Stone Barrington is Stealth in the UK

Another quick read finished today.   Always a fun and mindless read when I delve into the adventures of Stone Barrington.   This is definitely the book that falls into my guilty pleasure box-  no real brain power needed and deep thinking involved.   I just kind of get lost in the story and chuckle at the absurdity of some of the escapades he finds himself in.   

Stealth (Stone Barrington, #51)Stealth by Stuart Woods
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

A very typical Stone Barrington novel, actually a little less death than normal in this one. Plenty of intrigue and plot twists. Stealth finds Stone in the UK for the entire book, no Turtle Bay house visits and minimal interaction with Joan. He does visit with Holly, Felicity, Dino, Viv and CIA director Lance Cabot. Not suprisingly, Stone ruffles some feathers and lands in the bedroom repeatedly in this current title. He meets his newest romantic partner as well as his nemesis for this installment while laid up in a military hospital following a car wreck. From there the intrigue, espionage, and plot turns commence.

Overall a fun enjoyable quick read.
