Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"Upon returning to New York after a British excursion, Stone Barrington is notified of a delicate situation within the country's administration. A close friend requires his expertise and subtlety to eradicate a destructive presence in a classified agency--only it soon becomes clear that this renegade was sent by one of Stone's rivals. From the City of Light to the Maine coast, Stone must summon his wit and daring to catch the evasive traitor and halt the disclosure of confidential intelligence. This enemy may be equipped with unlimited resources and devious schemes, but if Stone remains vigilant, justice may finally prevail."--Back cover.

    There's a mole in her agency, says U.S. Secretary of State Holly Barker, who comes to Stone Barrington, her occasional lover, for help. This is not only a potential problem for national security but also one that needs to be solved before Barker declares as a candidate for the presidency. So Barrington, now a CIA deputy director, thinks an off-the-books investigation is in order, which takes the jet-setting Barrington to various high-level events in Paris and New York. Along the way, he meets the dangerous Russian oligarch Yevgeny Chekhov and the enigmatic Peter Grant, whose background is a blank. Then Barrington's new acquaintance and bedmate, Vanessa Baker, who owns a string of bakeries in New York, is poisoned by a toxin known to be used by Russians, spurring his quest for answers. Despite a hasty wrap-up, this is trademark Woods, with Barrington's Bondian need for luxury and sex satisfied as he mixes with the rich and beautiful in posh settings. Smooth escapism for voyeurs everywhere. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
