You have to meet Stone Barrington if you haven't before - he's a great character. Totally self absorbed, great intuitive leaps that often land him in the middle of murder and mayhem. There's enough humor in the book to keep you going from page to page.
Fans of Woods's ex-cop turned lawyer, Stone Barrington, will not be disappointed in this latest entry in the series. This time out, Stone becomes involved with a loud-talking Texan improbably named Billy Bob Barnstormer. It isn't long before Stone regrets ever being introduced to Billy Bob, especially when he leaves a dead body in Stone's guest room. But that is only the beginning of a tale that finds Stone, along with his best friend, Dino Bacchetti, following a twisted trail as they attempt to capture Billy Bob, who, it turns out, is much more dangerous than Stone could ever have imagined.
Currently 4/5 Stars.
Iris L. (silamb) reviewed Two-Dollar Bill (Stone Barrington, Bk 11) on
Just recently started reading Stuart Woods and enjoyed this book very much.
I was not impressed with this book. The storyline just went along, nothing real exciting or out of the ordinary. Just when the drama began to build, it seemed like the bottom must have fell out of Mr. Woods thoughts, because it was hum-drum.
If you are looking for a book to read, this one is fine. If you are looking for lots of excitement and a great storyline, this isn't the one for you.
I hadn't read Stuart Woods before. I'm convinced. Has all the story telling twists and whip-smart banter one could ask for. The Manhattan cop turned suave lawyer chasing down a briliant southern flim-flam man. The characters are well developed and not typical stock! So Billy-Bob, a filthy rich smooth talkin Texan, enters the picture and what develops is just great.
"Two Dollar Bill delivers all the storytelling twists and whip-smart banter readers have come to love in Stuart Woods' thrillers. In this latest, Stone Barrington, the suave Manhattan cop turned lawyer, is back on his home turf, facing down a brilliant southern flimflam man."
The newest Stone Barrington novel. He's back on his home turf with the usual crime, sex and action. A new client leads to a roller coaster ride for Stone, Dino, Lance and a few new friends. Oh yeah....Arrington returns and Stone finds out a long awaited secret.
