Stone Barrington and Holly Baker head to St. Marks in Stuart Woods' Shoot Him If He Runs. At the request of the President Will Lee and his wife CIA director Kate Rule Lee, they go to St. Marks to look for an ex CIA employee who they thought died in an earlier book.

I recommend that Stuart Woods' books be read in order. This is Stone's second trip to St. Marks, so you are reintroduced to people he already knows. It is a good book full of the usually murder, sex, and mystery that we all love Woods' book for.

In this book Stone Barrington, Will Lee and Holly Barker all participate as characters.

But it's really an awful book--with cheap situations and unnecessary sex scenes, of course with everyone suitably oversexed and eager at the drop of a hat, complete with nude beaches and tropical alcoholic concoctions and trite stereotypical banana republic jerks running the Carribean island being visited.

The worst part is the ho-hum chase for Teddy Fay, the techy ex-CIA arch-villain who just refuses to be caught, and who keeps somehow threatening the reputation of Will Lee, who is up for re-election. I think it's time to kill him Teddy off and either retire from writing this drivel or slow down on the publication schedule and come up with some original stories.

This author wrote CHIEFS--He is capable of way better than this.

Another great read featuring Stone Barrington and Holly Barker. Stone is usually very funny on his one but teamed up with Holly and it makes for a great read. I highly recommend this book. What's great about this series is you can read any book no need to start about the begining.

I've read the entire series, but wasn't very impressed with this one. Usually he has one big case plus a few loose ends to keep the story moving. This book had Stone on vacation, and aside from a little skinny dipping with Dino and the two women, nothing really happens. The case he was working on was pretty week, and I feel the bad guy character wasn't developed at all. I think Mr. Woods is just putting out books to forfill an obligation, not to interest his readers. It's a shame, because Stone and Dino are two of my all time favorite characters :(

Oh yea, I forgot, he obviously quit using the words disappear or vanished. Instead he uses another word incessantly. If you still read the book after my bad review, see if you can pick out the word I'm talking about. Doing so may just be the highlight of your reading!

I agree with the first review in this column, Stuart Wood books when he first started were great; now it's just to much sex and not enough story; enough that I don't even bother with his books anymore.

A very good and surprising book. I enjoyed some of the twists. The book has good character development; however, it would help the reader if they were familiar with some of the characters from previous "Stone Barrington" books. If not, you can still jump in and enjoy the book.

If the CIA, FBI, NYPD and all the other agencies involved in these series are as trite, incompetent, and totally surprised that a room may be bugged, I can only imagine that this may be a contributing factor to our internationally embarrassing intelligence web. The dialog is contrived, juvenile and so frustrating naive. There a just a few mildy "torrid" sex scenes that add nothing to the story line or plot. How can a supposed successful NY attorney (formerly NYPD Detective) a CIA agent (formerly Police Chief) and all the agencies that were intertwined continually stumble and stutter through a very predictable plotline. The only semi-interesting character was the supposed villan who is so smart he just has to keep assasinating those he feels are "bad people". You go Teddy, no wonder you were able to elude detection as long as these characters are on your trail.

Another solid Stone Barrington storyline in which he interacts with Holly Barker and his longtime friend Dino in the lovely setting of St. Marks island. Always a bit unrealistic as to his lifestyle, the plot is nonetheless engaging and intriguing. A former government employee thought to be dead many years has resurfaced....or has he? Stone and Holly are posing as a couple on a paradise vacation and need to ascertain if in fact he is dead or alive, with implications leading back to the US President. If you read all the Stone Barrington stories, you will enjoy catching up with characters from previous books.
