Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
This time, Woods's variations on a homicidal theme include gold diggers, an angry husband who fakes his own death, a gullible computer billionaire, several ex-lovers, and a fistful of Palm Beach mobsters. As usual, lawyer Stone Barrington manages to sort it all out just by the very last page.
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
In the seventh thriller featuring cop-turned-lawyer Stone Barrington and his old sidekick NYPD Lt. Dino Bacchetti, the prolific and urbane Woods is at the top of his consistently bestselling form. In the middle of a New York City blizzard, Thad Shames, a wealthy computer tycoon, offers Stone a small fortune and the opportunity to escape the arctic cold if he will fly to glitzy Palm Beach, Fla., and find a femme fatale Shames knows only as Liz. With the help of Callie Hodges, Shames's sensual young Girl Friday, Stone wastes little time finding Liz, but discovers she is really Allison Manning, a woman he saved from the gallows a few years back (Dead in the Water, 1997). Now known as Elizabeth Harding, she fears her first husband a murderer who Stone believed had been executed is alive and may be stalking her. Not to be deterred from wooing and wedding Liz, Shames asks Stone to protect her. Stone himself is besieged by women: first, the delectable Callie, then his old girlfriend Arrington Calder (L.A. Dead, 2000) and finally, Liz, who suggests a m nage trois with Callie. In the midst of these amorous adventures, Stone consults Dino back in New York, trying to ID a man who fits the stalker's description, and Dino flies in just in time to be involved in a shootout in a Worth Avenue restaurant. Loaded with perfumed sex, sleek jets and yachts, lavish homes, boutiques, gourmet cuisine, quirky twists and nonstop action, Woods's pulpy pedestrian plot is grand fun. Simultaneous audio. (Apr. 23) Forecast: As frothy as ever, but more carefully plotted than L.A. Dead, Woods's latest should scale the charts, given a hefty boost by the book clubs (Doubleday and Mystery Guild main selections; BOMC and Literary Guild alternate selections), a national ad/promo campaign and a 15-city author tour.

Library Journal
Woods's cop-turned-lawyer Stone Barrington finds himself in beautiful Palm Beach, FL, during the winter season becoming reacquainted with a case he thought he closed years ago. It all started when Thad Shames, a wealthy dot-com tycoon, hires Barrington (for a considerable remuneration) to find the girl of his dreams, a girl he knows only as Liz. Barrington finds her, only to discover that she is really Allison Manning, a client he defended against murder charges several years ago (Dead in the Water) and whom he believed to be dead. Now very much alive and involved in an insurance fraud scheme as well as coping with an elusive stalker, she is delighted to meet Barrington again and request that he look into her troubles. The suspense leading up to the d nouement is excellent. In the unabridged version, well read by Dick Hill, the character development, the involvement of Palm Beach local color, and Barrington's attraction to Callie, Shames's beautiful assistant, is very good and nicely detailed. Tony Roberts's abridged set keeps up with the suspense and some of the character development; his talent with voice inflections is very entertaining. But this listener missed the total picture that Woods provides in his detailed, well-developed story, thus preferring the longer version. A good choice for audio collections. Steven J. Mayover, formerly with Free Lib. of Philadelphia Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Welcome back to Stone Barrington's world of felony glamour, where the pantry's always well stocked with beluga caviar, 9-mm. ammo, quality sex, and perps with more lives than Wile E. Coyote. The leading retread is Allison Manning, the ex-lover Stone last saw when he was getting her acquitted of killing her husband Paul (Dead in the Water, 1997). When Stone jets down from New York to find the mysterious "Liz" who entranced computer billionaire Thad Shames in Palm Beach-a job that would hardly be worthy of a man as well-dressed as Stone if Thad weren't dangling a fat block of stock from his latest IPO-of course she turns out to be Allison with red hair. There's a problem, though: Paul still seems to be alive too, and gunning for the wife who cleared $12 million on their conspiracy to fake his death. Allison's convinced that she saw Paul only recently-or did she? Glimpsing the supposed Paul again, she seems a lot less certain that graphic designer Paul Bartlett really is him. While Stone's struggling to protect Allison, or Liz, from Paul and from the insurance company she defrauded while making sure his latest inamorata, Shames chef Callie Hodges, doesn't get jealous of his past with her, complications from earlier seasons keep popping up again like summer reruns. Stone's former true love Arrington Calder makes a strategic appearance just in time to make Callie jealous of her, and Stone's estranged wife Dolce Bianchi, the Mafia bride from hell (L.A. Dead, 2000), is rumored to be on her way too. Will Thad's nuptials be broken up by murderous Paul, glamorous Arrington, or Dolce-armed, as in Stone's nightmares, with two brandy snifters and a pistol? Environmentalists rejoice:Thisproduct contains 80% recycled characters and storylines. And since nobody important gets killed, they'll all be available for next season's installment, just in case you misplace your copy of this one.

Meet the Author

Stuart Woods
Stuart Woods was born in the small town of Manchester, Georgia. He graduated from the University of Georgia with a B.A. in sociology and moved to Atlanta, where he enlisted in the Air National Guard. In the fall of 1960, Woods moved to New York in search of a career in writing, and remained there for a decade working in advertising, with the exception of ten months spent in Mannheim, Germany with the National Guard during the Berlin Wall crisis of 1961-62.



An attack of wanderlust drew Woods to London, where he worked in advertising agencies until the idea of writing a novel called him to a small flat in the stableyard of a castle in County Galway, Ireland. There, Woods completed one hundred pages of a novel before he discovered sailing, after which, “everything went to hell. All I did was sail.”



Woods took his sailing to a higher level, competing in the Observer Singlehanded Transatlantic Race (OSTAR) in 1976, and the catastrophic Fastnet Race in 1979 in which fifteen competitors died. In October and November of that year, Woods sailed his friend’s yacht across the Atlantic, calling at the ports of Azores, Madeira and the Canary Islands, before finishing at Antigua in the Caribbean.



The next couple of years were spent in Georgia, where Woods wrote two non-fiction books: Blue Water, Green Skipper, an account of his Irish experience and the subsequent transatlantic race; and a travel guide entitled A Romantic Guide to the Country Inns of Britain and Ireland, which Woods says he wrote “on a whim.” W.W. Norton in New York bought the rights to Blue Water, Green Skipper, and published Woods’ first novel, Chiefs, in 1981. Chiefs won the Edgar Award from the Mystery Writers of America that year, was nominated for Palindrome, and was made into a six-hour television drama starring Charlton Heston for CBS. In 2006, Woods had two New York Times national bestsellers with Dark Harbor and Short Straw, and repeated the feat in 2007 with Fresh Disasters and Shoot Him If He Runs.



Woods, who has written thirty-three novels, currently resides in Florida, New York City and Maine.









Biography

Stuart Woods was born in 1938 in Manchester, Georgia. After graduating from college and enlisting in the Air National Guard, he moved to New York, where he worked in advertising for the better part of the 1960s. He spent three years in London working for various ad agencies, then moved to Ireland in 1973 to begin his writing career in earnest.

However, despite his best intentions, Woods got sidetracked in Ireland. He was nearly 100 pages into a novel when he discovered the seductive pleasures of sailing. "Everything went to hell," he quips on his web site "All I did was sail." He bought a boat, learned everything he could about celestial navigation, and competed in the Observer Singlehanded Transatlantic Race (OSTAR) in 1976, finishing respectably in the middle of the fleet. (Later, he took part in the infamous Fastnet Race of 1979, a yachting competition that ended tragically when a huge storm claimed the lives of 15 sailors and 4 observers. Woods and his crew emerged unharmed.)

Returning to the U.S., Woods wrote two nonfiction books: an account of his transatlantic sailing adventures (Blue Water, Green Skipper) and a travel guide he claims to have written on a whim. But the book that jump-started his career was the opus interruptus begun in Ireland. An absorbing multigenerational mystery set in a small southern town, Chiefs was published in 1981, went on to win an Edgar Award, and was subsequently turned into a television miniseries starring Charlton Heston.

An amazingly prolific author, Woods has gone on to pen dozens of compelling thrillers, juggling stand-alone novels with installments in four successful series. (His most popular protagonists are New York cop-turned-attorney Stone Barrington, introduced in 1991's New York Dead, and plucky Florida police chief Holly Barker, who debuted in 1998's Orchid Beach.) His pleasing mix of high-octane action, likable characters, and sly, subversive humor has made him a hit with readers -- who have returned the favor by propelling his books to the top of the bestseller lists.

Good To Know

Some fascinating facts about Stuart Woods:

His first job was in advertising at BBDO in New York, and his first assignment was to write ads for CBS-TV shows. He recalls: "They consisted of a drawing of the star and one line of exactly 127 characters, including spaces, and I had to write to that length. It taught me to be concise."

He flies his own airplane, a single-engine turboprop called a Jetprop, and tours the country every year in it, including book tours.

He's a partner in a 1929 motor yacht called Belle and spends two or three weeks a year aboard her.

In 1961-62, Woods spent 10 months in Germany with the National Guard at the height of the Berlin Wall Crisis.

In October and November of 1979, he skippered a friend's yacht back across the Atlantic, with a crew of six, calling at the Azores, Madeira, and the Canary Islands and finishing at Antigua in the Caribbean.

Chapter One


Elaine's, late.

    Stone Barrington finished his osso buco as Elaine wandered over from another table and sat down.

    "So?" she asked.

    "'So?' What kind of question is that?"

    "It means, 'tell me everything.'"

    Stone looked up to see Dino struggling to shut the front door behind him. Dino was his former partner, now a lieutenant, head of the detective squad at the 19th Precinct.

    Dino came over, sloughing off a heavy topcoat. "Jesus," he said, hanging up his coat, muffler and hat. "There's already six inches of snow out there, and there's at least thirty knots of wind."

    "How are we going to get home?" Stone wondered aloud.

    "Don't worry, my driver's out there now, putting the chains on the car." Dino now rated a car and driver from the NYPD.

    Stone shook his head. "Poor bastard. It's tough enough being a cop without drawing you for a boss."

    "What do you mean?" Dino demanded, offended. "The kid's getting an education working for me. They don't teach this stuff at the academy."

    "What, how to put chains on a lieutenant's car?"

    "All he has to do is watch me, and he learns."

    Stone rolled his eyes, but let this pass. They drank their champagne in silence for a moment.

    "So?" Dino asked,finally.

    "That's what I just asked him," Elaine said.

    "So, I'm back." Stone had returned from an extended stay in LA a few days before.

    "I knew that," Dino said. "So?"

    "Can't either of you speak in complete sentences?"

    "So," Dino said, "how's Mrs. Barrington?"

    "Dino," Stone said, "if you're going to start calling her that, I'm going to start carrying a gun."

    "I heard," Elaine said.

    "I'm not surprised," Stone replied. "Dino has a big mouth."

    "So, how is she?" Dino demanded.

    "I talked to Eduardo today," Stone said. "Her shrink doesn't want me to see her. Not for a while."

    "That's convenient," Dino said.

    "You bet it is," Stone agreed.

    "You feeling guilty, Stone?" Elaine asked.

    "Sure he is," Dino said. "If he had just taken my advice ..."

    "Mine, too," Elaine echoed.

    "All right, all right," Stone said. "If I had only taken your advice."

    "Arrington is for you," Elaine said.

    "Arrington isn't exactly speaking to me," Stone said.

    "What does that mean?"

    "It means that if I call her, she's civil, but if I try to reason with her, she excuses herself and hangs up."

    "How's the boy?" Dino asked.

    "Peter's fine."

    "Does he know who his father is yet?"

    "Look, Dino, I don't know who his father is. It could just as well have been Vance as me. Not even Arrington knows. Nobody will, until we do the DNA testing."

    "And when does that happen?"

    "Arrington won't discuss it."

    "Keep after her."

    "I don't know if it's worth it," Stone said wearily. "I'm not sure it would make any difference."

    "Give her time," Dino said. "She'll come around."

    "You're a font of wisdom, Dino. Know any other relationship clichés?"

    "Every eligible man in the country is going to be after her," Elaine said.

    "What?" Stone asked.

    "She's Vance Calder's widow, dummy, and as such, she's very, very rich. Not to mention gorgeous. You'd better get your ass down to Virginia and win her back."

    "She knows where to find me," Stone said.

    Elaine rolled her eyes.

    Another blast of frigid air blew into the room as the front door opened again.

    "It's your pal Eggers," Dino said, nodding toward the door.

    Bill Eggers came over to the table. He didn't unbutton his coat. "Hi, Elaine, hi, Dino," he said, then he turned to Stone. "I've been calling you all evening. I should have known I'd find you here." Bill Eggers was the managing partner of Woodman & Weld, the extremely prestigious law firm with which Stone was associated, in a very quiet way.

    "My home away from home," Stone said. "What's up?"

    "I've got a client in the car that you have to see tomorrow morning."

    "Bring him in. I'll buy him a drink."

    "He won't come in."

    "Who is he?"

    "No names, for the moment."

    "You have secrets from us, Bill?" Elaine asked.

    "You bet I do," Eggers replied. "Ten o'clock sharp, Stone?"

    "Ten o'clock is fine; sharp depends on the snow. Your office?"

    "Penthouse One, at the Four Seasons. He doesn't want to be seen with you."

    "Tell him to go fuck himself," Stone said.

    "Stone," Eggers said, "get this thing done and get it done right, and you could end up a rich man."

    "Ten o'clock, sharp," Stone said.

    Keep 'em comin'!

    Heard him speak at a writer's convention. Wish he could write as funny as he speaks. His work is great escapism -- clear writing, without the depth of Grisham or "heavier" murder mystery writers... but great fun!

    Stuart Woods Creates Many Twists and Turns in His Stories

    I have just discovered Stuart Woods books. In particular, I have enjoyed his Stone Barrington character most of all. Lots of action and always a surprise on the next page. His books are hard to put down and get some work done or go to sleep. He has kept me up several nights, but I'm not complaining.

    Witty, Mysterious, and Sexy

    I didn't know when I first picked up the book that was part of a series. I guess. There's a lot of back-story that isn't really explained thoroughly. Not the way it would be if this were the first time the reader learned about it. So, if you want to read this book--and I think you should--be aware of that. It didn't take long for me to figure out that was the way this story was going to be. A lot of characters that I felt I should know, but didn't. They were briefly explained, though, and I was glad for it. Although it appears I've picked up in the middle of Stone Barrington's life, I'm at least acquainted with him and those around him. But that's about all I felt: acquainted. I didn't feel as though I really knew anyone. Not even the characters I know were new to Stone. Really, it felt as though this entire book was written as a screenplay first, then converted to a novel by added a few more details. But not many. There were only details and descriptions where it seemed desperately required. The rest of the story consisted of explanatory dialogue, sex, random dialogue, and single sentences denoting where, what, or who the characters were doing/going. Still, I had a good feel for the story and all that was going on. It was simply written: no fanciful words where they weren't needed; no extended descriptions of a coffee table or something like that. I began and finished it in the same day, so that tells you it was a page-turner. There wasn't any hardcore suspense, but there was just enough of it to keep you interested in what was going to happen next. Just when one event seemed to come to a close, something else happened to open it wide up again. It moved rather quickly, which I enjoyed. It wasn't too quick, though, that I could not understand what was happening. A good deal of back-story was given to fascilitate it. It was well-played as a sexy mystery. I enjoyed trying to figure out "who done it," and I will admit that I already figured out part of the mystery about halfway through the story. I think other readers will, too. Still, the ending--while not a complete shock--was a mild surprise. It was a solid ending with things wrapping up in a nice way, but not so nice that the story had a "happy" ending. It actually did well at leading into the next installment (there's an excerpt at the end) and making me want to continue it. Very well played.

    This book should be titled ""All About Rosemarie Terenzio"

    I have read hundreds of books on my Nook and have not read anything written this poorly. More importantantly this book is mostly about the author and her life, not John Kennedy Jr's life. I found her constant foul language uncalled for and in very poor taste. She misrepresented what this book was about when she was interviewed on her book tour. I was looking forward to reading this book and was very disappointed, as I am sure John Jr. would be too!

    Well....

    ...I really like Stuart Woods, but this is not my favorite. I'm reading the Stone Barrington books in sequence and was just very disappointed in this one. I personally thought it was easy to figure out and not a page turner. Out of respect for the author, I just couldn't go less than 3 stars.

    Stuart Woods another hit!!!

    Stuart Woods was a new author to me and again I am hooked. The character of Stone Barrington is terrific. Stone begins his career as a policeman but becomes a New York State lawyer. Clients draw him into one breathless mystery after another. The twists and turns keeps the reader turning page after page. His partner on the force, Dino, appears as his constant sidekick and reminder to stay inside the law when solving cases. Some clients appear in a second book but don't let that stop you from reading. Each book is a completed case filled with murder, intrigue, sex and excitement. The following is the list of how the Stone Barrington books were released: New York Dead: Dirt, Dead In The Water, Swimming On Catalina, Worst Fears Realized, LA Dead, Cold Paradise, The Short Forever and Dirty Work. Be sure and search out the other books written by Stuart Wood and his other stars of fiction.

    One of his best!

    If you've read and enjoyed Dead in the Water, you must read Cold Paradise. An excellent blend of characters and plot, both from past adventures and newly introduced. So real, it's as if you could read the account of this story in the news, rather than in this delightful novel. My congratulations to Stuart Woods for one of his finest!

    Excellent Read

    Stuart Woods had done it again. He just keeps Stone Barrington moving from one interesting encounter to the next. My first experience with Woods' work was with the title 'Worst Fears Realized' and ever since then I have been hooked. There are enough twists in this story to keep the reader guessing. Thanks Stuart for another great book. Looking forward to the next one...
