Publisher's Summary

In Swimming to Catalina, ex-cop turned Manhattan attorney and investigator Stone Barrington is back, still smarting from his sudden breakup with brilliant, beautiful magazine writer Arrington Carrington, who has left him to marry Hollywood's hottest male star, Vance Calder. Then Calder calls Stone for help: Arrington has vanished without a trace, and Calder, refusing to call the police, wants Stone to find her.

Arriving in LA with little to go on, Stone soon finds himself in the deepest kind of trouble as he nearly drowns in a sea of lost leads and empty clues that take him from Bel Air to Malibu to Rodeo Drive. In a town where the sharks drive Bentleys and no one can be trusted, Stone must use all his wits to find Arrington and keep his head above water...without losing it.

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.

Drop in quality

I listened to Chiefs - quite brilliant - and Dead in the \Water - pretty good with a great twist and then this novel. This was a disappointment. Stone is not really likable as a character but in Dead in the Water the plot saved him; in this one the plot seemed like an afterthought once the author had named every restaurant he liked in LA and his favorite meals and wines and then stretched the story from one sexual encounter to the next. I stuck with it to the end but won't be downloading another in the series.

I LOVED!!!! this book and I love Stone Barrington

I don't under the complaints/criticisms of the story or of Tony Roberts reading. It kept me on my toes and I couldn't put it down. I have enjoyed Tony Robert's interpretation of this and other Stone Barrington books and look forward to downloading more of the series. Stone is quite the lover, but at least we don't have the lurid details of each affair. Better left to our imagination. He makes me wish he was real, I would love to meet him, but sadly I'm not tall enough or beautiful enough to pique his interest. I can dream, can't I?

Narrator almost ruins the story

I'm listening to these years after I first read them. I love Stone. I love Dino. I love the spin off's. While this isn't the best of the first four in my opinion, it was fun. The narrator, though, is just horrible. Dino's voice sounds like a whiny baby, and all the other voices sound the same as each other, male and female. Such a shame. I can only imagine what Ray Porter or Scott Brick could have done with this.

Very predictable

A snoozer very predictable... Sick of hearing how much money he has and the tight jawed accent
