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.

I have read many of Mr. Woods' books and this has to be the worst. He lacks any type of closure of the story. His sex scenes and partners are not only highly improbable but extremely in poor taste. I like sex like any other guy, but let's get real.

Stone Barrington used to be a great character, but no more. He has been turned into some kind of cartoon character ... super sleuth, super stud, superman. It's silly.

Former NYPD homicide detective turned attorney Stone Barrington travels to Italy to marry his fiancée Dolce Bianci. Her father happens to be a rich and powerful capo with ties to both sides of the law as well as to the Vatican. In Italy, for Roman Catholics to be considered married they must have civil and church weddings.

The civil ceremony occurs, but before they tie the knot in church, Stone receives a phone call concerning Arrington, the woman he loves, who is married to famous movie star Vince Calder. In their home an unknown intruder killed Vince while Arrington was taking a bath. Arrington is placed in a psychiatric hospital demanding that Stone come to help her. Stone immediately leaves Italy to be at Arrington's side. He also agrees to represent her with the police and the probate court. Arrington cooperates with the police, but they arrest her on a charge of second-degree murder. Stone goes out of his way to protect the woman he still loves.

The sixth Barrington mystery is the best novel in the series. Stone is an honest, intelligent, but beleaguered individual, who goes the extra mile and a half for those he cherishes. As Stone muddles through his relationships with females, the climax to L.A. Dead remains outstanding even as many questions about the hero's personal life remain unanswered. With an exclamation point, Stuart Woods makes it evident that he is a force in the mystery genre.

As usual, Stone Barrington is something to behold. He manages to take control of situations that are involved and always come up with the answer. My husband and I read his books and we enjoy them. He holds your attention to the end.

I've read many Woods books with the character Stone Barrington. This one does not disappoint. It starts with a touch of Mafia & ends in Hollyweird with a compelling murder mystery. The humor between Barrington & his friend Dino is always my favorite part.

Stuart Woods continues to write his Stone Barrington novels with humorous,fast-moving plots. Always interesting secondary characters. I like that many of the secondary characters show up in different books in this series. These books are fast reads. The characters are well-defined, the storylines flow well.
