Description

A chance encounter with a small-time crook sends Stone Barrington straight into the heart of New York's mafia underworld in this action-packed thriller in the #1 New York Times bestselling series. It started out as just another late night at Elaine's, but it ended with Stone on the horns of a dilemma. Forced to represent a sleazy but clueless con man, Stone finds that what could have been a throwaway case instead leads right to Carmine Datilla, a powerful mob boss with a notoriously bad temper and long reach. With the help of his ex-partner, Dino, Stone investigates "Datilla the Hun," and the rest of the mob family, encountering intrigue and danger at every turn. Will Stone finally take a stand, or will he end up at the bottom of Sheepshead Bay?
