What I liked
1. Stone actually does some of the same stuff he used to do as a detective. I'm not a hater of "the rich and powerful Stone" but it's nice to see him call back some of those intimidation tactics and such from his cop days.
2. The story in this one is actually pretty good. A little more mystery than many of Woods' more recent Stone books. Of course, it's fairly obvious who the criminal is but finding the evidence to prove it feels like a callback to the "Stone was a cop" days.
What I disliked
1. Stone's ridiculous luck. A part of an armed robbery and didn't even take a gun-handle to the noggin.
2. Also, Stone's women for this particular book really didn't try all too hard.
Overall, not a bad book. I would read it again and my nit picks are small issues and not things that ruin the book.
While I enjoy Stone, I would love to see some of the other series get another chapter. Like with Holly. Granted she is not in Orchid Beach anymore, but her adventures in her position with the government would be fun. Ed Eagle? Maybe not so much. Rick Barron? I loved the setting of old time Hollywood (one of my favorite authors was the late Stuart Kaminsky's Toby Peter's books).
Keep up the good work, Mr. Woods. Thank you for the adventure and keep them coming.

Nothing original about it,just a rework of the same theme,gets a bit boring after awhile.Same old lots of pretty girls falling all over Stone and more adding to his fortune.Seems he is a babe magnet and he makes money hand over fist.Do not find it very realistic or even al that interesting after a dozen or so books.
