Â Stuart Woods is in top formâ¦and so is his perennially popular hero, Stone Barrington!
From Manhattan’s mahogany-paneled law offices to its modern penthouse lofts and dimly lit nightclubs, the trail of entrapment and murder leads to a shocking act that no one could ever have anticipated.

There was still enough interesting stuff. And since the stories were, I thought, interesting enough, it didn't bother me that they got wrapped up suddenly. In fact, I actually liked the way the Herbie story ended. Also, I liked Herbie's story BETTER than what was going on with Stone.
I think there were a few too many people in the book, and that may be why it was a little off. I found about half the women boring: the two theatrical women and Shelley. I very much enjoyed the two policewomen and Herbie's secretary. Dink and his two friends seemed a little like caricatures, although Dink himself had just enough life to keep me interested in the story.
So, all in all, I enjoyed it enough to go back and start over once I finished reading it the first time. Skipping the parts that bored me, and there were many, there was - as I said before - still enough to be interesting.
Sidenote: When I heard Elaine had died, I wondered how Stuart Woods was going to handle it in his next story. I think he did okay. I happen to like PJ Clarke's, so I like that Stone and Dino may become regulars there.
In any case, definitely not the best Stone Barrington novel, but not so bad that I regretted buying it. Even at $12.99. I hope the next one will be better, but as long as they don't get any worse, I'm still a Stuart Woods fan.
I'm sorry they won't be at Elaine's any more, but now they seem to be gathering at PJ Clark's in this book. I like Dino, too, but how much time can a Lt. in the NYPD take off?
In this book, Mr. Woods introduces us to the previously rediculous charter of "Herbie" who appears to grow up and into the "new Stone Barrington". Really? Seriously? How did this happen and so quickly - it is unbelievable.
I like to read a book with a plot that gets you interested and keeps you guessing until the end.
Hope the next book is better - or this may be the last one for me. Its a shame.
What I loved the most was the continuity of the principal character, Stone and Dino, and several of the repeats, especially the amazing Herbie Fisher whose turnaround (over a few volumes) is an amazing success story for Stone.
I enjoyed other characters, good and bad. and the imaginative plots in all of the books. All were exciting, with unexpected twists. I hope that Stuart Woods will write more Stone Barrington books; in the meantime I'll turn to the Holly Fisher and Ed Eagle series, both of whom appeared in the Barrington books.
Keep up the great work, Stuart
This will be the last Stuart Woods book upon which I'll waste money. A total waste of time.
