    In his fiftieth novel, Woods has his hero, Stone Barrington, preparing for the headline-ready opening of the Bel Air hotel named for his late wife. The Arrington will host the presidents of the U.S. and Mexico for the signing of a new trade and immigration treaty. This draws not only media but also the attention of a terrorist group who intend to bomb the new hotel. Three men are dispatched to gain employment at the Arrington, but the real threat comes from a CIA operative who plans to unleash a nuclear weapon. Most of the sluggish plot involves a setup. As the terrorists work on infiltrating the hotel, the NSA monitors suspicious communications and starts zeroing in on them. Stone's involvement is mostly limited to getting his friends and family, including son Peter and longtime pal Dino Bacchetti, to the hotel, while at the CIA, Holly Barker receives a big promotion. The story picks up in the last fifty pages, which, for anyone but true Woods devotees, is a long time coming. Copyright 2012 Booklist Reviews.
