First Sentence
Dinner had been wonderful-twelve around a gleaming oval table of burled walnut in a dining room a dozen stories above the light-flecked carpet of Central Park, the cooking by the chef of a famous restaurant a few blocks away, the wines from the host's superb cellar, and the company carefully chosen by a couple who could cast a wide net. Read the first page

Reading Stuart Woods'"Dirt" was like reading a made-for-TV movie: Glamorous characters, fast-paced action and nothing too deep to make your head hurt. I could easily imagine Tom Selleck as Stone Barrington, and I'm sure Susan Lucci could star as the bitchy gossip columnist Amanda Dart. Though I find Woods' characters to be cardboard cutouts, his pulpy plots are entertaining. This is definitely beach reading.

Stuart Woods has quickly become one of my all-time favorite authors. After reading one of his novels, I decided to start at the beginning of his Stone Barrington series. I read "New York Dead" and then moved on to "Dirt." Woods does a great job of maintaining his character development of Stone, and Stone naturally grows into his role as a lawyer. I was not impressed with the book in the beginning, after several chapters the book got much better and went at a very fast pace. Definitely a good ending on this one too. I recommend this novel for anyone who likes series, but start at the beginning with "New York Dead."

THIS WAS THE FIRST STUART WOODS BOOK I HAD READ. I THOUGHT IT WAS VERY CAPITVATING FROM THE GET GO. THE CHARACTER STONE BARRINGTON IS AWESOME. I AM NOT A BIG READER, BUT I USUALLY TEND TO STICK TO THE SAME THREE AUTHERS, AND IT TAKE ME ABOUT A MONTH TO READ A BOOK. NOW, ONCE I PICKED THIS BOOK UP, I COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN. I HAD IT FINISHED IN FOUR DAYS. WHICH LIKE I SAID IS EXCELLENT FOR ME. I LOVE THE WAY MR. WOODS WRITES HE GIVES JUST ENOUGH DETAIL, NOT TOO MUCH, BUT ITS ENOUGH WHERE YOU CAN PICTURE WHAT HE IS TALKING ABOUT. I CAN TELL I WILL BE READING A LOT MORE OF YOUR STONE BARRINGTON NOVELS, THANK YOU FOR ENLIGHTING ME.

Trouble with this novel are its cast of urban characters. With minor exception they come off as people who make more money than they deserve, who appreciate little of what they've accomplished and what has been beneficently dealt them, and this is one reader who would have nothing to do with their kind. The story is well-written, but it's about samples of the species who might not deserve a recorded story.

I'm a big fan of Woods, but I'm writing this review to say that he shouldn't be judged by this book, which is appropriately titled. I'm not sure he would agree, but his best book is "Heat", and I wish he would write another like it. All of his other Stone Barrington books are to be recommmended with higher marks.

Another Stone Barrington book and as usual very entertaining. Nothing spectacular or earth shattering but enjoyable and something to look forward to reading each night.

If you have never read Woods before, you might be better off skipping this one and picking up an earlier work first. Not that you should ignore DIRT, but you might want to try CHIEFS, SWIMMING TO CATALINA, N.Y. DEAD, or THE RUN first. I have read maybe half of Woods' books, and this is the first one I can find reason to speak negatively about. Not too negatively, mind you. You want intrigue, you want flash, you want Flesh? You got it with DIRT. And lots of flesh. Woods always sprinkles a healthy bit of graphic sex into his stories, but DIRT relies on the sex a bit too heavily, taking away from what could be a typically taut Woods story and turning it into a letter to Penthouse, the story lost in the smut. I sound harsh, again I will attempt to state that DIRT is a good read, but you have to wonder, what happened to Stuart Woods? Tabloids and sex, fine. Good even. Ferragamo shoes and purple label Ralph Lauren suits. Fine again--status and all that. More sex. Still fine. Just stop trying to show off there Stu. Cartier, Rolex, Chanel, Purple Label, whatever. You got a good story, it just got lost somewhere between the bedroom and Barney's.
