This is the first in the Stone Barrington series and was published in 1991. I had read the third book in the series, Dirt, after finding it abandoned somewhere while I was traveling. I liked it so much that I requested the entire Stone Barrington series through paperbackswap.com. New York Dead wasn't as good as Dirt in my opinion, but it was still a very good, light read. I like starting a series from the beginning so that I get to know all the recurring characters. If I had read this book before Dirt, I would still have been intrigued to get the whole set. These books are just light enough, as well, to read in-between the heavy duty historical non-fiction that I enjoy so much.

It took me about 100 pages or so to get into this story and these characters. But after I did it was really a great story. My first Stuart Woods book but definitely not my last. I look forward to the next Stone Barrington book.

In this book he gets 'retired' due an injury to his knee from the force. Now he goes into his second career as a New York lawyer. I really enjoy the series by author Stuart Woods.

Suspenseful and surprising says the Atlanta Constitution. They were right. I like Stuart Woods and this book just made me want to read more.
Everyone is always telling Stone Barrington that he's too smart to be a cop, but it's pure luck that places him on the streets in the dead of night, just in time to witness the horrifying incident that turns his life inside out. he is on the front page of every New York newspaper, and his life is hopelessly entwined in the increasingly shocking life (and perhaps death) of Sasha Nijinsky, the country's hottest and most beautiful television anchorwoman.
No matter where he turns, the case is waiting for him, haunting his nights and turning his days into a living hell. Stone finds himself caught in a perilous web of unspeakable crimes, dangerous friends, and sexual depravity that has throughout it one common thread: Sasha.

From Publishers Weekly: "Woods's latest is a slick thriller set in Manhattan's Upper East Side, the stomping ground of Stone Barrington, a well-bred but unpretentious detective who, in a city of several million people, always ends up in the right place at the right time. Late one evening, as Stone trudges home from Elaine's Restaurant, popular TV newscaster Sasha Nijinsky plummets 12 stories from her terrace and lands on a heap of dirt 20 yards away from him--remarkably, still alive. Stone fails to apprehend the person who flees Sasha's penthouse and, after the ambulance carrying her collides with a fire truck, Sasha herself disappears. Despite the fact that no corpse is in evidence, the baffled NYPD eagerly pins a murder rap on Sasha's distraught lesbian lover. Stone refuses to accept his colleagues' pat solution and even maintains that Sasha might have survived thanks to skydiving training and her billowing, parachute-like robe. Bed-hopping TV newspeople, a sexy blonde judge sporting a red dress beneath her robes, a serial killer targeting cabbies and a creepy med-school dropout turned mortician who idolizes Sasha romp through this calculatedly melodramatic crime story all the way to its grisly B-movie finale." Copyright 1991 Reed Business Information, Inc.

From Library Journal: "The first of the author's novels to feature police detective Stone Barrington, this 1991 thriller finds him in the wrong place at the wrong time and witnessing an accident that turns his life inside out. His investigation leads into some serious weirdness of both the criminal and sexual kind." Copyright 2001 Reed Business Information, Inc. -
