Read Fast and Loose (Stone Barrington, #41) Online Free - In the latest thriller from #1 New York Times-bestselling author Stuart Woods, Stone Barrington's newest foe has a short fuse...and it's just been lit.
Stone Barrington is enjoying a boating excursion off the Maine coast when a chance encounter leaves him somewhat the worse for wear. Always able to find the silver lining in even the unhappiest circumstances, Stone is pleased to discover that the authors of his misfortune are, in fact, members of a prestigious family who present a unique business opportunity, and who require a man of Stone's skills to overcome a sticky situation of their own.
The acquaintance is fortuitous indeed, for as it turns out, Stone and his new friends have an enemy in common. He's the sort of man who prefers force to finesse, and who regards any professional defeat as a personal and intolerable insult. And when Stone's sly cunning collides with his adversary's hair-trigger-temper, the results are sure to be explosive...

Another quick, formulaic read, my rainbow cotton candy after a couple of "deep" books. #41 carries the Stone Barrington baton, with the adventures getting ever more superficial and unlikely, the characters ungrowing, the sex all vague cardboard-cutout encounters (the description of a weapon is mo...

Come on....how about an actual plot and some thought into a story. His stone Barrington stories are getting like stephanie plum stories: a couple different scenarios plugged into a thin plot. Guess what? Stone finds a new woman to share his bed, some one tries to kill him, he spends a lot of mone...

The Christian St. Clair Story, Part II. First of all, I teetered between 3 and 4 stars a long time on this one, but sided to the shy due to Woods' error of omission. In Part I, Ed Rawls engineers the takedown of Christian St Clair and his unho...

One of the lamest and dullest stories in this series of many hits and few misses. Hopefully, the next is better. 4 of 10 stars

One of the best installments of the recent offerings. Suspense and great characters. I think Woods got a bit lazy in the last few years but this brought the series back. Kudos.

What a guilty pleasure...the lives of the rich & famous as the travel & dine where the elite meet...again they have enough sex to keep off the weight from all their good food...Stone confronts a former CIA official, from an earlier story, who has taken over an investment firm that will us...

Maybe I'm just going soft in my old age, or maybe I've just come to realize that a respite from the shoot-'em-up, gory entrails and head games in my usual reading fare is a good thing. But the fact is, for the most part I actually enjoyed this, the 41st in the Stone Barrington series. Yes, it's b...
