Overview

Unnatural Acts (Stone Barrington Series #23) by Stuart Woods

In Stuart Woods’s bestselling series, Stone Barrington discovers that some jobs don’t pay…

When a hedge fund billionaire hires Stone Barrington to talk some sense into his wayward son, it seems like an easy enough job; no one knows the hidden sins and temptations of the ultra-wealthy better than Stone. But as Stone and his erstwhile protégé, Herbie Fisher, probe deeper into the case—and an old one comes back to haunt him—he realizes that even he may have underestimated just how far some people will go to cover up their crimes—and commit new ones…

After reading this latest Stone Barrington SHORT STORY I have formed a new "appreciation" for Stuart Woods. Notice that later Barrington stories barely fill 200 pages? And Elaine is killed off in this story, closing the restaurant. Worse, Woods reveals that Barrington is a liberal, Republican-hating Democrat! I expect those of you who remain a BarringtonBoy will soon see Bloomberg's gun control policy hailed as a proven crime prevention tool! Adios, Piedra!

Please, if you dont have time to write a good book please dont waste our time with an insultingly contrived book like this. Shame on you for taking your Stone Barrington fans for granted - we both deserve better.

Stuart must be getting hungry. I have never read a more contrived book. A junior associate with two years of experience in a major law firm demanding to become a Senior Associate. C'mon, and to fashion the purchase of an entire building for his first-ever client in a matter of days, and for a decorated NYC detective not to turn in an serial killer, and for the young attorney to be charged with the murder of the principal of his law firm. It stretches my imagination to the core. I have read many of Stuart Wood's book and at one time counted him as a favorite author, but with this drivel in his 270 page book, I must rethink any more purchases. His title is correct, "Unnatural Acts" is replete throughout the book. Save your money.

I feel this book has not risen to the standards of the better majority of Woods work. Events are contrived, characters are non dementional. Main theme or plot, is there one...it's all over the map. Reads to me like a book put together for a quick buck. I am a loyal Woods reader and fan, I was disappointed in this effort.

Of all the Stone Barrington novels this is one of the weakest. It is really a Herbie Fisher novel and from a long time Stuart Woods reader it is a huge stretch to see Herbie as sophisticated, highly successful, and a Stone Barrington look alike. After presenting Herbie as a bumbling, like able looser for all those books, its hard for a reader to accept this transformation.

I don't no which is worse, Woods taking money for this crap or the professionals (???) who wrote reviews taking their salary. I've read every Stuart Woods book because they were quick reads and you could fantasize a bit. My imagination refuses to work with me any longer. The only reason I have one star is you can't post w/o at least one.

As a long-time Woods reader, and fan, I have to say this was a huge disappointment. Wish I had saved my money. Woods' earlier works were suspenseful thrillers. Perhaps these later ones are paralleling his own professional success as a millionaire, with everyone making certain that the high rollers get all the perqs that will keep their accounts with the right banks, brokers, lawyers, etc. C'mon, this is not what I read Woods for.

My girlfriend got me hooked on Stuart Woods when I read the first Orchid Beach book. Then I starting reading the Stone Barrington books and have read many (23 so far) - enjoying them all until this one. I found this one slow and boring. I hope the rest of them get back to what I enjoyed of the first 22.

SPOILER ALERT for those who have not read book 21 Son of Stone and book 23 Unnatural acts, in book 21 it describes how stone's wife dies and also how the man who killed her was killed , but in book 23 stone mentions he escaped somewhere south of the border, did the writer forget that he killed off the man who killed stones wife

For those who have criticized this book...I wonder what they were expecting? This is Stuart Woods way of writing. I found the story moving along the way his other stories have. I thought it was realistic and could easily happen in our lives...slightly off balanced kids who turn to violence and attempted murder. Rather chilling. I found the whole story interesting from Stone & Dino trying to find a new restaurant to replace Elaine's to Herbie's growth. To those who haven't read his books Elaine's was kind of the foundation to the storylines. I highly recommend this book.

'Sup. So I was just chillin'...wif mah doritos...and mah j<3>ugs...and I saw an add that said "Chicken for sale". So I clicked on it and joined this fancy roleplay!<br><br>When I uno uno seis...when I uno uno seis...when I uno uno seis...please don' get up (and yes, I left the T out on purpose) in mah way. HOMIE, ONE-ONE-SIX, WE SAFE. HOMIE, ONE-ONE-SIX, WE SAFE.<br><br>Mah name is Asylum, I am... *he counts on his hands.* ...five. Wait, no... O.e Sixteen. :D SEE?!?! *he proudly holds up two fingers.*<br><br>I POP UP, BEATER, ALL ABOUT THE BLOOD AND BODY, FRESH-EATERS... USED TO BE THE WALKIN' DEAD, BUT DAT SEASON END...AND NOW PARTNEH I'MMA BELIEVEH, RAH!<br><br>I am an organic anomaly...literally... CLICKED UP, HE AIN'T TRYIN'-A-BE FAMOUS...PEOPLE FORGET, THAT I KNOW JUST WHAT THE AIM IS...DANGEROUS...WHAT CHU GONNA SAY, THAT'S A MAN THAT'S BEEN CHAAAAAANGED...WHO KNOW DAT TO DIE IS TO GAIIIIIIIN...YAH! YOU KNOW WHAT IT'S LIKE, YOU KNOW WHAT IT'S LIKE...GETTIN' READY FOR THE MOMENT, GETTIN' READY FOR THE NIGHT...<br><br>I generate a "Critical Mass" (I typed ass at first.), an organic substance with no specific definition or relation to any other organic or biological material known. :3 I can honestly say I don't know if :3 is someone sticking out their tongue or covering their mouth.<br>It can come in many forms, okay, okay, just gaseous and solid. The gaseous I vent from my pores to fly, the solid I can generate from my body or thin air. Either type requires me to lose blood, and if I run out of a certain amount of blood, I go x.x. I usually project it in tendrils, to use to move things, trap people, or manipulate matter by narrowing Critical Mass tendrils down into monomolecular lines and controlling the electric charges (of the Critical Mass, mind you.) within them to further move matter. I can regenerate in small amounts from wounds, and use the Mass to form constructs, such as transforming my arms in weapons or shields or coating myself in it for armor. If this roleplay fights realistically, it's going to be heaven for me, since I am something of a superpower fanatic. o.e IT TAKES A MOMENT TO MAAAKE MEMORIIIIIES, A LIFETIME TOOOOO FORGET 'EM, FORGET 'EM, FORGET 'EM...CURIOUS...DAT'S WAH AH'M...STILL CURIOUS...<br><br>My personality? Pssh. Take a gandah at mah name. There's a reason.<br><br>My looks? I am above good looks. Black spiky hair...tan skin...oh yeah. :D<br><br>My status? *he gasps.* I am singletacular...but by the way people spell on this rp, I'll probably remain that way.<br><br>Mah music? RED and Andy Mineo...MAN, I'M SO BACK-AND-FORTH, LIKE A TUG-OF-WAAAAAAAR, YEAAAAAAAH.<br><br>Reader, do you mind if I straddle you?
