Drenched in Hollywood glitz and glamour, and filled with the dizzying plot twists and turns that have made his novels New York Times best sellers and international sensations, Swimming to Catalina is Stuart Woods' fastest paced, most riveting, and unabashedly fun thriller yet.
"Glitter and greed abound in this more entertaining than mysterious cavort on the Hollywood scene." (AudioFile)
I am a huge Stone Barrington fan. As a lawyer I appreciate the realism of Stuart Woods legal eze. Typically Stone finds himself in trouble trying to help out someone he just met. This time he crosses the wrong "family" and finds himself alone in the middle of the ocean handcuffed and no life jacket. The lights to Catalina Island are miles in the distance and his buddy Dino is not there to help. One of Woods best. Keeps you on the edge the whole time. I highly recommend this book.

the music at the beginning of and end of each chapter was eery and Annoying.
Great mystery novel! I like Stone Barrington's style. Well written. I couldn't stop reading. I will start reading the next book in the series today.
Stone is in L.A. to help his former lover's husband in a tangly intrigue set in the movie industry. He only has to shake hands with a beautiful woman and then they hop in the sack for marathon sex. It is amazing that he has the time or energy to solve the case. This one is pretty predictable -- why do I keep reading these trashy Stone Barrington novels?
What made the experience of listening to Swimming to Catalina the most enjoyable?
As always, Tony Roberts brings Stone Barrington to life in a way no one else can. Not only does he do this but he fleshes out all the other characters in the book! Following the main characters thru another event in their lives brings dimension to all of them and the world of law, police, Hollywood and New York
What did you like best about this story?
I can not mention just one thing that I like about the story. It's a well woven story.
What about Tony Roberts’s performance did you like?
Mr. Robert's ability to flick from one character to another, no matter if female or male, origin included is great!
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
I can't give THAT away! =)
I love the narrator of the Stuart Woods novels. He is AWESOME! It is nice to have the same voice for all the characters throughout the different books.
