Caveat emptor! Yes, that is right. Before you purchase this title, enlarge the cover graphic and find it contains the two already published books "L.A. Dead" and "Cold Paradise." If you do not already own those titles-swell- buy this one! If you do, save your money.

I ordered "Dead Paradise" in December when there was little information concerning the content of the book in the listing. I've been reading Woods since Chiefs and while Stone Barrington is not my favorite lead character, I trusted the author to provide another good read in a new book.

When I received the book two and a half months later, I have to admit Woods had provided a good read but years before with the publication of "L.A. Dead" and "Cold Paradise". I don't know if the idea to market the books in this manner was the publishers or the authors but those of us who are Woods fans and bought "Dead Paradise", will not be caught unaware again.

I will not be automatically pre-ordering selections without full information in the listing. In fact, I'm reviewing my pre-orders as soon as I complete this review.

I bought it and was extremely disapointed. I think that I got the shaft. It was represented as a new novel. Instead, it was 2 old novels combined into one book.

Buyer beware, I think that this is a case of gross advertising deception.

Imagine my disappointment to receive what I thought was a new novel by Stuart Woods only to find out that it's one volume of two previously released novels. I love all of his books...but this should have been better advertised!!!!

I'm appalled at this marketing. I've read every book Mr. Woods has written and have enjoyed them all. This type of marketing should not be allowed. It would have been simple to make the Cover obvious as to contents. For those who have not read the novels it's a good deal, otherwise very disappointing advertising.

I feel I have been ripped off. I thought I was getting a new Stuart Woods book and come to find out Dead Paradise is two of Woods' existing books combined in one-both of which I already own. Now I have to pay the shipping to return a book I obviously don't wnat or need.

I too was duped into believing I was buying a new Stone Barrington novel only to find that it was 2 old novels that I have already read. Lesson learned...always read the Amazon customer reviews first!

I was just before ordering as I had not read this one, only to find out that it was two old novels in same cover. It pays to check Amazon reviews. I would have been miffed if I had bought it. I usually read them just as soon as they are published.

Beware of strange marketing practices.
