Stuart Woods is absolutely amazing in his productivity. How anyone turns out novels as frequently as he does is astounding. Not shoddy pieces of junk but engaging pieces of light entertainment.
Stone Barrington must track down an enemy intent on disturbing law and order in the latest action-packed thriller from the #1 New York Times bestselling author
Upon returning from a dangerous coastal adventure, Stone Barrington is looking forward to some normalcy with the leading lady in his life. But when a grisly crime arrives on his doorstep, along with some suspicious new clients eager for his help, Stone realizes peace and quiet are no longer an option.
As it turns out, the mastermind behind the malfeasance rocking New York City and the nation’s capital wields a heavy hand of influence. And when Stone is unable to recruit those closest to the case to his side, he is left with few leads and a handful of dead-ends. But with the help of important people in high places–and the expertise of alluring new friends–Stone is more than ready to rise to the occasion.
This is generic pulp. But it is like reading adult comic books. Terrific dialogues, a fair to midlin plotline, enough soft eroticism to titillate the moribund, Woods serves it all up on a platter that is a fun way to pass a rainy afternoon.
As I use an electronic device to read his books, I discovered a fun thing to do while reading is light fluff…to google the restaurants he patronizes in his books, likely in real life too, but curiously more and more of them are closing down. No suggestion implied but it is fun to read the menus and see the photos and know he’s earning loads of money from the craft at which he excels and many, many others struggle. Bravo Woods, steer your yacht, fly your planes, dine at the finest restaurants…I am sure it did not come overnight. Enjoy the fruits of your efforts in the closing chapters of your own life. Stay healthy and stay safe.
