This is a superb and brisky told novel with witty language

One cannot get too much of Stuart Woods' crime novels, his superb, brisk, witty language, his likable heroes and villains, his plots and suspense, his ability to grasp our interest and hold it tight, and Stone Barrington's sexual adventures. Herbie, who won tens of millions in a lottery and who foolishly falls into one problem after another marries and finds more problems, and Stone Barrington needs to protect him from himself and others. There appears to be a Bernie Madoff type ponzy scheme going on, but the forensic accountants can't find it? What's going on? Who's taking the money and how? Will Stone be able to protect his, Herbie's, and his legal firm's millions of dollars? If so, how? Someone wants to kill a woman Stone is involved with. Can he save her? Stone becomes entangled in a CIA somewhat illegal matter and Lance Cabot, a high CIA official, is giving Stone grief about it. Stone is drawn into the affairs of a likable thief and con artist Pablo Estancia. These are just some of the adventures in this very enjoyable novel.

About this book

Wiki

The new page-turning Stone Barrington novel from the perennially entertaining New York Times bestselling author. 

Stone Barrington is enjoying his usual dinner at Elaine's when his boss at Woodman & Weld, the law firm where Stone is "of counsel," walks in, sits down, and hands Stone a check for one million dollars. It seems Stone's undercover dealings with MI6 have brought in a big new client for the firm, and they're willing to pay Stone a huge bonus and make him a partner. 

But almost as soon as he's taken the deal, Stone gets wind of an impending scandal that might torpedo his big promotion: It may be that the lucrative new client whom he's introduced to the firm might be a Bernie Madoff in disguise...
