The Stone Barrington Series Seems Back on Track

The last few Stone Barrington novels have been interesting because they dealt with family, friends and financial wheeling and dealing. They were not horrible but I missed the good old days of Stone and Dino working together to catch the bad guys.

DC Dead is a great book with all the things that originally drew me to the Stone novels. Stone and Dino are whisked off to DC in order to investigate what may be a suicide but could also be a murder. As the book progresses and the murders pile up we go on a ride that is half murder mystery and half excellent recipes for perfect cocktails.

While I will not mention it here, there is a whole other plot line involving Holly Barker that did not quite seem to make sense so I am assuming it will lead in to the next Stone novel. Hopefully this distraction was not to just fill pages.

If you like the Stone Barrington novels, you will really enjoy this one. As always, Tony Roberts done a fantastic job with all the voices throughout. If they ever change Tony out, I might lose interest, he is that good.

Not one of Woods' best efforts

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Yes, but not strongly. I thought the story had several holes in the detective work, and a couple of dumb conclusions on the part of our heroes Stone and Dino. Appeared they were thinking with the wrong head on several occassions. Stuart seems to be fascinated with Teddy Faye who appears yet again. I've about had all of the exposure to him I care for.

Would you be willing to try another book from Stuart Woods? Why or why not?

Yes. Woods is one of my favorite authors, and everyone has a not so good effort from time to time.
