The story was too far fetched to be believed, even in a city full of the totally absurd. The DC police department is NOT the DCPD it's MPD...stupid, yes, but factual! And J.Pauls is in Georgetown, NOT Foggy Bottom.
These small details lost it for me. I stopped believing the characters and the story was just too silly and forced.
The narrator was great though.
David Baldacci's "Simple Truth"
Bringing Stone and Dino's children into the story. Served no purpose.
great great great!
Stone's At It Again!
We have really enjoyed listening to all of Stuart Woods books, especially Stone Barrington books. Please ask Stuart to keep all books and characters coming!
Tony Roberts is a great narrator
Not necessaryily but love the author
His inflections make it come alove
Hummmm could Herbie be the new Stone and could Dink be the new Herbie, not done with the listen but seems that way
No, I don't usually listen or read books more than once
I enjoyed the relationships of the characters, there really wasn't one memorable moment.
He is great to listen to. I listen in my car and a monotone would just put me to sleep. He keeps me engaged without be distracting.
Terrible plot. Two "super" detectives are brought in to solve a crime, however, their main concern is who they are sleeping with each night with no real interest in solving the crime. Their major investment on the actual solving of the crime is making up scenarios that would pass as pausible so that they can go back to their hometowns. This was the worst book I've listened to (read) in many years.
A huge disappointment. I used to like Stuart Woods but will now most certainly avoid him.
Don't waste a credit.
If you enjoy the Stone Barrington series, it is worth a listen. The usual assortment of characters - Dino, Holly Barker, Teddy Fay, Joan Roberts- are here, although some regulars are not featured as much since the story takes place in Washington DC vs NYC.
Overall, I'd say the plot and villian were predictable- you'll probably guess who the serial
More depth to the plot. It's obvious who the killer is about halfway through the book.
I always enjoy Roberts's narration of the Barrington series. He is the best.
Lack of consistant plot
Forget about his perfect, brillant son.
He's gotten a little too carried away with Stone Barrington.
