It keeps your interest and, as always, is a fast read.

Book lacked focus and relied too much on sex and descriptions of food and. wine.

Slim plot on this book, not well developed characters, a total waste of my time.

I'm a loyal Stone fan and pre-order all new books which I proceed to read as slowly as possible and savor like a fine wine. This one, however, was not a favorite. I am usually amused by Stone's dalliances, but his interludes with Holly were too much, way too much. Less Holly please!

I've read all of the Stone Barrington novels. Lately Woods' novels seem to have been written by a committee. At least this one has some action, and you have a brief glimpse of the Stone of old escaping danger. The setting is Paris and Stone is there for the opening of the newest in the chain of Arrington Hotels. The Russians are still looking for Stone and unbeknownst to him--so are certain French gendarmes. He escapes several times--the most interesting and implausible----leaping into the Seine to escape assassins and being picked up by a barge and deposited at Rouen.
The devil-may-care spending is there, especially his purchase of the safe house the CIA puts him in. The usual suspects are in the novel....Holly Barker, Lance Cabot, Dino Bachetti, Mike Freeman, so the gang's all there. Hovering in the background is Kate Lee's presidential run while pregnant and Stone is even involved in the pregnancy for a while.
This could have been a much stronger book if Woods had spent more time on the plot, instead of having Stone jumping in and out of bed with any female who comes within earshot of him. Stone seems just a bit long in the tooth for all the womanizing.
The story builds to possible exciting ending with the Russian's plane surrounded and Cabot's men firing a round into the nosewheel of the plane and then...voila... the story collapses like an overdone souffle.
And here's a petty correction for the author. Stone mentions the song "I Remember it Well" at one point and Stone says that Lerner and Loewe (sic) wrote the song. Uh-huh. It was Lerner and Kurt Weill. Au Voir!

I am addicted to these books. Although have to admit to getting tired of all the women Stone beds. He really should show more concern about the women and a little more depth to his character. Really found myself just turning pages. The story line was great as usual. I have read all 31of this series, and did pre order the next, but not sure if I will continue after this. The books are kind of expensive. Really good series in the beginning kept me coming back for more, but I think Stuart Woods And I are both getting bored with it.

I usually love the Stone Barrington novels by Stuart Woods, but the last few have come across to me as hurried, and very basic; not a lot of detail, and the plots are not fully developed. It seems he himself is tired of writing the Stone Barrington novels and just wants to put something on paper and send it out to be done with it. There are many areas of the books that could be further explored or detailed, but is just glossed over and never fully explained. I liked some of this book but I feel that it had so much more potential to be a great novel; it just wasn't there in the details and plot. Maybe it's time to retire Stone and move on to other characters. However, we are left hanging at the end of this one - so I am sure I will be buying the next one to find out the results on Kate!

While I'm sure the rest of the book is good, as Woods is an excellent writer and I've read every Stone Barrington book published, I am so fed up with him being oversexed and flopping into bed with every woman that he meets, that I stopped reading at Chapter 12 and will NOT finish the book. He goes from woman to woman which shows that he's a total pig and doesn't care about any of them no matter what he tells them. I'm not sure if this all stems from the author's fantasies or if he in fact thinks it's ok for men to act this way, but I'm done.

It is unfortunate that the review system will not allow you to do a review without giving a star rating because this book deserves no stars. I have reached my saturation point with Mr. Woods' novels and I have read them all to this point. In retrospect, I believe that the last good ones were the Holly Barker series when she was Chief of Police in a small Florida town. In any event, this latest effort is an insult to the trees used to make the paper on which to print it. Fortunately, I bought the Kindle version and wasted only money and electrons. The prose are pedestrian and, as has been the case in most of Mr. Woods recent efforts, the novel is merely a compilation of sex scenes tied together by a feeble plot. I am far from a prude but I want the sex scenes in my novels to contribute to the plot. I don't want the plot to be an excuse to string together one sex scene after another. I have told my wife not to waste her time reading this one and I will purchase no more of Mr. Woods' novels until such time as I read a review by someone (other than myself obviously) who indicates that he has returned to producing quality novels.

Ditto on other negative comments on this book. I couldn't have said it better myself. I have been a long time reader of Stuart Woods and the Barrington series, but NO MORE. I have removed Mr. Woods from my favorite authors list and WILL NOT waste any more of my time or money on his future novels in this series, or any other of his books. Shame on you Stuart Woods! Reader's don't waste your valued reading experience on this author!
