Not as awful as "Son of Stone" but not great, either

As always, this entry into the Stone Barrington series is easy to read and move quickly. It's also MUCH better than "Son of Stone," but then it would be nearly impossible to be worse. Get it from the library - don't spend any money on this.

As always, this entry into the Stone Barrington series is easy to read and move quickly. It's also MUCH better than "Son of Stone," but then it would be nearly impossible to be worse. Get it from the library - don't spend any money on this.

This book has a plot, improbable as it may be, and even a secondary plot, also improbable. But that's why I like fiction - I can suspend my sense of reality for a while. And there's also a mystery that moves along amongst all the bed-hopping to keep your interest. The problem is that it's not a very good mystery - I picked out the murderer early on and, even when I thought Stone and Dino and Holly had reached the same conclusion it turned out they missed all the obvious clues. All of them. Maybe all the bed-hopping drained the blood from their brains, or maybe all the scotch and Knob Creek just killed too many brain cells.

I gave this 2 stars because it wasn't as bad as "Son of Stone" (which didn't even deserve 1 star), and like so many others here am wondering if Woods is just getting tired of the character or has been outsourcing.

    recommended listening

    great job by reader as always in the stone barrington series. cannot recommend highly enough as you can listen to over and over again. tony Roberts reads and sounds exactly like the late actor Humphrey bogart - for you bogart (& stuart woods fans), of which I am one, you will enjoy.
