Publisher's Summary

In the newest addition to the New York Times-bestselling series, Stone Barrington comes face-to-face with a beautiful woman from his past....

Stone Barrington receives a rather unexpected phone call from Arrington Calder, the ex-girlfriend with whom he has a son. Arrington's much older husband, the actor Vance Calder, has just died, leaving her a fortune in Centurion Studios stock. Arrington has plans for the money and asks Stone to represent her in the sale of the company. But when he arrives at her home in Bel-Air to finalize the deal, things take a nasty turn. It seems many of Hollywood's rich and beautiful have Arrington and Centurion in their sights, and Stone finds himself dragged into a surprisingly deadly web of intrigue.

    "Another Great Stone Barrington Novel"

    I've always loved the Stone Barrington series and Bel Air Dead does not dissapoint. This is yet another great book in the series and listeners will enjoy catching up with old characters we have not heard from in a long time. Stuart Woods wrote on his website that he is required to pen quite a few books every year. I do not know if it is for this reason or intentional but the Stone Barrington books have been taking on a much faster pace of late which I really enjoy.

    While I won't give anything away here, there are some really interesting plot twists that I think will introduce some new and unique characters in the near future. If you decided not to listen to Bel Air Dead but you are a fan of Stone Barrington, I would suggest you read this one.

    The reader is very entertaining. Love the players.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Stone and Dino are the reason why I read this books


    Which character – as performed by Tony Roberts – was your favorite?

    Dino


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The comments that Dino makes just make me laugh. It is often at a traffic light and the others in traffic must think I'm crazy :-)

    "Lots of fun for Stone and Dino. Stone at his best."
    If you could sum up Bel-Air Dead in three words, what would they be?

    A fun read.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Bel-Air Dead?

    I enjoyed reading about LA. I think the pompous characters are hilarious.


    Any additional comments?

    Tony Roberts does a great job narrating. He's always consistent.

    "Fun summer enterainment"
    What made the experience of listening to Bel-Air Dead the most enjoyable?

    I enjoy the narrator very much. He does a great job delinetaing between the characters.


    If you’ve listened to books by Stuart Woods before, how does this one compare?

    This is a typical Stuart Woods storyline but it is entertaining with some twists.


    What about Tony Roberts’s performance did you like?

    Excellent! I have heard one other narrator and I was very disappointed. Mr. Roberts' makes the story come alive!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    No idea.


    Any additional comments?

    No.

    "Classic Stuart Woods"

    This book follows the same formula as all of the other SW books i've read. If you're a SW fan, you'll like this book. It's nothing new. Comfortable and fun! loved it!
