Publisher's Summary

Everyone is always telling Stone Barrington that he’s too smart to be a cop, but it’s pure luck that places him on the streets in the dead of night, just in time to witness the horrifying incident that turns his life inside out. Suddenly he is on the front page of every New York newspaper and his life is hopelessly entwined in the increasingly shocking life (and perhaps death) of Sasha Nijinsky, the country’s hottest and most beautiful television anchorwoman.
No matter where he turns, the case is waiting for him, haunting his nights and turning his days into a living hell. Stone finds himself caught in a perilous web of unspeakable crimes, dangerous friends, and sexual depravity that has throughout it one common thread: Sasha.

There were a few good twists

But many of the subplots seemed contrived and unrealistic, Overall it was a good book but not a great one. Now that the main character has been developed, I look forward to reading the next one.

A good start for the series

This is the first book of the Stone Barrington series, and I really enjoyed it.
A woman falls to her death? in front of Stone as he was walking down the street. She disappears, as he runs 12 stories up to her apt. to see if it's murder or suicide. Someone runs away, and the mystery and suspense begins. The book is full of twists and turns, full of clues that never fully give away just what happened to the falling lady, meanwhile Stone searches for answers, making some poor personal choices and gets himself in all kinds of trouble leading up to a nail biting ending.
The story kept me thoroughly interested, with good narration, so I listened and listened, and am now looking forward to the next of the series.
