But for those who gave this book rave reviews - especially the ones who complimented Wood's "research" : this plot features a pile of 1966 vintage $100 bills which - more than once - are mentioned as being different from today's by the "special red seal". Nice Google work, Stu, but did you forget that the portarit of Franklin since 1996 is freakin' 3x the size of the older bills? Do you really need to have color vision to notice a 1966 bill looks different?
Please! Get real! NO!
Mr. Wood is so lazy on his storyline, I doubt he spends more than a day to write this book. This "new" Stone is so dumb I'm surprise he can find his own bathroom.
Where are the book editor, sleeping?
Not so spoiler alert:
This plot is so stupid I can't take it. Hank the "kidnap victim" opens and answers the door as Stone found the house where Hank was suppose to be held ransom, She was not tied up, claims to have not ran away when the kidnaper gone shopping because she was afraid of the dark? Really that's believable?
Than Stone can't return the ransom 5 million dollars, has to hold it in his house for some time. Than Stone "dates" Hank again, this time giving her the key of the house with the security code, where the money happen to be. REALLY, REALLY!!? What a surprise Stone was rob and got tied up... what the hell? Stone is so dumb in this story, no wonder he's call "Stone".
Please Mr. Wood, take 2 whole days next time you write a book.
