Class Act

This is the 58th installment in the Stuart Woods series about Stone Barrington.  At this point the series is definitely a bit predictable in certain aspects, dinner with Dino; Stone as a playboy;  people wanting to kill people.  All of this was present but I did find the plot a little better than the recent installments in the series.  I also found some of Stone's decisions to be a deviation from his normal behavior with a bit of a more edgy and questionable slant.  The plots are enough to keep my attention and will keep me returning for more but if you are looking for highly thought provoking or intricate details this is not the series for you.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

On one hand this is a typical Stone Barrington story. Rotating trysts and people wanting to kill him amidst fancy dinners at PJ Clarke’s and Patroon. This installment was a bit more gritty and showed a side of Stone that isn’t often seen. He is faced with some moral and ethical choices that he deals with himself rather than passing off to Herbie or other associates. This book will full of action, deceit and double crossing highlights the fact that people are not always what they seem and their pasts may surprise you
