Cut and Thrust:A Stone Barrington Novel

Stuart Woods

Politics and peril mix in Woods’ latest Stone Barrington novel (after Standup Guy, 2014). Stone travels to Los Angeles with First Lady Kate Lee, who is seeking the Presidential nomination at the Democratic National Convention. Kate asks Stone to be her intermediary at the convention, and Stone proves adept at political deal making and defusing physical threats--including one made via email to Kate's Secret Service detail. Lending support is Stone's former NYPD partner, Dino Bachetti, and Sante Fe lawyer Ed Eagle (Sante Fe Edge, 2010), who is still being hunted by his deadly ex-wife, Barbara.
