I was s Stuart Woods fan. I loved Chiefs and the sequel. I even kind of liked my early Stone Barrington novels, but this last one, Below the Belt, is a complete waste.
Several times I felt Woods was padding with meaningless dialogue about stuff that truly had NOTHING to do with the plot and was of no interest. I mean dialogue that didn't move the plot ahead AT ALL. Like, a weather report. This happened several times. I found myself wondering if Woods actually wrote it or had an intern do it in his name.
And Stone's "love interest" adds zero to the story. She disappears midway through the book, never returns and it makes no difference whatsoever. She's the frickin' national security advisor but Woods just treats her as a piece of ass for Stone. Insulting. Give me a break.
And Tony Roberts shows that a good actor can be a dreadful narrator.
I think to like this book you have to be about 80 years old and male. I won't wast another credit on Woods/Roberts book unless the reviews just blow

Although I have enjoyed Stuart Woods and his Barrington Stone, this story was a waste of money and time. The story is uninteresting, plodding, and pretentious and read in a monotone. Below the Belt was relinquished to the recycle bin with 4 hours of listening remaining. This is one time when I would get my money back, if I could.
