Publisher's Summary

A brand-new Stone Barrington novel from the perennially entertaining New York Times best-selling author.

It seems like just another quiet night at Elaine's. Stone Barrington and his former cop partner, Dino, are enjoying some pasta when in walks former client and all around sad sack Herbie Fisher...with a briefcase containing $14 million in cash.

Herbie claims to have won the money on a lucky lotto ticket, but he also says he needs a lawyer-and after a single gunshot breaks the window above his head and sends diners scrambling, Stone and Dino suspect Herbie might need a bodyguard and a private investigator, too.

More mayhem? Listen to all of our Stone Barrington mysteries.

    "Series that has lost it's appeal"

    The narrator really does a poor job with Dino's and the English ladies voices. I enjoyed this series for a while but it has gotten old. The books are very short and the plots are not what they were. This is a case of an author milking his past success. Even at $9.95, I feel I wasted my money. I think I've cured myself of Stuart Woods.

    "To be continued..."

    I am a huge fan of the Stone Barrington novels and this one does not dissappoint. As with all the books in this series, there is always another novel with some repeat characters and interwoven story lines. My only reason for not giving this book 5 stars is because this is yet another in a whole series of books from the last year that seems to not end and require the purchase of a to-be-continued book.

    Tony Roberts does yet another bang up job in the narration and there are more storylines and characters in one book than normal. If you are a Herbie Fisher (sp?) fan, then you will get your fill in this book as he is crazy as ever and adds the comic relief to what could be considered a darker Stone book than normal.

    "Good, but not his best"

    I'm a huge Stone Barrington fan, and I am always eagerly awaiting his next adventure, so naturally I snapped up Lucid Intervals right away. While I did enjoy the book, it's definitely not one of his best. The previous "Hot Mahogany" and "Kisser" were much better, but still a good listen.

    "save your cedits"

    I have listened to over 500 books and suffered thru some of them but I could not even finish this book, I thought I was buying a mystery/thriller not a cookbook.

    "Downhill"

    What is happening to Stuart Woods. Used to really enjoy his books but each new one has been less interesting than the one before. The plot is poor, Stone Barrington seems to only be interested in sex and he is not picky, any female will do. Please, Stuart Woods try to get back to writing exciting thrillers again! This book is so bad it is not worth listening to.

    I'm a dedicated reader/listener. My tastes are very eclectic, and there's not much I don't like except horror and dull history.

    "Done with Stone"
    What would have made Lucid Intervals better?

    Took me more than 5 weeks to finish this listen. Listened to 6 and read 4 or 5 during the same time. Reader was sooooo annoying! And Stone just gets more and more arrogant with each novel.


    What was most disappointing about Stuart Woods’s story?

    Plot. Sexual arrogance. Really obnoxious characters like Herbie and Felicity. Too many dinners with Dino.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Ditch the narrator.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Lucid Intervals?

    Too many to list.


    Any additional comments?

    Make Stone more likeable again. But I probably won't buy another Stuart Woods novel again.

    "What's not to like?"

    I can always be guaranteed hours of wonderful entertainment with any of the Stone Barrington novels. The novels may be a bit formulaeic, but who cares? The characters are great in themselves, and are made really special by the wonderful narration of Tony Roberts. I can't wait for the gravely New York voice of Dino Bachetti,-- the easy going tough as nails sidekick who never fails to save Stone from some local bad guy. My only concern is that I am running out of Stone Barrington novels.

    "Herbie Fisher - again!"

    Stuart Woods makes this character so annoying that sometimes your teeth hurt! I am as tired of him as Stone is but keep wondering what he comes up with next. We can't believe this person is so naive and stupid but Stone does put up with him - a million dollars worth.

    "Great listen!"

    Much better, Stuart! I enjoy the interesting and sometimes complicated life Stone leads. This was a much better read than 'Kisser'. Great job!

    "just blah"

    I'd like to think that it was mostly the reader, who made everyone sound ancient and annoying, that ruined this book, but it might just not have been one of Woods' best. The book was boring. And the reader just made it worse.
