Here, many of the characters fans have come to love return, including Ed Eagle and Will Lee, among others. This time out, they all gather in Los Angeles for what proves to be a very exciting, and potentially life-threatening, political convention that could ultimately change the course of American history.

During the convention, Barrington plays host to some of the country’s most influential citizens, including those in the worlds of entertainment and government. The cast is colorful and ambitious, and many of the characters will stop at nothing to get what they want.

With a keen mind and seemingly unlimited resources, Barrington vigilantly tries to propel his friends toward success while simultaneously protecting them from a carefully disguised enemy who is bent on destroying some of those closest to Stone, regardless of the cost.

Like the wizard behind the curtain, Barrington pulls strings like a master puppeteer to get what he wants in the political arena, even if it takes backroom deals and insidious manipulation. Just when it seems as though everything will turn out as planned, violence threatens to erupt and destroy everything he has worked hard to attain. That is when this novel really gains momentum.

Woods’ latest novel travels from the bedrooms and boardrooms of the rich and famous, around dizzying political arenas and through movie studio back lots to the final, nail biting conclusion in America’s largest city.

Fraught with enough twists and turns to keep even the most seasoned suspense reader guessing, Cut and Thrust once again proves that Stuart Woods is at the top of his game as he expertly takes readers along for a roller coaster ride that is as fun as it is surprising.
