I have to agree with the other reviewers: Stuart Woods books of late have been utterly disappointing (I have read them all) and suggest that either someone else is ghost-writing or Woods has lost interest in generating quality reading entertainment (both are common with numerous writers who reach a certain level of success). This one is quite frankly implausible - that these two yahoos would be called in to perform this investigation instead of the FBI. Many other aspects of the characters lives are also implausible. If you are a die-hard Woods fan stuck on an airplane and you have absolutely nothing to read and this book is free then by all means read it but it is certainly not worth buying. We need to teach authors like Woods that crap will not be bought to get them to start putting their margarita's down, get off the beach in Antigua and start putting in some effort again!!!

I don't recall liking Woods' last Barrington novel, but this one was really terrible and it appears as if it was put together just for the paycheck. I won't write any spoilers, but suffice it to say that the villain had to be an imbecile to be caught by Stone and Dino. Maybe some villains are morons, but I think most people buy these books for the cat and mouse aspect of it/the good guys chasing the bad guys. This will be the last money I ever spend on a Stuart Woods novel.

I used to look forward to a new Stuart Woods novel. The last few years, not so much, and now, not at all. His recent books are more about, "Take two Viagra and call me in the morning" rather than developing a good story. The sex is raunchy, perverted and nonstop. And REALLY getting old. I feel more and more like his novels are being written to support his lifestyle, rather than engage the reader.

You have got to be kidding, the FBI couldn't find a brick with hair and lip stick on it but dino does after a year.This is the second book in a row Woods has let his readers down.

I wasn't too thrilled with the last Barrington novel but, this one is even more disappointing. Some horrible editing errors that make the novel a joke. If basic storytelling can't be held together in my view it's not worth a read and this book fails miserably. I don't want to give much away but when a clue is given just over halfway into the book and them completely ignored it not only annoys the reader, but makes the previous errors that much more annoying. One star is being generous.

I saw all the terrible reviews...but refused to believe it. I typically don't think these books are works of literary art, however, I always thoroughly enjoy them and can never put them down. This was REALLY REALLY bad. Terribly written, full of errors and rushed would be an understatement. I can't believe it was ever written, edited, or published. Everyone involved should be ashamed.

I have been a Stuart Woods fan for quite some time, but this book was pure laziness. I was even willing to give Woods the benefit of the doubt until I got to the part of the book when one of the characters gave away the perpetrator, and Stone Barrington simply ignored the clue, never shared with Dino, and still never mentioned the clue after the character providing the clue was murdered ostensibly staged as a suicide. This book is an insult to any reader's intellect and an abomination to his fans. Clearly Woods cares more about making money than writing a decent novel, or even respecting his fans. I will never waste my money on another one of his books. There are a lot of authors who are more deserving of my patronage. Woods' arrogance is asstounding.

First, I want my money back! I have read seven of the "Stone" series and enjoyed most of them. But, this one is terrible. Never again will I buy a Stuart Woods book.
