Publisher's Summary

Successful movie producer Wolf Willett is stunned when he sees his own death reported in a major newspaper. It says he was a victim in a triple homicide during a sordid tryst with his wife and a friend. But who is the unidentified corpse? Why can't Wolf remember anything about the night in question? And who wants him dead?

Wolf had the means and motive - and his inexplicable memory loss seems far too suspicious to suit Sante Fe's crusading DA, who promptly has Wolf arrested. And when another murder complicates the scenario, he turns to hotshot criminal attorney Ed Eagle to help clear his name - and stop a killer who's determined to finish the job.

Really worth it

it kept us guessing, which is rare, but it didn't have an ending that was out of left field - the way that some writers try in order to prove that they can outsmart the reader.

Too much sex stuff

Stuart Woods is a talented writer except he needs to quit all that description of women as sexual objects I found this book to be sexist and ridiculous, I only got to chapter 4 when I quit.

Read in order

I love Ed Eagle. I advise listening/reading in order as they were written to avoid being confused or knowing something that already happened.

Good characters, narrative OK, setting was good.

A good Stuart Woods romp. NOT As good as Stone Barrington but enjoyed. Will get next in series.

surprise

This book begged me to listen to the end from the first chapter. This kept me guessing and I was delighted with the surprise ending.

Difficult to LISTEN

Good story, maybe even a very good read, but narrator tough to listen to, especially compared to the Stone Barrington stories in which To y is so nice and easy to listen to...

Great style but holes in the plot that are huge.

A good beginning but the work is not finished. It major plot point is not discovered until 2/3 through the book and makes them all seem breathtakingly dumb The key to solving a murder it’s not subtle or nuanced . The characters were dated in that the stereotypes were so broad and, let the Stone Barrington serious, but not as bad, changed with sexism. Stuart Woods could have done better!

Good story

Exciting. Good whodunnit set in the morally corrupt entertainment world. No one particularly admirable, but plenty of interesting, quirky characters.

Change of Pace

Love Stuart Woods. Good story. Plot was a little convoluted. Did not have the spark of Stone Barrington or Holly Barker

Standard storyline -nice background setting

Other than an interest in Santa Fe, lacked the rich, descriptive language that would normally grip my imagination in a mystery.
