Unnatural Acts by Stuart Woods is the 23rd book in the “Stone Barrington” suspense series. Publisher: Putnam, April 2012
When a hedge fund billionaire hires Stone Barrington to talk some sense into his wayward son, it seems like an easy enough job; no one knows the hidden sins and temptations of the ultra-wealthy better than Stone. But as Stone and his erstwhile protégé, Herbie Fisher, probe deeper into the case—and an old one comes back to haunt him—he realizes that even he may have underestimated just how far some people will go to cover up their crimes…and plan new ones.
From Manhattan’s mahogany-paneled law offices to its dimly lit night clubs and modern penthouse lofts, the trail of entrapment and murder leads to a shocking act that no one could never have anticipated.
I love when a book entertains me and Stuart Woods does that with the escapades of Stone Barrington, Dino Bacchetti and now Herbie Fisher. Trying to help a client causes Herbie some discomfort and someone from the past is taunting Dino and Stone is just Stone. I enjoyed this fast-moving and action-filled suspense from the first page to its thrilling conclusion and I can’t wait to see what new adventures lies in store for the trio and their friends.
