Publisher's Summary

On the heels of his best-selling Choke and Imperfect Strangers, Stuart Woods brings back one of his best loved characters, Stone Barrington, who most recently appears in New York Dead, in a fast-paced roller-coaster ride through the high-profile world of celebrity gossip.

Feared and disliked for both her poison pen and her ice queen persona, bicoastal gossip columnist Amanda Dart finds the tables have turned. The unwitting victim of an anonymous gossipmonger who is faxing to national opinion makers an outrageous scandal sheet revealing the details of her ongoing indiscretions with a nationally known takeover artist, Amanda enlists the help of New York lawyer and investigator Stone Barrington to learn the identity of the faxer.

Everybody is a suspect in the world of tabloid journalism. As the faxes grow more scathing and begin to expose the peccadilloes of not only Amanda but other members of the gossip community, Barrington winds up with more leads than he can handle and an employer who is about to take matters dangerously into her own hands. The world of gossip is turned on its head. It becomes clear to Stone that even the most respected members of the social scene will stop at nothing - even murder - to clear their names.

Irresistible as only good gossip can be, Dirt is a mesmerizing tale of betrayal and murder set against a backdrop of the fast-paced Manhattan tabloid business; it is filled with the twists and turns that have made Stuart Woods' novels international hits.

Another Smash Hit

Stuart Woods is an amazing writer and Tony Robert's does an excellent job of bringing Stone to life. On to my next Woods download!

Super fun listen, a little too dirty though.

Although I love these books by Stuart Woods I don’t understand why Stone must sleep with every woman in the story. Nonetheless this was a great book and entertaining, I loved the ending.

Awful ending.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Left you handing, unfinished business, unless this is a series the loose ends needed to be completed.

Great

Another GREAT Stone Barrington! If it weren't for the mid '90 references to pay phones and and land lines, this book would be ageless.

Different narrator-- he gets one star

I'm not a fan of narrator Farrone, (the first book), but Tony Roberts trying to deliver female lines is just grating and painful. I would take Farrone back in a minute if that's the only other choice. So far I've also heard his version of Dino's voice...awful. Why in the world did they decide to the rest of this series with him? I still haven't decided whether I like Stone Barrington or not. Tony Roberts' voice makes him even less appealing. He's bright, mostly ethical, but when it comes to women he is incredibly shallow. I am wondering if he stays like that through whole series, or if he grows at all. He goes from 38 to 42 yre from last book to this. At this rate he'll end the series in his 60's!

All sex, minimal story

Tony Roberts is obsessed with sex. His main character, a former cop turned lawyer/PI, spends more time in bed than doing any work. The story is sophomoric and unpolished. Not recommended.

Horrible narrator

I'm sorry now that I purchased 2 & 3 at the same time, because after hearing this narrator, It will be tough getting through the next e-book. Great story
