I can usually figure out a book or show in no time which usually makes the books less exciting but I cannot with the Barrington books. There are other series that are pretty good but right now I'm hooked.
And Buffalo George
Our hero, Stone Barrington, works a Hollywood murder while fending off his nutso Italian wife/not wife. Strangely, Stone, who jumps everything in skirts, is abstinent until about 2/3 of the way through the book. The plot(s) were interesting and Woods apparently has lived some of the life of the rich and famous so that he can write this. I was unaware that authors are so flush. Super easy and fast read/listen. The characters dovetail nicely and some even interact with other series that Woods has written. And, whodunit isn't revealed until the very last gasp. holding one in suspense until the very end.
Oh sure. He is very inconsistent but sometimes a good reader can save a mediocre story.
Absolutely not. He was the worst reader I have heard.
Loved the book! I was shocked to find out Arrington was accused of murder. The plot was excellent. I enjoyed the cast of characters. Surprised by the characters that died. Page turner to the end!
NO - the audio performance is terrible. The reader is different than the first few books and clearly hasn't listened to any of the previous performances. He changes the pronunciation of several of the characters names. The performance and “special effects” really detract from the story.
The plot was good -
Read the book! The special effects added when a call is placed or a televison report is being told is - abysmal.
This story was merely OK. I found that the author writes in a very simple style and perhaps could have benefitted from a thesaurus. If I never hear the words "he said" again, it will have been 100 times too many.
The narrator really did not feel the story and his pacing did not match the story.
It was a relatively short story, but I am not sure it is worth a credit. Wait for it to go on sale.
This is a very good book and I recommend it. It holds your attention and you will like this book.
