Entertaining ... Woods, a pro at keeping the plates spinning, creates a stellar performance of risk, intrigue, and hard-won escapes for his very experienced protagonist ... This is a classic 'Mafia crime' mystery, told in a chatty and delightful way. Don’t count on memorable tropes or depth, as they are not the point of Woods’ efforts. But go ahead and bet on Stone Barrington to work things out. And if you’re going along for the ride, as Dino will be from time to time, be sure to bring a dinner jacket. Stone solves crimes in style.
