Stone Barrington is enjoying a boating excursion off the Maine coast when a chance encounter leaves him somewhat the worse for wear. Always able to find the silver lining in even the unhappiest circumstances, Stone is pleased to discover that the authors of his misfortune are, in fact, members of a prestigious family who present a unique business opportunity, and who require a man of Stone's skills to overcome a sticky situation of their own. The acquaintance is fortuitous indeed, for as it turns out, Stone and his new friends have an enemy in common. He's the sort of man who prefers force to finesse, and who regards any professional defeat as a personal and intolerable insult. And when Stone's sly cunning collides with his adversary's hair-trigger-temper, the results are sure to be explosive...

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. This is the book right after the book where Erik Macher (EM) and Christian St. Claire (CS) steal the locked CIA strong case briefcase from Stone & Ed Rawls (ER) after committing assault on them. CS is killed by a bomb in the briefcase when he opened it up without the proper code. CS has been financially supporting Knot, who Kate Lee campaigned against. Fred Flicker is S's driver. Fred is an ex-British Marine Officer. Herb Fisher (HF) is a Sr. Lawyer at S's law firm. S owns both houses in NY. S has the dog, Bob. Joanne is S's Secretary. Now the new book, Dino just married to Vivian. Vivian is working with Mike Freeman. Stone is on a vacation at his island home from his cousin. Stone is doing some yachting in the fog. Stone's boat is destroyed by accident by his neighbors, the Carlson's. The Carlson's are one father, one daughter, and two sons. The Carlson's run the "Carlson Clinic" which is a corporation partly owned by their employees. All the Carlson's are doctors. Stone gets a new boat paid for by the Carlson insurance company. S's new boat is an improvement over the damaged boat. The Carlson's have a mutual enemy (EM), who is now operating St. Claire's Company. Stone introduces the Carlson's to his law firm & they become a new client for the firm (called creating rain). Strategic services provides security for all the Carlson's. Herb Fisher is the lawyer handling the offer at the law firm. EM is trying to do an unwanted take over of the Carlson Clinic underpaying what the company is worth. Stone and his friends create opposition by helping the Carlson's get 65% control on the company using the Carlson's money which stopped Macher takeover. Strategic Services and Billy Barnet (Teddy Fay) (BB) all defend the opposition. BB works at the movie studio. They also help the Board Of Directors of St. Claire who don't like EM, to get rid of EM. Marissa Carlson (MC), daughter, becomes Stone's temporary lover. The Triangle Partnership (TP) is formed by Stone, Strategic Services and Charlie Fox (CF). TP invests into company acquisitions using their money and other people's money. TP acquired companies that EM wanted. EM was kicked out of St. Claire's by the B of D. Dino and CF and Stone got proof of a valid will to help the B of D to get EM out. HF is helping S one everything for legal work. CF was ER's inside source at St. Claire's company. ER and CF used to work together at the CIA. EM has been using Jake as his henchman to intimidate their opposition. Jake is Ex-FBI and very violent. Jake's henchmen are charged with weapons without a permit by Dino. They are charged for shooting Stone's car tires. EM is murdered at the end by Ed Rawls after EM kills Jake with a gun. Fox stays in Stone's guest house. CF's lover, Kaylie, is an Ex-CIA woman, who works with Vivian & Mike at Strategic Services. CF works with Strategic Services at the end of the book. S, Mike Harrison, CF all buy St. Claire's assets at the end of the book. EM's Lawyer, Thomas Barrison, is disbarred.
