Publisher's Summary

Stone Barrington returns in the new action-packed thriller from the number one New York Times - best-selling author.

It's a time of unexpected change for Stone Barrington. A recent venture has achieved a great victory, but is immediately faced with a new challenge: an underhanded foe who is determined to wreak havoc at any cost. Meanwhile, when Stone finds himself responsible for distributing the estate of a respected friend and mentor, the process reveals secrets that range from merely surprising to outright alarming.

From the lavish brownstones of Washington, D.C., to the grand estates of New York's outer boroughs, the trail of sabotage, corruption, and murder culminates in a stunning conclusion.

Better than expected!

Frankly, I almost didn't choose this newest "Stone Barrington" book .The reviews were not encouraging and I didn't like the last book in the series. However, I took a chance on this one and I enjoyed it more than I anticipated. Lots of twists,turns and unexpected exciting bits that held my interest right to the end. Tony Roberts did a great job of bringing all the characters to life as usual! I still wish the author would skip the politics and tone down the sex scenes. But that's just this woman' s opinion. If you're a fan of the series I would recommend you try this one.

Disappointing

Any additional comments?

I own all of Stuart's content and it appears as he is starting to write short stories and calling them full works? What happened to the content? Less than 7 hours for an unabridged offering? Too fast and too quick lets the story suffer. If it's going to be a readers digest type book there should be readers digest type pricing.<br/><br/>1st time I have been disappointed enough by him to actually say something. He had been my number one author up to this point, is someone else writing these nowadays or just a bad day?<br/><br/>Rick S.

Light and fluffy; perfect for a rainy day murder!

Stone Barrington novels remind me of a 1950's romantic comedy. All of the principle characters are rich, accomplished highly successful New Yorkers. Servants and oddball assistants handle the menial labor leaving our hero to gallop around The Big Apple meeting other "swells" and interacting with members of the criminal underworld.

Crimes are solved and wrapped-up quickly and neatly allowing justice to prevail. But our man Stone remains the City's most eligible bachelor!

The book is enjoyable and won't interfere with your need to multi-task.

Time to Retire Stone

What was most disappointing about Stuart Woods’s story?

The author has increasingly become more interested in pushing his political views than writing a good story line. It is only because I have read all of the previous Stone books that I bothered with this one. I have lost interest now and will move on.

Not his best

I've listened to every Stuart Woods book ever made. This is mediocre at best. The story line never develops any emotion.

Okay but . . .

What did you like best about Insatiable Appetites? What did you like least?

This is a typical Stone Barrington story and his willingness for a romp in the sack. But, the political sidebar was a little much. Whether a democrat or republican, remarks about bad republicans and the obviously rich democrats made an incohesive story.

Would you ever listen to anything by Stuart Woods again?

We like the Stone Barrington series and always live vicariously through his episodes.

Which character – as performed by Tony Roberts – was your favorite?

We always laugh when Dino Bachetti speaks because he's so "New York/Brookyn" sounding and always has a wise-guy remark.

Did Insatiable Appetites inspire you to do anything?

This book solidified for me, not my husband, that I do not like politics!
