Book 1, A Teddy Fay Novel

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Stone Barrington series comes the first novel in an extraordinary series starring an old fan favorite: Teddy Fay.

When President Kate Lee calls Stone Barrington to Washington on an urgent matter, it’s soon clear that a potentially disastrous situation requires the kind of help more delicate than even he can provide...and he knows just the right man for the job.

Teddy Fay: ex-CIA, master of disguise, and a gentleman not known for abiding by legal niceties in the pursuit of his own brand of justice.

From Publishers Weekly

Jun 06, 2016 – Bestseller Woods (Dishonorable Intentions) teams with Edgar-finalist Hall (A Fool for a Client) on this testosterone-fueled thriller, which features recurring character Teddy Fay, an ex-CIA agent and master of disguise, who first appeared as a villain in 2003's Capital Crimes. New York lawyer Stone Barrington is cruising on his yacht on the Hudson River when he receives an urgent summons to attend a state dinner in Washington, D.C. During the dinner, Stone is called away to a secret meeting with President Kate Lee, a Democrat, and Congressman Charles Blaine, a Republican. Blaine's college-age daughter, Karen, has been kidnapped by unknown parties who are threatening to kill Karen unless Blaine, the Speaker of the House, is able to pass a bill providing medical benefits for wounded veterans that his party opposes. Stone has someone in mind to handle this sensitive crisis, though for security reasons he won't tell the president the person's name Teddy. Fans are sure to welcome this action-packed start to a separate series within the larger Stone Barrington story arc.

Not Woods best, seemed character usual banter.
This may be because of the coauthor, maybe just money. I hope the next one is better, I have read them all.


A Stuart Woods fan and enjoyed every book, but not this one. Very poor and a waste of time and money. Will move on to other choices.

This effort is horrible. Woods must be soooo proud...Not! Shame on you for ripping off a longtime Woods fan.
