Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Politics and peril mix in the newest Stone Barrington outing, which features a crucial assist from another familiar Woods’ hero, Santa Fe lawyer Ed Eagle. Stone and his sidekick, Dino, have traveled to Los Angeles, along with Kate Rule Lee, the First Lady–cum–CIA director, who is seeking the presidential nomination on the Democratic ticket. Her competition includes the lascivious vice president and a senator from New Mexico, whom Ed is in town to support. ­Political ­maneuvering isn’t the only thing Stone and his friends are facing: someone has sent a death threat via e-mail to the head of Kate’s Secret Service detail, and Ed’s murderous ex-wife, Barbara, is in town, as thirsty for Ed’s blood as ever. Luckily, Stone has his own canny instincts to go on as well as a powerful ally in Billy Burnett, a former CIA operative and enemy of the state for whom Stone secured a pardon. There’s more than enough action and intrigue to keep the pages turning in this exhilarating outing. --Kristine Huntley

Customer Reviews

IT is fast exciting and very interesting.
Foxy Lady
The story line seemed disjointed, and little attention was paid to Stone while too much attention was paid to politics.
GrandmaG
No character development, predictable plot and boring.

Why has the price of Woods' last 3 books nearly doubled in price from earlier Kindle editions? They certainly have not gotten TWICE as well written! Maybe Woods should try to put out ONE good book a year rather than several mediocre ones at inflated prices.

Without a doubt, this is the last Stuart Woods book that I will buy! I have read him for years and have noticed that his books keep getting worse - almost childish in content. I recently read one of his earlier books (Run Before the Wind - 1983 - his 4th book) and it was absolutely wondeful. It is hard to believe that he has gone from a talented writer to one who rests on his laurels and now churns out crap. He sure takes the easy way out now. No substance, trite story lines, and too much into threading his political views into his troublesome storylines. I think that he has finally hit the bottom. Time to retire your pen!

I want my money back. What a joke! Okay, let's summarize. Stone is now having sexual relations with a different girl. Billy tries to assassinate a sicko women, who is the ex-wife of Stone's friend. Then 2 cops enter storyline and that goes nowhere. Then those cops earlier know both of the psycho's names and then which hotel to go to without any reference in book and the book then mentions they knew about the house for sale without,again,no mention or prelude. Unbelievable!! Then the cops know she left for either London or Oakland. But I guess the book was about Kate Rule getting pregnant and democratic nomination. No suspense, intrigue or who-done-it!! What a waste of my day.

I keep telling myself to quit wasting my money and time with Stuart Woods. With this one I finally got the message. Whatever happened to the author who wrote 'Under The Lake'?

Terrible book. This piece of trash would have been better classified as a Democratic talking points non-fiction I really don't care what Woods political views are. He should stick to his earlier style of writing, especially for Stone. One more of this tripe and he's lost this reader.

I am a Stone Barrington fan, and eagerly await the publication of each new novel. This one, however, was just not up to par. The story line seemed disjointed, and little attention was paid to Stone while too much attention was paid to politics. It seemed as though Mr. Woods is struggling for new adventures for his character.

I noticed in woods last novel how anti republican and how hollywood liberal democrat he is.now he shows it in his books.To suggest dr ben carson a child Nero surgeon is smart as a typical republican is a slam and insult. This will be my last ever woods book. Such a shame...chief was such a good start. David c francis

The worst Stone Barrington book yet. I hate having politics shoved down my throat. I am Independent so no ax to grind because of Democrat but come on this book was terrible. I have listened to everyone of these books but one more like this and Woods has lost me for good
