Book Note: Stuart Woods, Foreign Affairs

I read this book about 25-May-2016. This is the first time I've read this book. The book is copyright 2015. This note was last modified Tuesday, 14-Jun-2016 09:41:57 PDT.

This is book 35 of the "Stone Barrington" series.

This note contains spoilers for the book.


Gets into all sorts of shit with a mafioso, formerly of New York but self-deported back to Italy, when the hotel company he's a major owner of starts planning a hotel in Rome.

A fairly nice scene where his latest new girlfriend is very angry with him for taking so long to find her and rescue her (perfectly reasonable end-of-terror reaction from her, and he was really trying pretty hard, with help from many Italian police agencies, the CIA, and Strategic Services). And mostly she rescued herself, except she couldn't get off the peninsula the house was on.

Stone is definitely getting to be an over-ranked player-character; he's rich, a pilot and airplane-owner, competent with a gun, friends with the New York City Police Commissioner, friends with the president, a board member of Strategic Services, and has a working relationship with the current head of the CIA.
