I love this series and once you've read up to this one, it's nice to know all the characters so well. Stone is a stud in them all but the amount of sex he had in this one was a bit much and overdone. Male author, what can you say? Living vicariously?

Not Stuart's best work. The plot was thin, the entire novel was filled with Stone's threesome's and other sexual exploits. Although I normally enjoy his noveles, this one was lacking.
The Stone Barrington series, once clever and interesting, has now become mundane and full of tepid sex scenes written obviously by a male author with no chemistry between participants. Woods thinks that by adding threesomes and girl on girl action that the plot becomes sexy and more interesting; sadly, this is not the case. The stories tend to be totally unmemorable, just like the titles.
If you like the Stuart Woods books, you will like this one. This is part of the Stone Barrington series that I like. As with all Stuart Woods books, they are an easy read and a real page turner.
Well aside from the copious amounts of sex Stone has in this book--the story was better than the last one in that there was a resolution. While it is not his best Barrington book, I do appreciate the real-ness of the characters--no one is truly evil or good. The various women in the plot were a bit tough to believe in their entirety but I do appreciate that they are strong women not just damsels in distress.
Good book! Typical Stone Barrington with many twists and turns. As usual Stone is surrounded by women and embroiled in conflict. I read the book in one sitting. Couldn't put it down. Wish every other man you met was a Stone Barrington!
