[a Stone Barrington Novel]Book - 2013
Stone Barrington is no stranger to schemes and deceptions of all stripes--as an attorney for the premier white-shoe law firm Woodman & Weld, he's seen more than his share. But when he travels to Europe under highly unusual circumstances, Stone finds himself at the center of a mystery that is, even by his standards, most peculiar. Two unexpected invitations may be the first clues in an intricate puzzle Stone must unravel to learn the truth . . . a puzzle that will lead him deep into the rarefied world of European ultrawealth and privilege, where billionaires rub elbows with spooks, insider knowledge is traded at a high premium, and murder is never too high a price to pay for a desired end. It soon becomes clear that beneath the bright lights of Europe lurks a shadowy underworld . . . and its only rule is deadly ambition.

SummaryAdd a Summary
Stone Barrington, ex-cop turned PI, unexplainably finds himself in Paris (France, not Texas) without a clue as to why or how he got there. Waking up in a hospital room at the American Embassy, he has, from all accounts, had four days wiped from his memory. Recovering in a hotel, he responds to two invitations that magically connect him with a circle of Europeon billionaires and various underworld characters. He and his new companions flee to America, where they are persued. The underworld target turns out to be a surprise, even to Spenser, and their motive hits close to home.
