Stone Barrington is back in another tense thriller that takes place at a political convention in Los Angeles. Also here are characters from the Will Lee novels and attorney Ed Eagle, who is also a delegate to the convention. The story is interesting up to a point but becomes a ho hum boring story because the ex wife of Ed Eagle is again plotting ways to kill him. This story has been done so many times by Woods that by now it is just plain boring. “Cut and Thrust” at best is a fair Barrington novel.
