Publisher's Summary

From number-one best-selling author Stuart Woods comes an extraordinary new series starring an old fan favorite: Teddy Fay.

When President Kate Lee calls Stone Barrington to Washington on an urgent matter, it's soon clear that a potentially disastrous situation requires the kind of help more delicate than even he can provide...and he knows just the right man for the job. Teddy Fay: ex-CIA, master of disguise, and a gentleman not known for abiding by legal niceties in the pursuit of his own brand of justice.

this is the best Stone Barrington book in years.

Woods has been toddling along for a dozen books with "life doesn't get better then it does for Stone Barrington". people who followed his character through all of soap opera Renditions have been waiting for Woods to get back on track. used to be he wrote exciting and compelling books. now you tune in just to find out how stone is doing like you might call an old friend. wouldn't that be great if the franchise continued writing thrillers that had some Thrills in it like this.

Teddy Fay

Great read. Refreshing to get away from multiple sexual escapades by Stone Barrington. Good story line.

Best in years and all are great!

Really enjoyed it . unlike a lot of the books in this series, this plot kept you wondering who was the prep until the very end.

Just more of Wood's political propaganda

What would have made Smooth Operator better?

If Stuart Woods were to set aside his humorless political nonsense and return to his considerable storytelling skills.
This will be the last Stuart Woods book I purchase until there is clear evidence of non-political agenda.

What do you think your next listen will be?

It will definitely not be any recently written books by Stuart Woods.

What about Tony Roberts’s performance did you like?

As always, Tony Roberts performance was outstanding.

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

The writing was an improvement over other recent political nonsense that Woods has foisted off on his unsuspecting fans. That made it all the more annoying to discover his political agenda midway through the book.

Any additional comments?

I am completely fed up. It's time for Stuart Woods to put this series to rest.

"AND" author ruins another book

What is it about these good authors AND someone who ruin good stories? I've always liked the simplicity of Stuart Woods' books, but this was just stupid. Stone Barrington would never be involved with a guy like Teddy Faye who is basically killing everyone involved in the story. Nope. The narrator was ok but not a lot of differentiation.

Not worth the time.

Surprised Stuart Woods allowed his name to be used on this book. Poor story line and not well written.
