    Stone Barrington is lured from Elaine's to New England and the genteel but cutthroat world of priceless antiques, historic homes, and lavish country estates. In a place dominated by bluebloods and their inherited wealth, along with the nouveau riche, there are surprisingly few rules of engagement, and Stone finds himself navigating a dangerous course, one where even the most expensive and sought-after status symbols are sometimes stolen and sometimes clever fakes, though no less priceless.

    W. French says: "Excellent"

    What did you like best about this story?

    Descriptors, language used, dialogue, everything was great!


    Have you listened to any of Tony Roberts’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I enjoyed it immensely. He gets into character and can be captivating. Always a pleasure to hear him.


    Any additional comments?

    Been out of Audible for a while and away from one of my all time favorite authors. This book is what I needed to get back into the swing of things! BRAVO to the team making this adventure!

  • AWOL on the Appalachian Trail

    In 2003, software engineer David Miller left his job, family, and friends to hike 2,172 miles of the Appalachian Trail. AWOL on the Appalachian Trail is Miller’s account of this thru-hike from Georgia to Maine. Listeners are treated to rich descriptions of the Appalachian Mountains, the isolation and reverie, the inspiration that fueled his quest, and the rewards of taking a less conventional path through life. While this book abounds with introspection and perseverance, it also provides useful passages about hiking gear and planning.

    Story

    What an enjoyable read! Of course it's one man's opinion, but an honest one with great details of trials, tribulations and triumphs. My only regret is that I wasn't there sharing the experience with him.

    Coming on the heels of his bestselling Choke and Imperfect Strangers, Stuart Woods brings back one of his best loved characters, Stone Barrington, who most recently appears in New York Dead, in a fast paced, rollercoaster ride through the high-profile world of celebrity gossip.

    Stone Barrington is back in New York, and after a rather harrowing sojourn in Key West, he's looking to stay closer to home and work on some simple divorce and custody cases for Woodman & Weld. But when he crosses paths with a fetching Broadway actress-and sometime lip model- Stone gets a little more deeply involved with business than he'd expected. When his new lady love turns out to be a lady with a shady past, Stone and downtown cop Dino Bacchetti realize that her beauty may have an unusually high price.

    What made the experience of listening to Kisser the most enjoyable?

    I always enjoy Mr. Roberts reading performances


    Any additional comments?

    The story started strong and ended too rushed. There were some many more chapters that should have been added to make this good book GREAT. I thin they are trying for quantity instead of quality lately.

    Dumped by his glamorous Russian girlfriend during dinner at Elaine's, and running low on cash, Stone Barrington is having a bad week. So his luck seems to be improving when he's hired to locate the missing son of a very wealthy man - lucky because the job pays well, and because the son is hiding in the tropical paradise of Key West. But when Stone and his sometime running buddy Dino Bacchetti arrive in the sunny Keys, it appears that someone has been lying in wait.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    It's Stone Barrington! I love the series just not the biggest fan of this particular adventure. Just thought it was a thin story line with repetitive chapters.


    Has Loitering With Intent turned you off from other books in this genre?

    oh NO not at all still a fan!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Liked Key West and the beginning of the Adventure but it seemed rushed to wrap it up.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    probably not


    Any additional comments?

    I grew tired of the same conversations on the phone, it just seemed repetitive with not enough explanation for some scenes.
