"Stone Barrington is settling in for some downtime in New York City when an anonymous enemy makes himself known. This nameless foe's threats hit close to home, and before Stone can retaliate, the fearsome messages turn into very real consequences. With the help of old friends--and a lovely new tech-savvy acquaintance--Stone sets out to unravel the fatal agenda. But as the web of adversaries expands, Stone realizes that no place is safe, and he'll have to flush out the mastermind before he and those closest to him are silenced for good..."-- Provided by publisher.

Stone Barrington is royally pissing off the Russian Mob. Not only does he respond rudely to their online extortionist, who demands a million dollars in Bitcoin to unfreeze his computers, but he has a history of besting the organization. The computer problem is solved with the help of CIA specialist Roxanne Rocky Hardwick, who soon becomes Barrington's bedmate, but the overall Mob situation is unresolved. With attempts being made on his life, Barrington calls on his considerable contacts and resources: the CIA, of which he's a deputy director; the NYPD, of which he's a former employee and whose commissioner, Dino Bacchetti, is Stone's closest friend; even his occasional lover, President Holly Barker, not to mention his personal plane and pilot and multiple residences in the U.S. and Europe, useful in trying to evade would-be assassins. When two of the Pentkovsky brothers, who head the Russian Mob, are taken out by ex-CIA operative Ed Rawls, a violent man known as The Greek succeeds them, and a truce is arranged with Barrington, but will the arrangement be honored by both sides? Prime escapism from a master of the genre. Copyright 2021 Booklist Reviews.
