Stuart Woods is a wonderful author for crime-novel fans. This book features Stone Barrington (an ongoing character--former cop turned investigator) called on to investigate a Hollywood murder involving a former girlfriend. Very fun, quick read.

L.A. DEAD by Stuart Woods: Stone Barrington is about to marry the beautiful (but seriously crazy) daughter of a high-ranking Mafioso, whose other daughter happens to be married to Stone's best friend--an NYPD cop -- when Stone is called to L.A., where his former lover has just discovered her husband's dead body. The lover is Arrington, the dead husband is a famous movie star, and everyone except Stone, who's still in love with her, thinks she killed him. Stone manages to save the damsel in distress, get rid of his nutty near-wife without offending her father, and wrap up all the details except the most important one whether he will make the woman of his dreams Arrington Barrington? Stay tuned.

A nerve-racking thriller featuring one of the author's most popular characters - cop turned lawyer and investigator Stone Barrington. This is a scintillating tale of romance and murder that stretches from the Grand Canal of Venice to the mansions of Bel-Air, with a cast of characters who display the best and worst of the Hollywood milieu.

Stuart Woods hit the ground running years ago with "Chiefs" and has been producing entertaining well-written books ever since; I have read everything he has written up to and including "L A Dead" and this is the first of his books I have been truly disappointed in. I note in the acknowledgements that he has a new editor and publisher and wonder if they advised him that his books needed more sex to increase his sales because this one has it to the extreme. What small plot and mystery the book might have had is buried in never-ending sexual encounters. Stone Barrington, the protagonist, must be the most sexually atractive man alive since every female in the book (except his best friend's wife) immediately hops into bed with him. The sex scenes aren't particulairly graphic, but there are just so many of them it's comical.
The book is more very soft porn than mystery or legal thriller. Unfortunately, if I like an author, I usually buy everything he writes at the used book store and read them in the order published. Since this book was copyrighted in 2000, I probably have another 8 or 9 years of this to plow through. Sigh...
