I really enjoyed L.A. Dead. This was probably my favorite so far.It was fast paced and a a real thriller. I have read all of his books except L.A. Times. The only one I did not enjoy was KISSER, this was, without a doubt, the worst ever. I hope this is not an indication of his future books.

Stuart Woods weaves yet another thrilling tale based on his most popular character Stone Barrington. After reading his latest ("Dirty Work"), I was drawn to this book, "L.A. Dead". It is a very fast-paced story that manages to keep you intrigued and guessing for all of its 300+ pages. Let me tell you a few things that may help you make up your own mind about "L.A. Dead" (NO SPOILERS):
Though I think this is fifth book in a series with his main character Stone Barrington, I did not feel at a loss at all for not having read any of his previous books. That alone impressed me, but then add on top of that a story that grabs you and does let go until the thrilling (and surprising) conclusion. Stone Barrington is called to LA to solve the mysterious death of one of Hollywood's biggest actors. The suspect? The true love of Barrington's life.
Woods combines characters that are cops, ex-cops, lawyers, famous actressses, and international smugglers and does it all masterfully. Pick this book up and you likely won't be able to put it back down until it's over. For a light read, it's very entertaining.

My pen-pal has hounded me for years to read Stuart Woods. Well, three years later, I do. L.A. Dead. It didn't float my boat, sorry. It didn't even make me want to read some of the authors other books. This books seemed to cliché.
Maybe the author has something about CA that he wants to say or maybe this is just his style of writing, but the randomness of people jumping from bed to bed is just dumb. And everyone knows except the wife. Just didn't seem to really grab me.
But let's go deeper. Stone, about to get married, just flies across the country to see his ex, who he supposedly had, on a prior event, retreated from. Why? Other people wanted him to go but why? And Arrington had wanted him to come, but why? Nothing is really hinted or said.
He is a big shot lawyer, and yet he can go where he wants and not have to worry about seeing his clients. Granted, a lot can be done by phone, but a lot can't.
The actions of the main characters seem too easy. Stone is working from the desk of a dead guy on a movie lot. His wife sneaks on the lot and takes pictures of him. Well, she had not been to this lot before. How did she get into the lot and how did she know where the office was?
Why does Stone want to not be in the same house with his ex, yet does not protest when she breaks bail and flies across the country to see him. Oh, there just happens to be a jet waiting to take each back to the west coast.
Another thing I didn't seem to understand. The police and searching a house, and Stone gets there, doesn't ask for a warrant or anything. This book dispelled any and all belief this man can be a lawyer. Conflict of interest is no problem and he seems to only think of the law when is suits.
Dino, well that is a nice character.

I am a big fan of Stuart Wood's Stone Barrington series, however, I don't think that this was one of his best. The reason for the three stars was because Arrington's character was so flat. Woods had done such a great job of making Arrington a fun, curious, and appealing character in his previous novels. But in this one, she is just boring and stupid. I don't know what happened! The plot is marginal and I was just glad that the book was over. The book should be read if you are reading through the series, but I do not recommend it as a stand alone read. Try "Swimming to Catalina" or "L.A. Times" if you are looking for something really good from Woods.

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good mystery or action book. This book has a strong plot with twists and turns that kept me reading. If you have read other Stuart Woods books, it has the same main characters, cop-turned-lawyer Stone Barrington, his side-kick friend and cop Dino Bachetti, Dino's wife Mary Ann, and Arrington, Stone's old flame. The story starts with Stone nearly marrying Mary Ann's sister, Dolce Bianchi. Then he gets a call from Arrington's doctor that she is in the hospital after her husband, Vance Calder, a famous movie star was shot dead in his home. Stone runs to Arrington's aid in L.A. and ends up at her defense, she is the main suspect in the murder. During all this, Stone decides Dolce isn't the woman for him and she gives him troubles through the entire book, desperate to be married to Stone.

Being a newcomer to Stuart Woods books, I've definitely found a writer I like. His characters are true to life, or what I think they probably are like in the movie industry. This book is a definite must read and I will be reading the rest of his books.

I just started reading Stuart Woods,he's just an explosive writer! This Stone Barrington novel was great! It's a "who done it" and an "are we really married?" all rolled into one. This character (Stone)is what every woman wants in a man. He's smart, well dressed, has money, can solve problems and is even sexy. The ending of this book surprised me.
