Will Lee ran from a life of Southern wealth and privilege to spend a peaceful summer on the coast of Ireland, but there is no peace in this beautiful, troubled land…

Restless and dissatisfied, Will dreams of shipbuilding and sailing on crystal-blue waters. Then an explosion of senseless violence drags the young American drifter into a lethal game of terror and revenge, for the fires of hatred rage unchecked in this place of lush, rolling hills and deadly secrets. Now Will Lee must run for his life from a bloody past that is not his own—and he will find no sanctuary on the rolling waves of the Irish sea.

Stuart Woods offers listeners another breathtaking novel of suspense and high adventure.

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andrea Zimmer | 2/11/2014

    " Excellent 'coming of age' story featuring love/stress and a lot of sailing. One of the early books by Stuart Woods... and definitely one of the best. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cheryl | 1/27/2014

    " Good light read. Just as I like them between deeper books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Randy | 1/14/2014

    " The most consistently good of his many series. Begun in his first novel, Chiefs, these tales are of the Lee family and one member, Will, in his rise to the Presidency and his wife as head of the CIA. "

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

    " Have read most of Stuart Wood books and this book is the Lee series. Very enjoyable. Learned a lot about sailing and really enjoyed! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laurie | 1/2/2014

    " I enjoyed this book - just enough details about sailing without being overly heavy on technical jargon. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kevin L. | 12/21/2013

    " This book began somewhat slowly, but I'm glad I chose to see it through. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Charlie | 12/15/2013

    " I have enjoyed reading this book a second time in two years. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Judith Wrinkle | 12/7/2013

    " Not so interesting to me, as I am not into boating. Ad lot of adjectives, too many for my liking. Much about boating, and though a decent mystery, too much boating info for my interest. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Debra Walke | 12/3/2013

    " I stopped halfway through this book. Boring. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christi | 10/15/2013

    " This one has grabbed me right away! I always love Stuart Woods and this was one of his original works and you can totally tell a difference. I can't wait to continue reading about this character - Will Lee. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cynthia | 7/11/2013

    " 2 1/2 out of 4 stars "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Donna Schmitt | 6/29/2013

    " This book was ok, just not as face-paced or action-packed as I like for a suspense novel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Glenda L | 6/27/2013

    " This is one of the earlier books by Stuart Woods ... this is about Will Lee's father. A novel full of suspense and high adventure by one of the greatest story tellers there is. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Travis | 4/11/2013

    " I liked this book because it combined my love of the sea and my need for fast paced action. You get a first hand look at what goes into those big sailboats along with international criminals trying to kill you and a mysterious helper. Enjoy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mike | 3/7/2013

    " Actually I would award this three-and-a-half stars. And for me it follows in a trend I've been noticing while reading Stuart Woods murder/mysteries (for "light" fare) --- namely, that his earlier books (this one dates to 1983) have more substance to them than more current ones. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kt. | 3/3/2013

    " Will Lee series. VERY interesting voyeuristic view of an election. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Larry | 1/9/2013

    " Very good book. Complex story about a young man on a long trip in Europe travelling, sailing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rita L | 12/16/2012

    " A fun read - written a few years back. Yachting, shipbuilding,Irish conflicts, terrorist activity, young guy in over his head, lots of good stuff. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mike French | 11/16/2012

    " Chiefs was one of the first Stuart Woods I read. I loved it and I loved this one also. Going to read the entire Will Lee series now as I have read all the other series. Stone Barringtonis my favorite, but Will Lee is a close second! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elizabeth Owosina | 10/21/2012

    " One of the better Stuart Woods books I've read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa Vale | 9/29/2012

    " One of Woods earlier books, it really is a delight....fun, adventuresome...he surely put more time into writing this then later works... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Penny | 9/13/2012

    " This book and Chiefs are by far his best books and "Run Before the Wind" is my favorite. Will Lee is also my favorite of all Woods' main characters. In this novel "A young law student visiting his grandfather in Ireland inadvertently becomes involved with the Irish Republican Army." "
