Publisher's Summary

In Swimming to Catalina, ex-cop-turned Manhattan attorney and investigator Stone Barrington is back, still smarting from his sudden breakup with brilliant, beautiful magazine writer Arrington Carrington, who has left him to marry Hollywood's hottest male star, Vance Calder. Then Calder calls Stone for help: Arrington has vanished without a trace, and Calder, refusing to call the police, wants Stone to find her. Arriving in L.A. with little to go on, Stone soon finds himself in the deepest kind of trouble as he nearly drowns in a sea of lost leads and empty clues that take him from Bel Air to Malibu to Rodeo Drive. In a town where the sharks drive Bentleys and no one can be trusted, Stone must use all his wits to find Arrington and keep his head above water, without losing it. Drenched in Hollywood glitz and glamour, and filled with the dizzying plot twists and turns that have made his novels New York Times best sellers and international sensations, Swimming to Catalina is Stuart Woods' fastest paced, most riveting, and unabashedly fun thriller yet.

Must Listen

I am a huge Stone Barrington fan. As a lawyer I appreciate the realism of Stuart Woods legal eze. Typically Stone finds himself in trouble trying to help out someone he just met. This time he crosses the wrong "family" and finds himself alone in the middle of the ocean handcuffed and no life jacket. The lights to Catalina Island are miles in the distance and his buddy Dino is not there to help. One of Woods best. Keeps you on the edge the whole time. I highly recommend this book.

Stone is in L.A. to help his former lover's husband in a tangly intrigue set in the movie industry. He only has to shake hands with a beautiful woman and then they hop in the sack for marathon sex. It is amazing that he has the time or energy to solve the case. This one is pretty predictable -- why do I keep reading these trashy Stone Barrington novels?
