; Ron no read (library book) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joe White | 1/14/2014

    " Somewhat unbelievable plot and characters, but not as bad as sci-fi. Action tempo kept pace up through end of book, without unrealistic physical shoot-ups. Too much evil infallible technique capability given to bad guy. Setting characters were stretched beyond psychological believability, and historical wealth, but did fit nicely as background and secondary story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rae | 1/4/2014

    " Liz Barwick, an abused wife, takes refuge from her husband on an Eden-like island (Cumberland Island off Georgia) and her life becomes intertwined with the owners (Drummonds). "

    " I would give this 3.5 stars if I could. I liked the descriptions of Cumberland Island and the character of Angus Drummond. I'm not sure if I would have liked it more if the story had been fleshed more or if it had been more condensed. It wasn't bad but it wasn't completely fulfilling either. "

    " This is one of my favorite books by Stuart and while he is one of my all time favorite writers, I think I'm a bit burned. Maybe just envious of someone that can churn out a book every seven months. This is not a Stone Barrington or Wil Lee book and it's really rather fascinating. "
