Stone Barrington is back in the extraordinary new adventure from New York Times best-selling author Stuart Woods.
Stone Barrington seems to have a knack for being in the wrong place at the wrong time. When Manhattan’s elite are beset by a series of clever crimes - and Stone is a material witness - he and his former partner Dino Bacchetti find themselves drawn into the world of high-end security and fraud, where insider knowledge and access are limited to a privileged few, and the wealthy are made vulnerable by the very systems meant to keep them safe. As Stone and Dino delve deeper into their investigation, they learn that the mastermind behind the incidents may have some intimate ties to Stone...and that the biggest heist is still to come.

I normally like books by Stuart Woods, but this is the most pretentious fluff I have ever heard. Narrator reads so slowly, I felt like fast-forwarding. It was so dull.
Dialog was monotone, lack of enthusiasm and slowness. Maybe it was story but very lackluster.
All of them including Stone Barrington in this novel.
A fresh compelling storyline, some new and interesting characters...
The simplistic and superficial relationships.
After listening to most of them, I've had enough.
The writing and story line were boring banal hustler like droning on and on
It was the material or lack there of.
I would wait till others have rated it.
It is extremely dull not at all like so many of the excellent Stuart Woods Stories of Stone Barrington. It appears as if he collected a bunch of rejected story lines and pasted them together,
Yes his performance is good.
The entire book is not worthy of the trash can.
Yes. The later (current) Stone Barrington Books are not too deep. A decent, albeit always unbelievable plot, leads to a quick and satisfying conclusion.
My memory of this book, is actually my only negative comment. Tony Roberts' choice of the voice for the Detective "Dino" - sounds like a drunk Jackie Gleason. The voice does not match my imagining of the character.
Mr. Roberts, with one exception, brings good, and mostly slight, vocal intonations to each character...so that (except for the character of "Dino") no one sounds too much like a cartoon.
A lawyer, his loves, and trouble.
Depends on the topic.
To be honest, I didn't get very far.
This sounds horrible, but someone younger. An older man narrating racy subject matter feels awkward and creepy.
There was too much nonsensical dialogue and the plot was minimal.
Write interesting mysteries instead of a written soap opera.
Will not purchase any future Stone Barrington books. Stuart Woods has lost me.
Waste of time and credit. Woods just threw this together, no suspense, no plot, stupid ending.
Yes I prefer audio to print
Stone is the best
When Dino came to the rescue
Love stone and Dino
The attitude of many of the characters that Mr Woods brought to life in the story
As usual Mr Woods throws in some twist and turns
Without a doubt Mr Roberts is a master of his craft, I can't think of a higher compliment to give him, A true professional who takes the time to each character to life.
I enjoyed all of it and too many to mention
Preordered the next one and look forward to reading it also
