Detailed item info

"Ed Eagle, Santa Fe's preeminent trial lawyer, first introduced in Woods's Santa Fe Rules, finds himself in extreme domestic difficulties. On the morning of his fiftieth birthday, as he is about to open his elegant new law offices, Eagle learns that he is in the sort of trouble usually reserved for his unluckiest clients. Quickly marshaling his resources, which include two private detectives, an accused murderer, an ace ex-IRS agent, he begins a campaign to save his law practice, his wealth, his reputation, and his self-respect from the astonishing machinations of the person closest to him. The action takes Eagle's team across the Southwest, always pitted against a wily and completely ruthless adversary."--BOOK JACKET.

Ed Eagle--first introduced in Santa Fe Rules--returns in this new, heart-stopping novel by New York Times bestselling author Stuart Woods.

Short Strawreintroduces Santa Fe lawyer Ed Eagle, who first appeared in Stuart Woods's 1992 thriller, Santa Fe Rules. In his first adventure, Ed fell in love with the seductive Barbara Kennerly, and married her-against his better judgment. Turns out that Ed should have listened to his intuition. Ed Eagle awakens the morning after his fortieth birthday to find that Barbara has vanished, and Ed's money-from his business, his bank, and his brokerage accounts-has been wired to the Cayman Islands. Barbara, it appears, had drugged his birthday wine, neatly cleaned him out and then fled to Mexico, from where she can't be extradited. And as if that weren't bad enough, when Ed arrives at work that morning he discovers that he's been assigned a new client who looks like nothing but trouble-Joe Big Bear, a part-time mechanic charged with a triple homicide. Ed hires two slightly shady investigators to search for his wife. But when they track Barbara down in Puerto Vallarta, they discover that Joe Big Bear may also be embroiled in Barbara's plot. Ed soon finds himself caught in a scheme that is much more far reaching-and deadly-than anyone would have expected.
