    Description

    The unflappable Stone Barrington comes face to face with two men whose lives are wrapped in shadows and lies - and who both still feel the sting of betrayal they can never forget.

    Between a Rock and a Hard Place

    Hired by an odd client previously unknown to him, Stone arrives in London on a mission he thinks he understands but doesn't. Soon he finds himself not only out of his territory but out of his depth as well. Baffled as he is by the behavior of both his quarry and his client, Stone's life is further complicated by two, possibly three murders and the affectionate attentions of two former lovers. When the intelligence services of three countries become involved, he can only hang on for a wild ride and hope for a not-too-bumpy landing.

    “Mr. Woods, like his characters, has an appealing way of making things nice and clear.” (The New York Times)

    “Woods certainly knows how to keep the pages turning.” (Booklist)

    An easy to listen to book

    found myself enthralled yet again with the exploits of Stone Barrington and Dino Bachetti his old partner in NYPD.

    Well presented; Weak story

    The reader did a fine job presenting this plot-driven novel. Unfortunately, there is little character development. It is difficult to like the characters or to care about what happens to them.

    Another great read!!

    The story a little convoluted. It keeps you guessing, and when you think you know where it is going, it changes track.

    A great deal of fun.

    A reasonably believable plot with charm wit and style in great London and English locations.

    Ok, I guess I'm hooked after all!

    Eventhough, all the characters sound like wild senior citizens (nothing wrong with that mind you), due to the older sounding voice of the narrator. Since this was one of the earlier installments, I see that the characters cocktail swigging, etc., lifestyles were already set early on. Otherwise it's all just jetsetting here and there, feather boas (just kidding), hefty bank accounts, some espionage, romps in various beds/partners, a few dead bodies, cigar puffing, name dropping, the right connections, and, of course, only the most acceptable cars. I will now start from the very beginning of this long series, and eat my hat.

    Great story with an ending.

    Great story from start to finish with a good pace. The book had a solid conclusion and wasn't an obvious pre-quel to the next. That was appreciated. The immaturity of the relationship between Stone and Arrington remains grating (both ways) as well as Stone's naīvete with the femme fatale he continues to associate. At this point in the series, at least 50% of his lovers have been a murderess. Not sure how he could have ever been a successful homicide detective, but that's what Dino is for. Thanks!

    Best of the Series so far

    Although I missed Dino in the first half, I think this one was the most entertaining so far. I do wish Stone wash't such a complete knucklehead. Here, take my money. Sheesh. I"m sure this will all come around in the future and work itself out. This is my second go at the entire series and I have't read these early ones since they first came out. Am really enjoying them again.
