This is by far the worst Stuart Woods book to date. Same old characters in the same old places would be ok if there was a plot. But there is no plot, instead there is just a description of the son who is a completely improbable character.
The narration is only acceptable, Tony Roberts representation of female and italian characters is truly awful.
I have enjoyed the light reading of previous Stuart Woods books, but this one was a complete waste of money.

I'm not sure what to make of this Stone Barringtion book. While everyone must grow up, the joy of fiction is characters can be suspended in time. In this foray is all about wonderful rich people and there wonderful rich life. Stone makes lots of money as partner in firm, he gets close to his kid, his kid is smart, he finally marries Arrington, he looks nice in riding pants. There is no twist of government intrigue, no beautiful smart femme fatale, no car chase, no flash of Stone's hard edge ... in a nutshell no mystery or drama. All the things that have made Stone a favorite are missing. I kept waiting for the changed birth certificate to cause a problem. For the villian to actually be connected in some way to the premise of the kid's movie. For Herbie, Joan or Dino to get capped by mistake. Nada. What did happen was predictable. Tony Roberts did a good job, but this was my first real disappointment with the series.
