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.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I especialy liked the characters and the plot. The book kept my interest until the end.
Stone Barrington researches the disappearance of anchorwoman Sasha Nijinsky. Great read-action packed. I loved it.
