Publisher's Summary

Stone Barrington finds intrigue abroad in the sensational new thriller by the New York Times best-selling author.

Stone Barrington is no stranger to schemes and deceptions of all stripes - as an attorney for the premier white-shoe law firm Woodman & Weld, he’s seen more than his share. But when he travels to Europe under highly unusual circumstances, Stone finds himself at the center of a mystery that is, even by his standards, most peculiar. Two unexpected invitations may be the first clues in an intricate puzzle Stone must unravel to learn the truth...a puzzle that will lead him deep into the rarefied world of European ultrawealth and privilege, where billionaires rub elbows with spooks, insider knowledge is traded at a high premium, and murder is never too high a price to pay for a desired end. It soon becomes clear that beneath the bright lights of Europe lurks a shadowy underworld...and its only rule is deadly ambition.

    Story
    "I love all things Stone ....but"
    What made the experience of listening to Unintended Consequences the most enjoyable?

    Tony Roberts makes this series. He is the voice of Stone and everyone else.


    Would you recommend Unintended Consequences to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yes I would recommend this to a friend. As usual, this is a light read/listen. I usually listen to this series of books while I sew..


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

    He is fabulous in his narration. The characters each have their own personality that you instantly recognize as soon as you hear them "talk". Mr. Roberts is Stone.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, this series of books is very light and is not something that keeps you on the edge of your seat.


    Any additional comments?

    I love this series of books, they are easy to listen and characters are great. What made the listening less than a five star review was I got the feeling that the story was written as the author was writing the story. There was thing that popped up, seemed important, and was dropped shortly afterwards with no explanation of why it was included and why it was dropped. That bothered me a great deal.

    "Stone being Stone"

    Lovers of Stone will be happy, I was. Kind of the usual stuff for stone, just as expected. Not much Dino in this book. Stone under threat from and chasing women around Europe.
    I think the reader is perfect for this series and think it's great he has been the reader for all the books.

    "More plugs for Stuart Woods' favorite restaurants"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Probably not. The usual chase without much plot. Bad guys are like Wile E. Coyote - always getting hit on the head with the Acme anvil


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    NO

    Story
    "Not His Best Work"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The book reads as if different people wrote different parts and the parts were put together. Many of the vinettes could be removed and the story wouldn't miss it.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Stuart Woods again?

    Yes but the next book had better not be as mundane.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    At times, Tony Roberts mixed his voices up. Stone and Dino were the only characters whose voices remained the same through out the book.

    "Tony Roberts IS all the characters to perfection!"
    What did you love best about Unintended Consequences?

    I really love Tony Roberts' reading of all Stuart Woods books. The books themselves are amusing, but Roberts reading is fabulous!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Dino because Roberts makes him so real!


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

    Love all the Woods books by Roberts and this is great as they all are.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No because I like to make the fun last!

    "Story below fair, but the narration was great."
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I wish the story was better.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I'll switch to another writer before coming back to Woods.


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

    Mr. Roberts is always great. Love the narration, you could listen to him read the phone book.


    Did Unintended Consequences inspire you to do anything?

    Yea, question my loyalty to Woods.

    Story
    "Sophisticated sci-fi"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I seem to remember liking Stuart Woods. I guess I am getting tired of everyone surviving one impossible situation after another.


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

    Some sort of a realistic ending


    What three words best describe Tony Roberts’s performance?

    Very good.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Unintended Consequences?

    Most of the ending.


    Any additional comments?

    I am not a writer and I am sure he knows much better than I and I am sure he has an audience that dies for his style. Don't know if I will try another. Hmmm. Wonder how many of his I have already listened to?

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I always enjoy the Stone Barrington stories.


    If you’ve listened to books by Stuart Woods before, how does this one compare?

    This one was "just OK," not the best in the series but still readable. Good escape reading.


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

    I think Tony Roberts is the voice of Stone Barrington, I can't imagine the audible series without him.

    "Not One of Stuart Woods Best"
    Would you try another book from Stuart Woods and/or Tony Roberts?

    Yes ... I would read another Stuart Woods book based on past performance. Not this book.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Stuart Woods again?

    This book hasn't increased my nterest. If this was the first book I read of Stuart Woods ... I wouldn't read another one.


    What about Tony Roberts’s performance did you like?

    It seems like Stuart Woods was just trying to put out another book. This definitely was not one of his best works. I was very very disappointed.

    Audible started me reading fiction again. What a treat to have professional actors narrating a book I may not have had the time to "read".

    "Story fair not great. Tony Roberts was terrific."

    The story was all over the map. Not enough DINO! Not enough about New York and their favorite hangouts. Too many things going on all at once. Stone is getting a little long in the tooth to be flitting from women to women. Settle down already! However I'll be waiting for the next chapter in the Stone Barrington series. I'm hooked on Stone and Tony Roberts.
