    "Unique" would be an understatement.

    I've read more Stuart Woods novels than I'd care to admit. L.A. Times isn't a Stone Barrington book; I DON'T like the Stone Barrington series because I really don't like the "Stone Barrington" character... self-serving, somehow sexist, and perpetually presented in a conceited light--once you've stopped and untangled it all. That said, the protagonist in L.A. Times is all these things but in an ever so subtly more sinister way. The plot of this book slowly simmers to a boil as you find yourself more and more deeply immersed into the socipath's mind. Perhaps I was just expecting something else from this author basing an assumption on my previous experience with him (Dead in the Water, Swimming to Catalina) but the plot's acrobatics culminate into a genuinely dark and supremely executed conclusion. This is a book you'll think about for weeks long after you've finished it.

    Page-turner

    I was rooting for the hero/villain in this thoroughly engaging story. It appears Woods has been a good writer from early 1990's as well.

    It is what it is...

    It looks like most Of the reviews that were posted when I added this to my wish list a few months back have been removed and replaced with more facorable ones. Much of the criticism was regarding stagnant characters andrecycled plot. I have read thebulk of this series and know this to be somewhat true. However, paet of the appeal or risk of reading a series isthat they do, by their very nature, fall into a formula type pattern. Having said that, this book and the rest ofthe series can be judged as decent summer reading and nothing more glamorous than that. Those of you offended by Barringtons' arrogance need look no further than Woods' post script to figure howthat came about.
