    "As always with Woods, it's more the journey"

    I've read, or listened to, most of the Stone Barrington books, and I enjoy them simply because I love the characters. The plots are usually quite simplistic, sometimes the conclusions seem abrupt or illogical, and the world in which the characters live is amazingly small (everyone knows everyone else, usually via some law enforcement or federal agency connection). But the characters are so endearing that I'm quite content to just let them do their thing, chatting away, as I look on, not really caring where the latest "case" takes them. I do read more serious detective ficton, such John Sanford's, but there's a time for everything, and Woods is the guy I turn to when I want to relax and just have some fun with Stone, Dino, and the gang.

    "Typical S Barrington fun read!"

    Nothing new here, just alot of fun with Stone, Arington, Holly, Dino and Lance! Enjoyable, summer fun type reading. Nothing mind blowing but comfortable, like visiting with old friends.

    Story
    "one of the better n the series"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    yes, there are twists and turns that keep the reader interested. The ending left me a little let down. This is one of the earlier in the series and the overall story seems fresh.


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

    Mr. Roberts is a very lively narrator. His many voices seem true to life and add interest

    "Awful! One of my worst Audible downloads."
    What disappointed you about Dark Harbor?

    No character development. Loose ends. No suspense or solid plot development.


    Has Dark Harbor turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Usually enjoy suspense-mystery but not this one.


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

    He didn't have much to work with.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Dark Harbor?

    Why did Caleb kidnap Holly? Made no sense.

    "Typical Stuart Woods & Stone Barrington but better"

    Actually a better than usual Barrington plot. Quite entertaining, good plot though bad guys suspected kind of early in book, and, as usual, Tonly Roberts IS Stone. Love the Stone seies more than Woods other ones, tough they're also entertaining, not quite as envelope pushing though.

    "Pass on this book"

    This was not my favorite Stuart Woods novel. Although he brought together many favorite characters from past novels, the dialog was too predictable and unrealistic. I've listened to 100's of books and this narrator was the worst I've suffered through.

    "Fizzled at the end"

    This book was overall a pretty good book. This is my first title by this author. I was disappointed with the ending. I have become a fan of the James Patterson type endings; the type that ends with a bang. This mystery/thriller lacked both mystery and the thrill at the end. Again, it was still a good book and I would listen to it again.

    "Simplistic"

    After reading many Nelson DeMille, Michael Connelly and Vince Flynn novels, this story line was predictable, lacked intrigue and suspense. The narrator was the worst I have heard in over 60 audio books.
