In this perfect mix of sexy intrigue and swift suspense in the #1 New York Times bestselling series, Stone Barrington investigates the suicide of a CIA officer--his own cousin...Stone Barrington hasn't heard from his cousin, Dick Stone, in years. Then, an otherwise pleasant meal at Elaine's is interrupted by the CIA with news of Dick's death--apparently by his own hand. It seems that Dick Stone, a quiet family man who doubled as a CIA agent, methodically executed his wife, daughter, and then himself...or did he? Appointed executor of Dick's will, Stone must settle the estate and--with the help of his ex-partner Dino and friend Holly Barker--piece together the elusive facts of his cousin's life and death as a CIA operative. At every step, Stone knows he is being watched by Dick's family--and one of them just may be the killer.
