In Woods’s previous installment of his Stone Barrigton series, America’s secret weapon, Manhattan lawyer Barrington, stopped a terrorist attempt to kill the president in a Los Angeles hotel bombing. Now, the sister of two of the dead terrorists, Jasmine Shazaz, is on a London-to-New York revenge tour, blowing up British and American bastions of diplomacy with shocking ease. Tony Roberts, a frequent narrator of the Barrington chronicles, turns in a charismatic performance in this audio edition. His glib, fast-paced delivery makes even Woods’s 1960s-style playful sex banter sound contemporary. And his naturalistic narrative skills help to turn this somewhat predictable yarn into thrilling and very listenable entertainment. A Putnam hardcover. (Jan.)
