Publisher's Summary

Stone Barrington is back in the exciting new adventure from perennial fan favorite Stuart Woods.

It's not often that Stone Barrington finds a woman as accustomed to the jet-set lifestyle as he, so he's pleasantly surprised when he meets a gorgeous pilot who's soon moving to New York and available for closer acquaintance. Their travels together lead them from Wichita to Europe, but trailing them is some unwanted baggage: his new lady love's unstable, criminal ex-boyfriend.

And while Stone is fending off his newest adversary, trouble is brewing on the international stage. Several enemy operatives are at large, and only a coordinated intelligence effort will have any chance of stopping their deadly plot. But the clock is ticking...and time has nearly run out.

Disappointing and boring.

Lots and lots of uninteresting detail about Stone's new plane. Who cares? He jumps in and out of bed with any and all available women as usual. At least he spared us the graphic details this time. Of course they all find him irresistible and they are all drop dead gorgeous. Not much of a story, more about what exotic locations he travels to and what culinary delights he enjoys in what famous restaurants. Save your credit.

Too coincidental

Boring, boring, boring. The only reason we finished the book was to see if something might happen. It didn't. What a waste of time.

Boring

What did you like best about Hot Pursuit? What did you like least?

Too much avionics. Have read all the Barrington books and this is the most boring.

not his best

I liked it, but maybe Woods,is getting a little too formulaic. And having the former president deliver the president's baby was truly unbelievable. It was way too hokey.

Fluff

What would have made Hot Pursuit better?

A story, with a real plot and less fluff and fill.

Has Hot Pursuit turned you off from other books in this genre?

Continue to look for good/great Stone Barrington books. The early ones were enjoyable.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Every characters voice sounded alike.

What character would you cut from Hot Pursuit?

All of them.

Any additional comments?

Not often we don't enjoy a book. This was one. It was as if Stuart Woods had to write a book and he took three minutes to do it.

Worst Book in the Series

I have listened to every book in the series and this was by far the worst. It was so thinly written with a plot that had little going for it till the mid 30s chapters. Everyone comes out smelling like roses with little effort and no suspense. Maybe I have over stayed my time with this series but this book seemed like little if any effort was put in to get the reader invested and inside of the story. The formulas used in this series should be tweeked to give the characters more substance and with a story and plot lines that are more challenging from a readers perspective. Overall a very uninteresting read in a series that should provide much more.

Two stories in One

So far this maybe my favorite Stone Barrington story yet. I didn't want the story to end.

Awful

All over the place. I have listen to 90% of the Stone books. This was really bad. I hope Woods gets back on track.

Is this the same narrator?

Would you listen to another book narrated by Tony Roberts?

If it is the same voice and voices of prior books. Something really changed in this narration. I had to look up the information. The only reason I knew it was Tony Roberts was the voice of Dino. I really had a hard time listening to this on. I LOVE his voices of Stone Barrington.

Did Hot Pursuit inspire you to do anything?

No.

Any additional comments?

I will continue to purchase Stewart Woods, but this one failed short.

Audio tape is flawed!!

What would have made Hot Pursuit better?

The audio tape is severely flawed ~ at one point there is additional conversation override ~ totally destroying the story behind it ~ please advise!!

Would you recommend Hot Pursuit to your friends? Why or why not?

Loved the book ~ disappointed with the poor quality of the audio book!!

Would you be willing to try another one of Tony Roberts’s performances?

Of course!!
