They are definitely entertaining. Interesting, a little long, but definitely enjoyable for a Stone fan. Guess it builds on the relationships with Holly, Carpenter and Lance for later books. Taken out of the series, its one of Woods poorer plots. He places his hand on the Bible and purposely lies, what more can I expect from a man that is lead by his penis. His moral principles suck. Not really predictable even though we know characters traits. I loved the spy involvement.
James Bond types! I have long been a fan of the Stone Barrington and Holly Barker stories, but in this book they have both degenerated into airhead horndogs.
Series: Stone Barrington
Their behavior, in the midst of tracking down a conscienceless murderer is bizarre. Stone does have a history of bedding any willing woman who crosses his path, so his behavior is not a surprise, but Holly's is. The storyline itself is fun and diverting, but I wanted to shake both of these late-thirties adolescents and yell: "Get with the program you idiots! In NYC where she does not have Police authority, she's unpredictable and nearly uncontrollable, frequently hareing off to chase the bad guy, outside her jurisdiction.
Maybe she left her brains in FL. I have listened to the SB series up to book 21, but I do not plan to continue the series beyond that point because the author's writing has continued to sink and sidestep into too much sleazy, pointless titillation. Story line was OK, but some of the dialogue was a little to corny for me. Not sure if it was the way it was written or the manner in which it was read.
I also did not care for the narrator's portrayal of the different character voices. I don't think I will pursue this series further. It was a bit of a struggle to finish. Your audiobook is waiting….
