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.

Publisher's Summary

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.

    Story
    "Boring"
    Would you try another book from Stuart Woods and/or Tony Roberts?

    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.


    What could Stuart Woods have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Action!


    What didn’t you like about Tony Roberts’s performance?

    Dialog was monotone, lack of enthusiasm and slowness. Maybe it was story but very lackluster.


    What character would you cut from Carnal Curiosity?

    All of them including Stone Barrington in this novel.

    Story
    "a real cut and paste job"
    Would you try another book from Stuart Woods and/or Tony Roberts?

    I would wait till others have rated it.


    What was most disappointing about Stuart Woods’s story?

    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,


    Would you be willing to try another one of Tony Roberts’s performances?

    Yes his performance is good.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Carnal Curiosity?

    The entire book is not worthy of the trash can.

    Story
    "Good and Typical (as of late) Stone Barrington Sto"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. The later (current) Stone Barrington Books are not too deep. A decent, albeit always unbelievable plot, leads to a quick and satisfying conclusion.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Carnal Curiosity?

    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.


    What does Tony Roberts bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    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.


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

    A lawyer, his loves, and trouble.

    Story
    "Felt like dad reading me a racy bedtime story."
    Would you try another book from Stuart Woods and/or Tony Roberts?

    Depends on the topic.


    What was most disappointing about Stuart Woods’s story?

    To be honest, I didn't get very far.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Tony Roberts?

    This sounds horrible, but someone younger. An older man narrating racy subject matter feels awkward and creepy.

    Story
    "Wasted a credit!"
    What disappointed you about Carnal Curiosity?

    There was too much nonsensical dialogue and the plot was minimal.


    What could Stuart Woods have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Write interesting mysteries instead of a written soap opera.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    None.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    Story
    "Stone never has a dull moment"
    What did you love best about Carnal Curiosity?

    The attitude of many of the characters that Mr Woods brought to life in the story


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    As usual Mr Woods throws in some twist and turns


    What does Tony Roberts bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    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.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I enjoyed all of it and too many to mention


    Any additional comments?

    Preordered the next one and look forward to reading it also
