Booklist Reviews 2018 November #2

Woods' Stone Barrington is always dependable, even as the author turns out four books a year featuring this much-loved character. Ex-NYPD detective turned lawyer at a tony law firm, Barrington is able to indulge his expensive tastes while maintaining his integrity. Here, as executor of the estate of Eduardo Bianchi, a man reputedly once high in the Mafia in his younger years who turned respectable and gained power, Barrington comes into possession of files on 12 men, 11 now dead, containing explosive information. The sole living subject of the files is Gianni Tommassini, whose Mafia-ordered murders are documented. Now, with his name anglicized to Henry Thomas, he leads a prominent banking family, and his grandson is a candidate for president. Barrington plans to expose the files and the politically motivated corruption behind them, but first he must evade the Thomas family in a potentially deadly yacht chase. Woods continues to deliver satisfying escapist fare, with the Bondian Barrington outmaneuvering his foes yet again, always with high-tech gadgetry at the ready and a beautiful woman at his side.

PW Reviews 2018 October #4

At the start of bestseller Woods's suspenseful, twisty 48th Stone Barrington novel (after Desperate Measures), lawyer Stone arranges for a safe located in the Brooklyn mansion of the late Eduardo Bianchi, "a mysteriously powerful man reputed to have been at the top of the Mafia," to be opened on the behalf of Eduardo's grown daughter. Inside, besides millions in cash, are criminal histories prepared by Eduardo of a number of high-level mob bosses, all of whom are dead, except for Henry Thomas, formerly Gianni Tommassini. Long ago, Henry founded an investment bank, "with much of its original funding from the Five Families." Henry's son, Jack, has run the bank for the last 20 years, and Jack's son, Henry II, is a popular New York congressman. What are the Thomases up to now? Stone joins forces with comely New York Times reporter Jamie Cox to find out. Meanwhile, Henry becomes aware that Stone is on his trail and orders his henchmen to use any means to stop Stone. As usual, Woods tells a fast, enjoyable crime story seasoned with tantalizing views of the lifestyles of the rich. Agent: Anne Sibbald, Janklow & Nesbit. (Jan.)
