Some brief overview of this book

Home gets hot for special agent Holly Barker.

Going home can be hard. But for Special Agent Holly Barker, it could be her one chance for justice against an old enemy...

York, where he worked in advertising for the better part of the 1960s. He spent three years in London working for various ad agencies, then moved to Ireland in 1973 to begin his writing career in earnest. However, despite his best intentions, Woods got sidetracked in Ireland. He was nearly 100 pages into a novel when he discovered the seductive pleasures of sailing. Everything went to hell, he quips on his web site All I did was sail. He bought a boat, learned everything he could about celestial navigation, and competed in the Observer Singlehanded Transatlantic Race (OSTAR) in 1976, finishing respectably in the middle of the fleet. (Later, he took part in the infamous Fastnet Race of 1979, a yachting competition that ended tragically when a huge storm claimed the lives of 15 sailors and 4 observers. Woods and his crew emerged unharmed.) Returning to the U.S., Woods wrote two nonfiction books: an account of his transatlantic sailing adventures (Blue Water, Green Skipper) and a travel guide he claims to have written on a whim. But the book that jump-started his career was the opus interruptus begun in Ireland. An absorbing multigenerational mystery set in a small southern town, Chiefs was published in 1981, went on to win an Edgar Award, and was subsequently turned into a television miniseries starring Charlton Heston. An amazingly prolific author, Woods has gone on to pen dozens of compelling thrillers, juggling stand-alone novels with installments in four successful series. (His most popular protagonists are New York cop-turned-attorney Stone Barrington, introduced in 1991s New York Dead, and plucky Florida police chief Holly Barker, who debuted in 1998s Orchid Beach.) His pleasing mix of high-octane action, likable characters, and sly, subversive humor has made him a hit with readers — who have returned the favor by propelling his books to the top of the bestseller lists.

Good To Know

Some fascinating facts about Stuart Woods: His first job was in advertising at BBDO in New York, and his first assignment was to write ads for CBS-TV shows. He recalls: They consisted of a drawing of the star and one line of exactly 127 characters, including spaces, and I had to write to that length. It taught me to be concise. He flies his own airplane, a single-engine turboprop called a Jetprop, and tours the country every year in it, including book tours. Hes a partner in a 1929 motor yacht called Belle and spends two or three weeks a year aboard her. In 1961-62, Woods spent 10 months in Germany with the National Guard at the height of the Berlin Wall Crisis. In October and November of 1979, he skippered a friends yacht back across the Atlantic, with a crew of six, calling at the Azores, Madeira, and the Canary Islands and finishing at Antigua in the Caribbean.
