Two-Dollar Bill delivers all the storytelling twists
and whip-smart banter readers have come to love in Stuart
Woods's thrillers. In this latest, Stone Barrington, the
suave Manhattan cop-turned-lawyer, is back on his home turf
facing down a brilliant Southern flimflam man.
The fun-and action-begins with what Stone believes will be
a quiet dinner with his ex-partner, Dino, but they are
interrupted by Billy Bob, a filthy rich, smooth-talkin'
Texan, who strolls in and parks himself at their table.
He's in town "to make money," he says, unwrapping his wad
of rare two-dollar bills, and in need of an attorney-
namely, Stone-though he won't say why or when such
representation will be necessary. As they leave the
restaurant, however, an unknown assailant shoots at Stone
and his cohorts-and the wily Southerner has spread his two-
dollar bills around to everyone like confetti.
Against his better judgment, Stone offers Billy Bob a safe
haven for the night but almost immediately begins to
suspect that he's made several precipitous misjudgments-for
the slippery out-of-towner has gone missing and someone has
been found dead-in Stone's town house no less. Stone is now
caught between a beautiful federal prosecutor and a love
from his past, a con man with more aliases than hairs on
his head, and a murder investigation that could ruin them
