Simply awful even by Mr. Woods current standards. The only saving grace is that Stone Barrington is to be back burnered in the next book.
Formulaic and simplistic. Stone meets beautiful woman, makes vigorous love to said woman, and chases ( or is being chased) by said woman's Russian ex-husband ( seriously?) in luxury ( of course). I kept skipping pages of this short book. It must have taken five minutes to come up with this tired story line.
First 1/2-2/3s nothing new and boring. Got only slightly better after that. Glad I read thru library app and didn't spend money for it. Usually a stone barrington fan and have enjoyed other series by Mr Woods.
Only really readable until last 1/2 -1/3 of book. Glad I read thru my library app. and didn't spend money for it. Usually I'm a stone barrington fan and have enjoyed other Woods books.
A another well written,over priced, short story by Mr Woods. At least he ends this book with the words "To be continued". Rather than buying this as an e-book, spend an extra .75 cents at Costco and buy it in hard back. Then you can donate it to a library so others can read it for free, and you get a tax deduction.
