I was rather disappointed with this book. I know it is fiction but this was beyond believable or credible. Everything was too good to be true. There was no character development. You would think that with a death of a major character, there would be more emotion expressed, but they were cold and businesslike. Peter, who is Stone's son and at the age of 16, is so accomplished and perfect. In fact, a movie mogul is willing to pay him millions of dollars for a movie he put together at his school (really???). I had to finish the book but was continuously rolling my eyes. Don't waste your money buying it. Borrow it from the library.

I always enjoy a Stuart Woods novel, especially the ones featuring Stone Barrington. I needed this one to fill in some blanks.

HASH(0xa14d4c00) out of 5 stars Stuart Woods needs to hang up his pen Sept. 23 2011
By Kathleen A. Petruska - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I have been reading the Stone Barrington series since the first one was published. I have accepted them for what they are which is a quick, light weight read good for a day at the pool. Unfortunately this latest attempt does not belong at the pool but more like in the pool. This does not even qualify as a "mystery" as there is no mystery about the identity or motive behind the murder that occurs. In addition the murder occurs more than half way through the book. THe story line (such as it is) revolves around Stone getting to know the son that he fathered with Arrington Calder 16 years before. And what a son he is! Perfection in every way! Smart, innovative, well-mannered, polite, a budding genius who has filmed and edited his first film at age 16. Peter (the son) is so perfect that he made me want to reach for a barf bag.

There is however one major fault with both Peter and Stone and that is there absolute lack of any real human emotion from either one of them. When the murder occurs neither one of them seems to spend any time at all grieving for the deceased. They just pick themselves off, dust themselves off and get along with the important matters such as the reading of the will and getting Peter accepted into the Yale Drama School.

If this is what Mr. Woods is turning out nowadays and calling it writing then perhaps he needs to consider retirement as his next option. Mr. Woods and his editor and publisher need to hang their collective heads in shame over this one.

HASH(0xa14d4e4c) out of 5 stars Huge disappointment! Sept. 22 2011
By S. Harmon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This seemed to be just a narration of a month or so in the life of the super, super rich where dad can spend any amount of money and change legal documents, get his son into Yale for the right price, etc. There was no plot to speak of, no snappy dialog with Dino, no nothing. I always look forward to the next installment of Stone Barrington's life but this is just boring and a total waste of money.

HASH(0xa14d4e10) out of 5 stars Only Because 1/2 Star was not an Option Sept. 28 2011
By Maynard L. Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
As an avid reader of Stuart Woods since "Chiefs" in 1981, I was very disappointed in this book. It was complete garbage from the start. Rich parents, spoiled kid, everthing available, no parental compassion, etc. My disappointment also extends to Amazon for not offering this as a $.99 kindle special, although even that would have been an overcharge. I can only wait to see if Woods' next book resumes to the quality that we expect from him.

HASH(0xa14d6120) out of 5 stars really one bad read Sept. 30 2011
By A. Causanschi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
seriously - this is such a poorly written book - zero emotion from the main character when his wife is murdered - not a tear shed. same emotion throughout the book - not one of the characters showed ANY emotion - a son not to shed tears when his mother is murdered - life may go on, but on the next page?????? So sorry i bought it and it will make me think hard before buying another Stuart Woods book - and i had loved all his others. REALLY bad!

HASH(0xa14d6180) out of 5 stars A new low for what used to be a good writer Oct. 15 2011
By K. Seger - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I decided after the last Stone debacle to stop spending money on Stuart Woods books which is ashame because I have read every book he has written. I reluctantly checked this one out of the library and read it and it is at best a head scratcher. 200 pages in to the 304 page book (which is the SW magic number of pages his publisher must make him write) there was no plot, point etc. It was just a serious of days for rich people and an impossibly smart and mature teenager. I need to get a few things off my chest.
1. Stop with the airplane crap. For the love of God man we know you like airplanes
2. Conseratively speaking the man spends $200k a year in restaurants.
3. It isnt interesting to hear what kind of clothes he is wearing. We get that he is rich and fashionable.
4. How many rich people will show up, die and then leave him something hugely valuable? He has inherited, 3 planes, 4 houses, a hotel, a company etc.

Anyway the list could be longer but you get the point. Do not buy this book. The ghost writers are even slipping and Woods is using characters he did a good job creating years ago as an annuity payment with the crap he is slinging now.
