A woman stumbles into Stone Barrington in a most unusual way that sets up a series of events that could just get Stone killed because her soon to be ex husband believes Stone is the new man in her life when Barrington is just helping a damsel in distress. There are also a series of murders of women who have certain characteristics that also fit a woman working for Stone. Once again Stuart Woods provides suspenseful doses of exciting events with rapid pacing and snappy dialogue that makes “Desperate Measures” a surefire hit with fans of the series.
