Publisher's Summary

Everyone is always telling Stone Barrington that he’s too smart to be a cop, but it’s pure luck that places him on the streets in the dead of night, just in time to witness the horrifying incident that turns his life inside out. Suddenly he is on the front page of every New York newspaper and his life is hopelessly entwined in the increasingly shocking life (and perhaps death) of Sasha Nijinsky, the country’s hottest and most beautiful television anchorwoman.

No matter where he turns, the case is waiting for him, haunting his nights and turning his days into a living hell. Stone finds himself caught in a perilous web of unspeakable crimes, dangerous friends, and sexual depravity that has throughout it one common thread: Sasha.

    "Up & Down Ride"

    Author seemed more interested in characters than the story. Also had problems with narator.

    "A Good Read"

    Fast, easy read. Nothing complicated. After the victim turns out to be a society climber with aspirations on news anchor, I was afraid that it would be one of those conspiracies built around hoidy-toidy New York society and that Sherlock Holmes would appear with a briar and a funny hat. But it turned out to be a reasonable cop drama. Not everyone is portrayed in a good light but that adds to the drama in it. It was light and fun; think I'll try another.

    Story
    "There were a few good twists"

    But many of the subplots seemed contrived and unrealistic, Overall it was a good book but not a great one. Now that the main character has been developed, I look forward to reading the next one.

    Story
    "Book 1 of Barrington series, good groundwork"

    I 've read several of Wood's Barrington series. this read gives the reader a good point of perspective for the succeeding books. Prefer the Tony Robert's narrations but this narration is not bad. Nuances of Stone and Dino 's relationship are delved into and this sets the stage for future works. Highly recommend this book.

    "JUST OK AS A BEGINNING!!!"

    I'm certainly a Stuart Woods fan but there were parts of this book that I found boring and other parts that the action picked up. I couldn't stay focused and found that I would have to rewind and listen again to catch up. I am going to move on to the next book in the series since the ratings seems to get better. I did enjoy Richard Ferrone's narration.

    "Too much sex and cursing."

    The sex and cursing is gratuitous. The story line was interesting in and of itself.

    "So so story line"

    This is the first of his I've listened to and did so because I enjoyed the performance of Richard Farrone. I might try another one or read it myself. I wasn't as into the story line as I am with other authors so it will not be at the top of my list.
