Read Quick & Dirty (Stone Barrington, #43) Online Free - Stone Barrington gets entangled in the intricate and rarefied art business in the latest thriller by #1 New York Times-bestselling author Stuart Woods.
When a slam-bang of a crime brings a beautiful new client into Stone Barrington's office, little does he know his association with her will pull him into a far more serpentine mystery in the exclusive world of art. It's a business where a rare find could make a career--and a collection--and mistakes in judgment are costly. And under its genteel and high-minded veneer lurks an assortment of grifters and malfeasants eager to cash in on the game.
In the upscale world of New York City's luxury penthouses and grand Hamptons estates, it will take a man of Stone Barrington's careful discernment and well-honed instincts to get to the truth without ruffling the wrong feathers . . . because when it comes to priceless and irreplaceable works of art, the money and reputations at stake are worth killing for.

2.5/5 stars - I am so disappointed and frustrated with what this series has sunk to become. I used to be a rabid fan of Woods' works, preordained EVERYTHING the second word was released....I hold a special place in my heart for Stone and Dino and the gang, but PUH-LEEEASE. The story lines have be...

Much better than #42. Stone gets involved with a hedge fund widow, whose husband did a swan dive off their balcony. A Van Gogh painting has disappeared and Arthur Steele's insurance company hires Stone to find it before they have to pay. In the background is a story about art forgery, provenance,...

A mostly pointless story around forged art with limited interest. 4 of 10 stars

I consider the Stone Barrington books to be a guilty pleasure. They are quick reads and I can fantasize about being super wealthy and super promiscuous. Able to have sex many times a night with amazingly beautiful women. Able to fly my own jet across country or across the Atlantic to live in luxu...

#43 in the Stone Barrington series (and #63 in the Barrington universe). In the latest installment of my favorite soap opera, Stone is rather reserved - he doesn't bed his latest female acquaintance until page 40, though to be fair, he doesn't meet her until page 26. A possible insurance scam is...

This was a pretty typical Stone Barrington book but like the last one that I read they do not have some of the excitement that earlier novels have had. In this story as usual a rich, beautiful woman comes to Stone looking for some help. A Van Gogh has been stolen from her apartment and she would...

Reading Stuart woods, especially the stone Barrington books, is like watching a soap opera...you must suspend all elements of reality. Don't think too much, or the story falls apart. But if you want a quick read, with no substance, this is it. This particular book was full of plot holes and unans...

I kept thinking I must have read a prior Stone Barrington -- after all, this IS number43 -- but if I have, it's completely left me. Can't speak for the others, but I enjoyed this one -- loved the art business, both legal and not. Wonder how many paintings in famous galleries are really fakes -- k...
