From the Back Cover
No Stone Unturned...
Trouble finds Stone smack in the middle of a romantic Mediterranean holiday. His trip to Venice -- with the fiery Mafia princess Dolce -- is cut short by a frantic phone call from half a world away. A celebrity murder has Los Angeles in an uproar and mysteriously threatens a former flame, Arrington Calder. And once he arrives there, amid Hollywood's sun and sin, he must plumb the depths of film society to find the killer -- before a court trial rips away his last chance at a life he once desperately wanted....

a very low opinion of women. Every women in his books is a nymphomaniac and throws herself at our hero who
just can't resist. Then we are treated to two or three chapters of sexual interactions in various positions culminating with the exhaustion of our hero and his penis. I simply skip these chapters because they contribute nothing to the stories, which are pedestrian at best. I was hoping his later work would show some improvement but it has not. I can't understand how Stuart Woods could sell 59 of these bodice rippers. I will not waste my money on any more of this author's work.
He pretty much nails the Hollywood crowd, even if Vance Calder seems, even in death, a bit 1930's.
However Stone again demonstrates he doesn't have enough blood for both his brain and his penis, and really screws up, pun fully intended. But, we have to remember Arrington was no angel either, and that's the reason why things got how they did.
And what is to become of Dolce, fair warning, that character ain't dead yet.
Like all Woods books there are a few flaws, Arrington gave birth to a daughter who is now a son, but that's an authors issue, not transgender. Another really good, can't put it down read.
If I have one problem consistently with Stuart Woods, I enjoy his books so much I read them in one sitting, and crave the next!
