A Broadway actress has a pout to die for, a past to hide from, and Stone Barrington on her case in this page-turning thriller in Stuart Woods’s #1 New York Times bestselling series.
Stone Barrington is back in New York, working on some simple cases for Woodman & Weld when he crosses paths with a aspiring actress and gets a little more involved with show business than he’d expected...
Then the fleecing of a wealthy art dealer’s daughter leads him into the worlds of financial fraud, “Big Art,” and Manhattan’s Upper East Side, where opulent co-op apartments are hung with multimillion-dollar paintings and family scandals never remain hidden for long. No stranger to high society or the foibles of the rich, Stone must now uncover the truth in a world where wealth and beauty sometimes come at the ultimate price.
