I'm a Woods fan, and rereading the Stone Barrington series, and I can see the set up for later books, you really get to grow with Stone, and from a pilot's point of view, you can see his experience is growing, but this is the first time I caught Woods making a glaring error, he has the run-up speed in a Cessna 172 as 3,000 RPM, oops! Maximum engine speed is 2,700 RPM, run up is 1,700 RPM.
The story begins with Stone nursing a broken heart after Arrington left him and married Vance Calder, the dashing movie star we met in Dirt. When Arrington goes missing, a desperate Vance requests his help, and Stone flies to Hollywood to investigate. So far, so good; we have a damsel in distress and our hero on the trail... then, to me, the book goes off the rails. In what may be a life or death situation for pregnant Arrington, Stone is easily distracted, by the numerous women falling all over him and by accepting an (unbelievable!) offer to act in Vance's current movie. All this comes off as implausible, to say the least. Arrington may be in grave danger, the child she is carrying may be his... and his attention is easily diverted numerous times. The story has all the things we love about Stone- his sense of humor, incredible luck, plenty of action and a satisfying ending, but our hero could have easily solved the mystery much sooner had he actually tried!
