In Dead in the Water, Stone has barely 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 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 before many pages have been turned, 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.

Richard Ferrone takes on the persona of Stone Barrington, a Manhattan attorney. His superb acting skills and outstanding narrating abilities combine to present an ingenious, suspenseful plot, with exciting twists and turns. Did the beautiful Allison Manning, in whom Stone has more than a professional interest, murder her famous writer-husband? Why does Sir Winston, St. Marks Island's minister of justice, want to hang Allison? Ferrone's slightly accented but clear and concise voice provides warmth to Woods's appealing story, which is part romance and all mystery and intrigue. A pleasurable, exciting experience awaits listeners. S.C.A. © AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
