Heiresses, glitterati, high society, infidelity, intelligence agents, and reputations on the line - what's not to like?

Stone Barrington ("The Short Forever") is the lawyer hired to prove infidelity. The plans go awry when the husband is found dead and the wife disappears. He must then find the killer (this is where the glitterati comes in) and clear his own name.

This is a nice breezy read that is sure to keep your interest.

Stuart Woods is the type of author that either hits a grand slam or a ground out. There never seems to be an in-between. In my opinion his Stone Barrington series has become very shallow with repetitive plots. Oh for the good old days of "Santa Fe Rules", Orchard Beach and Chiefs.

Dirty Work is a Stone Barrington novel. Stone is a lawyer that is also an ex-cop. He becomes involved with a British Intelligence agent that is in New York on business--dirty business. Stone is hired to get pictures of a philandering husband and becomes involved in the same case as Felicity, the british agent. Stone and Dino, his ex-partner become embroiled in the most bizarre and challenging assignment of their colorful career.

This is my first novel by Stuart Woods but it won't be my last!
