Stuart Woods used to be a good, solid, creative writer -- well able to spin an engrossing yarn with depth and intelligence. I don't know what happened but his last few books have been jokes and a sacriledge from a writer we all know can do so much better. This book is stupid in that nothing happens -- Teddy Fay continues to outsmart everyone, Barbara Eagle just continues and the rest of the characters stroll through now and then just to make an appearance. No one does anything and everything is the same at the end as it was in the beginning. I have every book Woods ever wrote and I have loved his work for a long time -- to seem him turn out crap like this is really heartbreaking......Save your money and buy Lee Child or Michael Connolly.......

I have always been a big Stuart Woods fan but have been extremely disappointed in his last two or three books. In this one he brings in every character he has ever written about, with the exception of the Stone Barrington bunch, and the book goes nowhere. All of the "bad guys" get away with whatever ridiculous crimes they've committed. There's enough lesbian sex and the usual Woods sex romps to make one's head spin and the "good guys" all get screwed...both literally and figuratively. In other words, much ado about nothing. It's not even funny. At least Evanovich's screwball comedies are entertaining. I'm really glad that I got it from a book club for a penny because I would never pay for this drivel.

Read all of Wood's books. This book was horrible- what a way to ruin a reputation.

Stuart Woods' last several outings have all been terrible. His writing has always been simplistic, but his earlier works still managed to hold your interest. In other words, they had interesting characters and a plot. Enter Santa Fe Edge. The simplistic writing continues, but this book like his other recent ones lacks any plot. Worse, he mixes up characters from his previous serials and introduces several newer ones. Then they run around advancing rapidly from scene to scene with no plot developing and nothing of interest happening. The book reminds me of one of those Love Boat episodes where you follow the lives of a dozen couples, whose paths cross from time to time, but nothing really happens. The book just ends without any plot being developed or anything being tied up. I guess he's laying the groundwork to drag these same stale characters into his next Stone Barrington or Holly Barker book. Lucky for me I've had enough and won't bother to pick up his next rag.

I have not read any Woods books before but this book was awful. Too many characters and nothing happen throughout the book. I would not recommend this to anyone.

Barbara Eagle Keeler continues her effort to escape from Mexico's El Diablo Prison for Women, as her mission remains unfinished. Her obsession is to kill her former husband Santa Fe lawyer Ed Eagle. At the same time that Barbara works her latest ploy, CIA agent Holly Barker wants a second chance at nabbing rogue CIA agent Teddy Fay (see Hothouse Orchid). Fay opts to remain in Santa Fe because he assesses Agent Todd Bacon as too inexperienced to cause him any issues. Eagle gets his client golf pro Tip Hanks free of the charge of spousal homicide. However, Tip remains in a sand trap as his troubles still mount. The latest Eagle thriller (see Santa Fe Dead and Santa Fe Rules)is an entertaining tale in which all roads lead to the New Mexico city. Eagle has recovered from his Mexican gangs escapades though he knows who still stalks him even from behind bars. His defense of the golf pro is fun to follow as is Barker's (see Blood Orchid and Iron Orchid) visit. Although over the edge with questionable incidents that make things easier for the heroes, Santa Fe Edge is an exciting novel as Stuart Woods uses two of his series leads to the delight of his fans.

I have read many of his books, liked them all. This book has 3 stories, 3 beginings, 3 middles, and no endings Just hooks to get you buy again. Never again for me. Too bad enjoyed his other books.

Stuart Woods always produces good, fun to read books. Santa Fe Edge seems to almost be a set up to the next book. The only characters not to show up were Stone Barrington and Dino. Teddy Fay and Holly Barker were there with one sub-plot and then in a totally different plot were Ed, his new wife, and his former wife, still trying to kill him. Cupie and Vittorio are back too. Odd, but the two sub-plots never cross paths. The most disheartening thing about this book is that it does not seem to end. It just stops...perhaps ready to pick up where this one leaves off. If there is to be a volume 2, I'm ready.

Ok book with lots of local places mentioned. Twists and turns of plot were enjoyable and entertaining.

Disappointing! A chase story involving a couple of bad people and other people running around and trying to catch them while engaging in kinky activities involving money, airplanes, and sex. I loved this author's earlier books but definitely not the recent ones.

The earlier novels in this series were definitely better. I almost didn't finish it. I was put off by the Woods' casual attitude towards the rape of Barbara Eagle in a Mexican prison. This was more like a soap opera - lots of sex and a little plot loosely tied together.

My first Stuart Woods read. One of my critique partners has read all of Woods' books and kept pressuring me to read one. I did. It was fast, the scenes went by along with the chapters like rounds of a prizefight. When I was done I examined what I had read. It was interesting, not educational, and not inspiring. BUT it was very entertaining and if you are reading for fast and easy entertainment and you like some sex thrown in to titillate you grab this book. Stuart Woods knows how to put a fast paced novel together. So much happens in a scene and a short chapter you feel like you've got your foot on the accelerator of a Corvette.
