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.

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.

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.

Top 5

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

1st time to listen to Tony Roberts - thinks he does a very good job with all parts.

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.

Dirt

When people live in glass houses it is hard to keep your dirt from being seen. The unseen world of scandle mags tossed together with a little bit of mobsters make this book zip along nicely.

an ok drama

by comparison to later versions of Stone Barrington, this is average. i suppose this is the bias from reading backwards. having read the latest releases and hooked on, am simply trying to cover the series. So, this in no way changes my preference or ranking of the Barrington Series.
