Two-Dollar Bill delivers all the storytelling twists and whip-smart banter readers have come to love in Stuart Woods’ thrillers. In this latest, Stone Barrington, the suave Manhattan cop-turned-lawyer, is back on his home turf facing down a brilliant Southern flimflam man.

The fun, and action, begins with what Stone believes will be a quiet dinner with his ex-partner, Dino, but they are interrupted by Billy Bob, a filthy rich, smooth-talkin’ Texan, who strolls in and parks himself at their table. He’s in town “to make money,” he says, unwrapping his wad of rare two-dollar bills, and in need of an attorney, namely, Stone, though he won’t say why or when such representation will be necessary. As they leave the restaurant, however, an unknown assailant shoots at Stone and his cohorts, and the wily Southerner has spread his two-dollar bills around to everyone like confetti.

Against his better judgment, Stone offers Billy Bob a safe haven for the night but almost immediately begins to suspect that he’s made several precipitous misjudgments, for the slippery out-of-towner has gone missing and someone has been found dead, in Stone’s townhouse no less. Stone is now caught between a beautiful federal prosecutor and a love from his past, a con man with more aliases than hairs on his head, and a murder investigation that could ruin them all.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elisabeth | 2/20/2014

    " This mystery has a touch of thriller in it as well. I enjoyed it, but it touched on a few themes (violence and overt sexuality) that would probably unsettle me if I read more Stone Barrington novels, so in all likelihood I won't. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gerald | 2/18/2014

    " Another entertaining Stone Barrington adventure. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen | 1/26/2014

    " I've always found Stuart Woods books to be highly entertaining and easy, quick reads. I picked this one up on a night when it was pouring rain outside and cold. So I got all cozy and warm in my chair and just enjoyed it. Revisiting Stone Barrington, his sidekick Dino, restauranteur Elaine, and on again/off again lover Arrington is like running into old friends. This book isn't going to change my life, but it definitely gave me a good laugh and a few hours of escape. Thanks Stuart!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dalton | 11/28/2013

    " This is the Stuart Woods novel that got me addicted to his style of suspenseful writing. He keeps you enthralled and on the edge of your seat. Some times a bit predictable...so you think, then he throws you a curve ball. Something he does in may of his novels - which I love! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kim | 11/28/2013

    " Mr. Woods always offers an enjoyable masculine cozy mystery to break the monotony of intense murder and mayhem. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andy | 7/15/2013

    " One of the better Stone Barrington books in my opinion. Moved fast...in many ways. Another quick Woods read.... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jan | 5/23/2013

    " This is one of those times I wish I could give half stars. Not quite a 4 star book but more than 3 stars. I haven't read any from this series before and it was my first borrowed ebook from the library on my Kobo. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 John | 5/22/2013
