Description

Stone Barrington enters a cutthroat game where only the canniest player can come out on top in this exceptional thriller from #1 New York Times bestselling author Stuart Woods.

And amid the ambitious schemers and hangers-on are a few people who may use the chaotic events as cover for more sinister plans...
