Elaine's, late. The place had exhausted its second wind, and half the customers had gone; otherwise she would not have given Stone Barrington quite so good a table-number 4, along the wall to your right as you enter. Read the first page

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Rating System:
1 star = abysmal; some books deserve to be forgotten
2 star = poor; a total waste of time
3 star = good; worth the effort
4 star = very good; what writing should be
5 star = fantastic; must own it and share it with others
STORY: When off-duty detective Stone Barrington is a witness to body landing at his feet from a several story apartment complex, he is thrust into a mystery of money, jealousy and police politics.
MY FEEDBACK:
1) Woods has a very easy to read style of writing. You can zip through his book in no time
2) Warning: Adult content. Explicit sex, profanity and alternate lifestyles within these pages. Some reader may find this offensive.
3) Biggest complaint I had was how immature I felt the author handled the sex. It was almost like a dirty old man sharing his personal fantasies vs. an author deftly crafting a steamy scene.
4) Stone is a strong, fun character to follow and he is cliché in all the ways that readers like and keep coming back for more.
OVERALL: I think the average person will find this a good read, even though I personally didn't care for the ending much. Its not that I felt the author jipped me or tied things up too nicely, I personally didn't care for the central content of why things happened. I've been told that this is his only book done this way and if I liked his writing then try his other Barrington books. I will do this.

Stuart Woods Stone Barrington books are always continuous action and great characters. New York Dead was another suspenseful adventure that held my attention from start to exciting finish.

NEW YORK DEAD is pure entertainment. Quick and fun. Stuart Woods has created an enviable character in Stone Barrington. He always gets the girl...in fact he gets all the girls. Stone is smart, handsome, debonair and he spends alot of time in bed. Even the tragic events in Barrington's life like losing his job or a romance ending are so not tragic that little sympathy is evoked. With a wry sense of humor and very little effort, Stone goes about solving mysteries. Novelist Woods deftly maintains the suspense throughout the story and rewards the reader with surprises at the end. This is a book (and a series) that will appeal to men and women, so long as they are not in the market for gripping, gut-wrenching intensity. - Robert John Estko, the author of the suspense thriller, EVIL, BE GONE (available on amazon.com)

There can never be enough detective novels set in NYC for my taste (I could be bias since I live here). After reading this book I can say that I look forward to reading the rest of the Stone Barrington series. This book is very well written and the story was very enjoyable. Of course the most important thing was the the story flowed,the pages kept turning.

New York Dead is my first Wood's book, but it won't be my last. I have to agree with some other reviewers....New York Dead is a silky smooth read. The plot unrolls itself without interruption from the first page to the last. The characters, both weird and normal (is there such a thing) are entertaining to say the least. Isn't it the search of entertainment that keeps us avid readers coming back for more??? Stuart Woods delivers.
Can anyone survive the fall from a twelve story building? Well they do in New York Dead. That's not the only surprise in the book.
Get the book and read it you won't regret it.
