A Safe House

Penguin Random House Audio. (Stone Barrington, Bk. 61). Mar. 2022. 6:18 hrs. ISBN 9780593554081. $20. THRILLER
If a fantasy action hero was a lawyer, he would most definitely want to be Stone Barrington! The 61st book in the series is at once both comforting to the faithful reader and able to be enjoyed by a first-timer to the long series run. Stone, asked by the Director of the Central Intelligence Agency to protect the beautiful ex-wife of a corrupt American senator, takes the job seriously. Eluding a skilled assassin on the hunt requires bravery, quick thinking, and smarts, qualities Stone has in abundance. The action races from the streets of New York City to the great estates of England to the pleasant waters off the Florida Keys. With his keen skill pacing a story, Woods ably takes listeners along for the ride, delivering what makes him a frequent guest on best-sellers lists: lots of fast-paced action and a decidedly fun reading experience. The narration of Tony Roberts ably keeps up and even cranks up the sense of adventure.
VERDICT Another winning entry by Woods, and a good place to jump into the series for those who do not want to start with book one.
