A Short Forever......zzzzzzz,
This review is from: The Short Forever (Stone Barrington) (Hardcover)Stuart oh Stuart where have ye gone? Please don't tell me I have to put you to pasture with the likes of Grisham and Clancy. Put Stone to rest and write something fresh. (I know that rhymes, it was not intended)
Sorry folks but this book is as predictable as the last 3 Stone B. novels. Stone finds a new squeeze...he screws it up....finds another one to pass the time...they have uninhibited sex...Arrington shows up out of the blue...messes that up....yawn. Dino comes to the rescue. (The only saving grace, except for the poor mafioso jokes)
Has the writing gone to this? Where are the thrillers like Palindrome, Heat, Santa Fe Rules, White Cargo, or Chiefs? Heck Orchid Beach is ten times better than this mind numbing drival. It kills me to type this. I LOVE Stuart Woods. But I do not think I will spend another dime on his hardbacks until Stone is gone, or at least put on the back burner for a few years. The next book will be a library rental. Please Mr. Woods prove me wrong on the next one!
