Stone Barrington finds intrigue abroad in the sensational new thriller by the New York Times–bestselling author.
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.

I liked this Audiobook CD by Woods, Stuart. I like this author and his style. It is too violent and sexual for children to listen to. This is a murder mystery sleuthing story. The twists and turns in the story keep you interested. Dino just married to Vivian. Vivian has retired from the NYPD and working with Mike Freeman. Kate Lee has just retired as Director of CIA . Lance has become of Director of CIA instead. Stone and his Hotel Business Partner, Marcel, are in Paris planning what cities to build hotels in. Stone is the unintended victim of a drug causing 4 days amnesia for him; thus, it is called "Unintended Consequences". The CIA are assisting Stone. Meanwhile, the Russians are using sabotage to impeded Marcel and Stone. Stone has a lover, Helga (H), from Sweden. Amanda (A) organized Art for Sale for the rich. A is just a platonic friend. Stone just met H & A this trip. Helga and Amanda both work with the CIA. Holly is busy in N.Y. on the job. Holly is too busy to spend anytime with Stone. Holly is picking her career over a personal relationship. Dino & Vivian are on their honey moon on some island. The Russians try to run over the car that Lance, Rick, and Stone were in with a cement truck. This killed Marcel's driver driving Marcel's car. Helga shoots one of the Albainians/Russians in self defense in her hotel room. The USA Ambassador frees her from the Paris Police & she flees home with assistance. In N.Y. Helga and Stone are kidnapped by the Russians; but, Dina, NYPD, CIA save them. All Russians are killed except their leader who got away. Marcel becomes a client for the law firm and Mike Freeman. Fred and some wine are sent to Stone in N.Y. by Marcel. Stone buys the house beside him in N.Y.. The servants live there now. Peter, Stone's son is at Yale going to school. Peter is not working with the movie studio yet.

#26 in the Stone Barrington series. Stone Barrington rubs elbows with the upper echelons of the CIA and NYPD, cuts multi-billion dollar international security and construction deals without breaking a sweat, and effortlessly beds world class beauties. This NY Times bestselling author is churning out my favorite soap opera.
