Another great Stone Barrington novel. Great combination of Barrington and Holly Barker... two of his main characters together in one novel... who is protecting the killer... FBI, CIA, Secret Service... this is what they are trying to find out... great read!
Stone Barrington returns, this time on the hunt for a killer with the guts to think he can hide out abmong the crowds of NYC. Barrington's partner in this endeavor is Holly Barker, the Orchid Beach, FL police chief.
This book finds detective Stone Barrington in New York and this time he is helped by Holly Barker. Holly, you remember, was the police chief of Orchid Beach, Florida and Barrington had helped out on her case. Now she is returnng the favor. This book is almost as much fun as Orchid Beach.

Cop-turned-lawyer Stone Barrington tracks a mobster hiding deep inside the witness protection program in this next thriller in the New York Times-bestselling series.
Stone Barrington is, once again, right at home in New York City; but this time he is joined by the tenacious Holly Barker from Orchid Blues, the lady police chief of Orchid Island, Florida. In Reckless Abandon, Holly finally makes it to Manhattan, hot on the trail of an evil fugitive from her jurisdiction. Stone is, well, glad to see her, right up until the moment when her presence creates a great danger to both of them-and to their surprise, she becomes the pursued, not the pursuer.
It's double the pleasure and double the fun as Woods brings series character Holly Barker, chief of the Orchid Beach, Fla., police department (of Orchid Blues, etc.), onstage to co-star with PI Stone Barrington (of Dirty Work, etc.) in his latest adventure. Holly's come to New York hot on the trail of Trini Rodriguez, a bad guy she thought she'd stabbed to death in an earlier adventure. He's currently wanted for (among other things) blowing up a dozen people by hiding bombs in the caskets of two of his earlier victims and detonating them at the funeral. But finding him won't be so simple: he's been placed in the FBI Witness Protection Program and is working with the Feds and the CIA to catch an Arab terrorist group trying to employ the Mafia in a money-laundering scheme..
