Publisher's Summary

From number-one New York Times best-selling author Stuart Woods comes a sizzling new adventure featuring perennial fan favorite Stone Barrington.

In the wake of a personal tragedy, former CIA operative Teddy Fay - now a successful Hollywood film producer known as Billy Barnett - takes a leave of absence to travel and grieve and lands in Santa Fe in the company of his friends Stone Barrington and Ed Eagle. There, fate hands him an unexpected opportunity to exact quiet revenge for his recent loss, from a man who helped to cover up the crime.

But when his enemy wises up to Teddy's machinations, a discreet game of sabotage escalates to a potentially lethal battle. From the arid splendor of the New Mexico desert to the glamour of Hollywood's rolling hills, it will take all of Stone Barrington's diplomacy and skill to maneuver for Teddy's advantage while keeping innocents out of the crossfire.

Mr. Barnett is no joke

I like it when Mr. Woods goes off the beaten path and fleshes out a story with some of his ancillary characters.

Good like the old ones

Fun Teddy Fay story and as good as the old Stone Barrington books. Enjoyed it very much, and it makes the time in the car go by sooooo quickly! I look forward to the next one :)

Stuart Woods - Unbound

Great story, as usual. Tony Roberts always does a professional job narrating the book. Can't wait for next book.

Okay, but not the usual standard from this author

This is not a Stone Barrington book as it was advertised. This is a Teddy Fay book with Stone being a minor character. It was an effort to finish the book.

unbelievably bad plot and story

I do understand this is fiction, but come on,this story was over the top, with so many holes in the plot. The narrator tried, his accents were terrible. Not sure Stuart Woods even tried writing a good story. The characters were all over the top and not believable at all

Boring and very little Stone Barrington

It's been a while since I downloaded a Stone Barrington novel so figured I was due. Should have stayed away. Generally, the last few have still been worth a listen primarily because of the Dino Bacchetti character. However, (spoiler alert) he doesn't make an appearance in Unbound.

To be clear, this is a Teddy Fay novel not Stone Barrington. But it follows the same script of numerous other Barrington novels especially the protagonist. Seems like I've heard the exact same villain in the dozen or so books -- a two-dimensional self-absorbed, greedy sexist. Fay was somewhat interesting as a side character but by himself it gets old fast.

May be done with Woods' Barrington series. It's been a good ride but it's time to get off.

Dull

Must have been under a deadline to submit a story and introduce a new character to keep the dollars flowing.possibly Wood’s word processor took over and delivered a robotic product delivered by a drone.

Stale & stilted

I don’t know how the story progressed because I couldn’t stand the stilted dialogue any more. I thought a New Mexico-themed book would be great for my drive from Phoenix to Oklahoma City, but before I even got to Flagstaff I was done. The narrator was one of the worst I’ve heard on an Audible book. There a lots of folks who love this series, and maybe I would have loved to read it, but this Audible book really fell short.
