From the New York Times -- bestselling author of Dirt, Choke, and Imperfect Strangers comes another thriller (more than 100,000 hardcover copies sold) of love, greed, and murder set against the shimmering waters off Antigua.

Stone Barrington is back, and it will take all of the savvy New York investigator/lawyer's wits to stay afloat in this exciting, fast-paced tale of Caribbean island intrigue. This time, Barrington is the only hope of Allison Manning, a beautiful young woman on trial for murder after her wealthy husband mysteriously disappear.

Together, the Mannings had set sail across the Atlantic, bound for the island of Antigua. But when Allison dropped anchor in St. Mark's harbor, she was alone, her husband presumed murdered. Facing conviction, she enlists the help of Barrington, who goes head-to-head with the island's minister of justice, Sir Winston Sutherland, a man who practices his own forms of justice. Inextricably caught in a swirling storm of local island mayhem, murder, and, of course, romance, Barrington discovers that, under the searing Caribbean sun, even the most convincing people aren't who they seem.

display_description Stone Barrington is back. Stuart Woods has created no better known or loved character than the ex-cop, Manhattan attorney and investigator whose work treads the thin line between the respectable practice of law and the dark side of humanity. In Dead in the Water, Stone has hardly arrived in St. Marks, a lovely Caribbean island nation, on a sailing vacation when something very strange happens: a beautiful young woman sails into the harbor, entirely alone on a large yacht. Before long, she is under the intense scrutiny of the local authorities, in the very considerable person of Sir Winston Sutherland, the minister of justice. The problem is, though she arrived alone, she had departed the other side of the Atlantic in the company of her husband, a well-known writer, who is no longer in evidence. Evidence is what fascinates Stone Barrington, and he is all that stands between the apparently innocent Allison Manning and the patently evil intent of Sir Winston, whose motives are unclear. What is clear is that the St. Marks system of justice bears little resemblance to the American courts to which Stone is accustomed, and that his smallest error could prove fatal to his client. Dead in the Water is a rollercoaster ride, teeming with the plot twists that have made the novels of Stuart Woods New York Times bestsellers and international hits.
