Bestseller Woods’s 50th novel, the 24th entry in his Stone Barrington series (Unnatural Acts, etc.), boasts an all-star lineup, from series fixtures such as Lt. Dino Bacchetti and lawyer Herbie Fisher to Woods’s other series leads, notably U.S. president Will Lee and Holly Barker of the CIA. The event that brings everyone together is the opening of the Arrington, the palatial Bel-Air hotel named for Stone’s late wife, Arrington Carter. The glittering assembly of guests, including Lee and the Mexican president, makes the affair a prime terrorist target. Hints of a clever plan for a horrific attack reach members of various security agencies, who scramble to prevent it. Meanwhile, Stone and his guests try to enjoy the opulent setting with their usual accompaniments of good food, good drink, and good sex. Woods expertly mixes familiar ingredients to produce an intoxicating cocktail that goes down easily. Agent: Anne Sibbald, Janklow & Nesbit. (Sept.)
