Carnal Curiosity (Stone Barrington Series #29) by Stuart Woods

When crime hits Manhattan’s rarefied circles, Stone Barrington finds himself in the bull’s-eye in this #1 New York Times bestseller.

Stone Barrington seems to have a knack for being in the wrong place at the wrong time. When Manhattan’s elite are beset by a series of clever crimes—and Stone is a material witness—he and his former partner Dino Bacchetti find themselves drawn into the world of high-end security and fraud, where insider knowledge and access are limited to a privileged few, and the wealthy are made vulnerable by the very systems meant to keep them safe. As Stone and Dino delve deeper into their investigation, they learn that the mastermind behind the incidents may have some intimate ties to Stone...and that the biggest heist is still to come.

Very weak work. Got suckered in again to believe this would fall under the definition as an mystery, thriller crime novel. It hit me like a ton of bricks, "His work is like the old days soap operas!" No skill, imagination but lots of sex, sex, sex!. His book contract MUST be loaded with incentives to do a book a month! WOW! Not a bad gig to make zillions! I AM DONE!

My first and last Stone Barrington book.  I agree with every negative review written by the readers below.  I couldn't finish it.

You know, if you removed the alcoholism and the nonsense associated with it from this novel, you'd be left with a brochure instead of a book. And this applies to the entire Stone Barrington series.

I have read all of Stuart Woods books. I use to love the Stone Barrington series but this book is pathetic. The out of balance polictical rambling is sad. Woods has apparently lost the ability to write a mystery. Check out from library don't buy.

This series has declined so much - each new title is worse than the previous one. Woods just seems to be turning them out so quickly as if that is his purpose - quantity not quality. The writing is elementary and reads as if it was just dashed off. I used to recommend Woods' books to my customers a few years back. No longer can I do that. For folks who appreciate a more "literary" mystery thriller, look elsewhere. What's with the Author's Note that appears at the conclusion of all his books? They are the same in each book and are quite condescending and show a lack of appreciation for his readers and the booksellers who market his titles.

In my opinion the Stone Barrington series are repetitive. I had to force myself to finish reading this book. It started off very slow and did not inspire me to finish reading it. Mostly bad sex and not a good plot. Truthfully I'm not sure how it even was published.

The story is very good, but it is almost the same thing each time especially the first two books I have read. They eat, they have a crime to solve and they eat some more and they drive fast cars have sex etc. etc. Fun and fast reading.

I have read all of Woods Stone Barrington novels. His novels are losing all content. There are no twists in his plots and they are getting very predictable. I think Woods is getting obsessed with sex and he is living out his fantasies through Stone. I would not recommend this book.

The worst.  Have read every $tuart Wood novel and especially liked the Stone Barrington series until now.  Really? Ten minutes after he meets his insurance adjuster in chapter 1 no less, he's plied her with enough alcohol to bed her.  By chapter 8 with nocrime or mystery in sight I said enough.  Add to that the continuing political drivel and there should be a refund for all.  To say this book stinks would be too kind.  Ive come to believe that Stone should have VD by now with all his reckless promiscuous sex.  Mr Wood a  crime novel or retire and be done with it all.

Very disappointing. Woods' books have always had left wing politics involved, but now, it is the main story plot. I buy a book to relax not to hear a lecture on Democrat politics and how bad Republicans and Fox news are. Besides that, the story line meanders everywhere. The first Barrington novels were good, these later ones are extremely disappointing.

As usual, Stuart has written an easy read. It was very good except Mr. Barrington needs to begin exercising restraint with beautiful women!

Stone can get into more trouble without trying. He's into it again.
