Can Barrington return from the dead to find the missing woman and thwart the lethally hostile takeover?
Drenched in Hollywood glitz and glamour, and filled with the dizzying plot twists and turns that have made his novels New York Times bestsellers and international sensations, Swimming to Catalina is Stuart Woods’s fastest-paced, most riveting and unabashedly clever thriller yet.
