Description


Stone Barrington only wants a winter getaway from the chill of New York in the beautiful, tropical Caribbean paradise of St. Mark's. But what the lawyer and ex-cop gets instead is the chance to defend Allison Manning. The beautiful young woman stands accused of killing her rich husband on board their luxurious yacht and then burying him at sea.




Stone isn't exactly conversant with the island country's law, but this much is clear to him: Allison is being railroaded by the perverse sense of justice of a prosecutor who will do anything to stay in office. Donning the robe and wig of a British barrister, Stone does everything he can to save Allison--from publicizing the case all over the American press to conducting the kind of smart, tough investigation that money can't buy. Just when he has the jury in the palm of his hands, a shocking reversal of fortune changes everything. And what was once a sure thing begins to look a lot like a death sentence.

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., Unabridged., Woods, Stuart., Woods, Stuart.Stone Barrington novel ;, [Stone Barrington novel ;, [United States]:Harper Collins Publishers ,2005., [United States]:Harper Collins Publishers,2016., computerc, data file, digital, eAudiobook hoopla, hoopla digital., https://d2snwnmzyr8jue.cloudfront.net/hpc_9780060841843_180.jpeg, https://d2snwnmzyr8jue.cloudfront.net/hpc_9780062565389_180.jpeg, online resourcecr, spoken wordspw

The beautiful young woman stands accused of killing her rich husband on board their luxurious yacht and then burying him at sea.
