Book Note: Stuart Woods, Strategic Moves

I read this book about 21-May-2016. This is the first time I've read this book. The book is copyright 2011. This note was last modified Tuesday, 14-Jun-2016 09:43:44 PDT.

This is book 19 of the "Stone Barrington" series.

This note contains spoilers for the book.


This one has kind of a nice story. An arms dealer is kidnapped out of Spain (with Stone flying along) but manages to escape—by driving the Mercedes off the back ramp of the C-17. He then shows up in Stone's office a few days later to get Stone to negotiate a deal.

Pablo has cleaned up most of his legal problems (paid IRS 30 million and such) and is willing to talk about his arms deals, and reveals where Bin Laden is hiding (which is then bombed to hell in such a way that there's no real chance in finding out if he was killed).

Then a disgruntled CIA operative (Pablo spoiled the perfect kidnapping mission) leaks his name to Al Quaida, so suddenly he's difficult to protect.

It's a bit looser, more imaginative, less straight-laced than usual, and that's nice.
