Publisher's Summary

The outstanding new thriller from number-one New York Times best-selling author Stuart Woods.

Stone Barrington isn't one to turn away in the face of danger, so when he witnesses a tricky situation underway, he jumps in to lend a hand. He never expected, though, that this favor would lead to a mutually beneficial business deal with a prominent gentleman who requires the ever-discreet services of Woodman & Weld.

But in the ruthless corporate world, no good deed goes unpunished, and Stone soon finds himself the target of a ragtag group of criminal toughs who don't appreciate his interference in their dealings. From the isolated landscape of Maine to the white-sand beaches of Key West, the trail of deception, theft, and murder will lead to a perilous confrontation.

Just Not as Good as Previous Installments

I believe that I recognize and appreciate this series for what it is and what it is not. While not great literature, Woods has developed great core characters, and diverting, if largely implausible, storylines that, for me, have been perfect for audio books. I bet I've listened to at least 20 of the books in this series, and I have been consistently entertained and satisfied. I am in short, a faithful purchaser and listener of the books in this series. But this installment and the immediately preceding installment have, for the first time, been lackluster and disappointing. Here's hoping the author gets back on key in the next instalment.

Boring and disappointing

What disappointed you about Naked Greed?

Not much going on with the main characters, mostly on the mob, very boring…

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

Yes, he's fine it's the story.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment

Any additional comments?

I want a refund.

Good story; Great storyteller.

Great narration by Mr. Roberts as usual. He is fantastic. If I did not love love love the relationship between Stone and Dino, I would seriously reconsider reading the next volume because I am starting feel taken advantage of by the Author and the publisher. Each new novel released increasingly seems like a small part of much larger more complete storyline. In other words, we are all being charged 3 times for what should have been one novel.

Done with Stone Barrington books

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

not sure

What do you think your next listen will be?

Ace Atkins' Broken Places

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

After a while some of the characters started to sounds alike. I usually like Tony Roberts, but this was not his best performance.

He does it again ><br />

I always enjoy Stone and his adventurers.
This book however lacks Stone as the centerpiece, instead we are seeing the criminals point of view. and Stone just seems like a bored rich boy enjoying sex with every woman he meets.
I still enjoyed the book ......

Dull and duller! Save your credit!

Don't waste your credit! This was "hands down" the worst of the series. I have read most of them and this was a BIG disappointment.

A fun read

This is a fun way to kill time in the car. Stone's free common sense advice from the books have helped me more that once in real life ;)

Not a favorite

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Tony needs to pronounce words and names correctly. The story line is boring. Every woman he meets he sleeps with immediately, this one being a sex addict is not appealing. Seems like by now he would have some diseases. There is no romance just fast and often sex. I also don't know why everyone stone meets comes from Delano, GA. It is so predictable. There are a lot more cities and states.

What could Stuart Woods have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

See above.

How could the performance have been better?

Tony's voices are sounding alike in this one. He really needs to work on pronouncing words correctly, aeroplane and hilicopter? Really? Every book?

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Not so much.

terrible ending!

terrible ending for a pretty good book we rewound it in disbelief and we're just adding words to get to 20.
