Publisher's Summary

Stone Barrington takes on a client who gives him a run for his money in the newest heart-stopping thriller from the New York Times best-selling author.

Fresh off the runway at Teterboro, Stone Barrington arrives home to find an unexpected new client on his doorstep, anxiously soliciting his help. But everything is not as it seems when the client reveals the true nature - and value - of his recent turn of fortune.

    Story
    "The Stone Barrington series should end"
    Would you try another book from Stuart Woods and/or Tony Roberts?

    I have listened to other Stuart Woods books narrated by Tony Roberts and have been impressed with past books and the other series.


    Has Sex, Lies & Serious Money turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I have read or listened to every Stone Barrington book, as he was previously one of my favorite characters up until the last few years. It seems as if Stuart Woods is now simply writing books in order to meet his deadlines. This series has been absolutely horrible for a couple of years now, while this last book will also be the last one I download. Each book is now nothing more than a test to see how much money each wealthy character can unrealistically spend. There is no real depth or intriguing storylines within these books anymore. The first 2-3 hours of this book were useless and mind numbing.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Tony Roberts?

    I think Tony Roberts does a great job with his narrations. It is too bad storyline is horrific, as there is only so much Mr. Roberts can do with the material.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    This booked sparked anger and disappointment because I remember when the Stone Barrington series was exciting. Apparently the primary storyline for this series is now how to spend millions and millions of dollars at a moment's notice. Until I hear a future book is the last in this series, I can't waste my time listening to any future Stone Barrington books. Such a sad decline of a once great series.

    Story
    "No real plot, just excuse for sex and shopping"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    This is just rich people indulging themselves in sex and spending gross amounts of money. Very thin plot and just when you think it might get interesting, the book suddenly ends. I do not recommend this book.


    Did Tony Roberts do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Yes, but Dino's nouveau is grating and irritating.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Sex, Lies & Serious Money?

    The entire book could be deleted.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a ridiculous book.

    Story
    "Short and Sour"

    Stone Barrington was a character on the periphery. New character Lawrence Hayworth not that interesting. As in many of Stuart Woods' too short novels, not much depth to plot or characters. Did he write this in an hour? Ending abrupt and unfinished. Too many of the books in this series subpar despite great characters.

    Story
    "Disappointing"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Woods has become complacent. This is the second time I have been disappointed in a Stone Barrington book.


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

    It would have been nice if there had been a decent story line.


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

    His reading is fine as always. He didn't have much to work with.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Sex, Lies & Serious Money?

    Almost the entire first 2/3rds of the book


    Any additional comments?

    A terrible waste of a good character

    "The plot doesn't seem finished."

    This story is meandering and leaves a lot of open pieces. It's like the author just decided to stop writing. Nothing really ends.

    "BORING"
    What would have made Sex, Lies & Serious Money better?

    First let me say I love Tony Roberts narration!! I actually purchased a credit to listen to this book and it's a pointless boring book. Ok ok we get it ..everyone's rich ..dreams come true in an instant..money is no object..blah blah blah..but where's the story???


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

    Probably not written this one at all!


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

    I love his voice..he is just a great narrator. He brings the words to life.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Anger and disappointment that I spent the extra money! I had to go on a long car trip and was looking forward to listening to a good book!! Got stuck driving with this clunker..and needless to say..one cannot change the selection while driving!


    Any additional comments?

    I used to love Stuart Woods books..good mix of fantasy wealth and mystery. Now it seems all about excess and privileged people and boring boring stories about one purchase after another and how Stone always knows everything ..I miss the good mysteries!

    "Everyone dreams of hitting it big in the lottery"
    Any additional comments?

    I'm curious as to whether this character will have a recurring appearance in the Stone Barrington novels. Possibly his own spin-off? They have combined Holly Barker of the Orchid series, Will Lee started in his own series. So did Ed Eagle. Now it seems Woods only does Stone Barrington novels. Don't get me wrong, even though Woods seems to be a die-hard democrat, ideologically, I'd have zero issues fitting into Barrington's world! This new character with over a half billion dollars is definitely an asset I can see Woods utilizing in future stories.

    "Same old"

    We started reading/listening to the Barrington stories but I now find they have really become same old same old. Nice voice and you really don't need to pay too much attention and the results are the same.
