Someone is Brutally killing the women in Stone Barrington's life -- and he doesn't know why. His date, his secretary, and his neighbor are all murdered within 24 hours of one another. When the D.A. comes sniffing at his door, Stone, the New York lawyer-turned-investigator, enlists the help of his best friend, Dino, the N.Y.P.D. lieutenant, to clear his good name. When Dino gets involved, the cast of characters, shady and otherwise, grows as Dino's Mafioso-type father-in-law, his beautiful daughter Dolce, and even the doorman get into the act. The plot twists from the front table at Elaine's to the dark alleys where Armani-clad mobsters dwell, and Stone can only pray that his worst fears won't be realized as he tries to save the lives of the women he cares about.
