    This was my first Stuart Woods book - and will probably be my la

    This was my first Stuart Woods book - and will probably be my last. Publishers Weekly said it read like a lukewarm Miami Vice episode. Yes, it was that dated, but only cheesier - more like an A-Team episode! The main character is an unbelieveable, James Bond-esque action hero, appearing to be merely a wealthy businessman. Not only is there "strange sexual innuendo" (see next review) with his own daughter, but the character shows little regard for the fate of his wife (or son). A much more interesting character was Bluey, but even he goes undeveloped. For a better "men's action-adventure" read, try Nelson Demille.

    I Also Recommend:

    Strange Sexual Innuendo

    I only read the first few chapters of this book and just could not force myself to read further. The first several chapters are so focused on the main character's musings about his daughter's creamy thighs and buttocks, how sexy she is, how she looks in her itty bitty bikini, and on and on. I was just plain creeped out and couldn't go any futher. I am not sure what possessed this author to have a male main character mentally discussing and thinking of his adult daughter in this twisted way. Whatever it was, it ruined the book for me and I was not able to finish it. I would like my money back but feel since I read the first few chapters, it's now used and I shouldn't. Even so, I am upset to line this guy's pocket.

    more from this reviewer

    This is an exciting thriller

    Off the Caribbean coast of South America, they assaulted his yacht, taking him prisoner. They raped his wife Katie and daughter Pixie before sinking the vessel killing the mother and abducting the teen although he believes both is dead. Yet they gleefully allowed millionaire Wendell Catledge to live knowing he cannot get to them, but will always remember how helpless he was and is.<BR/><BR/>The thugs joyfully returned to Columbia while Cat works every angle to avenge what they ruthlessly did to his loved ones. .He lives for that only one thing: revenge until a call informs him his Pixie lives. He plans to rescue his daughter. The vicious Anaconda will find this American electronic expert, accompanied by Feds and a TV reporter, who is coming for him. He wants his daughter back and nothing will stop him from succeeding on his mission especially a snake.<BR/><BR/>This is an exciting thriller which seems timely with modern day pirates though on a different continent. The story line is fast-paced from the moment the assault begins and never takes a breather with an explosive climax. Although the South Americans from Anaconda to the pirates to the Columbian law enforcement are one dimensional cookie cutter stereotypes, fans will root for Cat to rescue Pixie.<BR/><BR/>Harriet Klausner

    White Cargo eats like a smooth chocolate bar

    Stuart Woods continues to impress me. I've been an avid fan from the beginning of his career and it never fails, I can't just take one bite and savor it, I have to eat the whole book in one sitting. White Cargo was a great read.

    An action packed adventure

    The novel was very good, it was hard to put down. I really liked how the book was action packed. I liked how Cat took it into his own hands to take revenge on the people who had taken his daughter. I also liked how the author used such a realistic plot. At some times I thought the pace was a little slow but it made up for it with more action. If you're looking for a good book to read and you like a book with a lot of action then I would recommend this book to you.
