once on of my favorites he has become the Danielle Steel of the mystery writers. Between sex and eating at Elaine's there isn't much of a story as far as I am concerned. The biggest mystery is how so many people here loved it but in the book clubs felt like I did. did we all read the same book?

Some, but only some, of the conversations between lawyer Stone Barrington and his friends and secretary are entertaining. Other than those tiny morsels, the book isn't worth reading even if you're confined to bed for a couple of months. This is definitely one of those old-fashioned guy fantasy books, with a hero so irresistibly handsome and sexy that every beautiful woman he meets demands to bed him, and so incredibly (seriously incredibly) virile he can keep going over and over night after night. The plot has more coincidences than a soap opera. Events proceed so quickly the reader could almost, but unfortunately not, miss the holes in the story. Characterization is minimal, and the descriptions seem aimed at those with an extremely limited vocabulary. It's the story of the old 'every woman wants him, every man wants to be him' kind of guy who can beat the worst criminals, get all the ladies worth getting, and do some serious drinking afterward. It's been done better by a lot of other writers.

I've read a couple of Stuart Woods' books and this one left me lukewarm. I felt like he just threw some characters into a cookie cutter plot to get a book published. Didn't seem like he had his heart into this story line.

Normally, I really like Stuart Woods' books. However, this book seemed to have more sex than mystery. Too much "filler" (sex), not enough substance.

I have been Reading Stuart Woods books for many, many years and have always enjoyed them. This was a good, quick read. It seems to me though, that this book is close to being a short story. I would have been upset and disappointed if I had spent the amount on the cover ($25.95) for a book that I could read in such a short time. I have noticed that many authors are putting out books in this fashion. Larger fonts, more spacing, a thin book, more money. It just doesn't work for me. It is the type of book that I would have waited for my turn to come up at the public library. I have come to expect more from Mr. Woods. The story delivered but left me wondering where the rest of it was when I closed the book a few hours after starting it.

The plot was good and I enjoy a good mystery. I found some of the behavior of the main character quite unbelievable. There was too much bed bouncing for my taste. At least it was not too descriptive. This is definitely an adult book - I would not recommend for teens

Seriously folks, this book is an absolute waste of money, the humour is poor, the plot whilst good was poorly developed. Im no prude , but the relevance of the sex scenes was completly lost.

A white she cat with shattered marks expanding from her chest in silver pads in. Here eyes are ice cold blue. She nods to the leader wanting to join.
