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.

This book is one in a series of murder mysteries. You don't have to read the first one first. It's great fun no matter which order they're read. *New York Times bestseller. Hired to prove infidelity in an heiress's marriage, Sone Barington goes undercover. But the work turns dirty--and catastrophic--when the errant husband is found dead and the other woman disappears without a trace. Now Stone must clear his own good name and find a killer hiding among the glitterati of New York's high society. Enter Carpenter--the beautiful British intellegence agent first encountered in "The Short Forever"--who has arrived in New York to begin an investigation of her own. Stone suspects that her case is strangely connected to the dead husband. And he and Dino, his former NYPD partner, are set to face the most bizarre and challenging asssignment of their very colorful careers.

Classic Stone Barrington. Humorous with many twists

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!

Stone Barrington hits the streets of Manhattan in search of a dangerous woman-and the circumstances behind the death of a very rich husband.
Back in New York City cop-turned-lawyer Stone Barrington is assigned by his law firm, Woodman & Weld, to aid an important client in her quest to dump her unfaithful husband. Stone thinks the job is ordinary dirty work, but then things take a murderous turn, and the FBI and a foreign intelligence service become involved.
Easy read, very entertaining.

Robert Lawrence is one of the worse narrator's I have ever listened to. All the women sound like men, all the men sound the same, the accents are non-existent or just plain bad. It totally destroyed a good story. I would recommend bypassing the audio entirely and reading the book.

Cop-turned-lawyer Stone Barrington in a case that spans NY to FL and beyond. Ok story, a little too graphic for my taste.
