In a place dominated by bluebloods and their inherited wealth, along with the nouveau riche, there are surprisingly fewrules of engagement, and Stone finds himself navigating a dangerous course, one where even the most expensive and sought-after status symbols are sometimes stolen and sometimes clever fakes, though no less priceless. With its swift action, bold characters, and wit as dry as th e best martini, Hot Mahogany is another must-read from th e pen of a master entertainer.
I've been a fan of Stone Barrington, the main character in this book, a long time. I've listened to about 6 of these books so far.
I've never written a review before but must after reading the review of the person who hated the book.
I really enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone. I thought it was one of the best of this series.

I'm a great fan of Stuart Woods and was very disappointed with this confusing and inept story.
It appeared as if a book were due and this one was it. a terrible effort. Save your money.

One of the Stone Barrington books of the 29I have listened. Good characters and a good story.

Well written enjoyable

What about Tony Roberts’s performance did you like?
One of the best narrators in the business
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
This story well written, flowed very well and had several twists and turns.
Any additional comments?
I would like to see the character Stone Barrington written in a more real persons persona where everything doesn't always seem to fall into his lap which gets all too predictable and tedious if you follow the series.
This is a good story, and the dialogue is good too. interesting historical facts. love the characters.
Tony. Roberts, as always is great.
What did you like best about this story?
Descriptors, language used, dialogue, everything was great!
Have you listened to any of Tony Roberts’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
I enjoyed it immensely. He gets into character and can be captivating. Always a pleasure to hear him.
Any additional comments?
Been out of Audible for a while and away from one of my all time favorite authors. This book is what I needed to get back into the swing of things! BRAVO to the team making this adventure!
I have been a fan of Stuart Woods, especially the Will Lee series but this book is terrible. It mixes both series, Will Lee and Stone Barrington, but to what purpose? I finally gave up when I became bored with and antagonized by the tawdry dialogue: Stone brings a woman who is his weekend guest to an old man's house. "Is she for me?" And, yes, he leaves her there like discarded luggage. Won't buy his titles until I know that his adolescent alter ego has been dispatched!
