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...

Although Stone Barrington always lives close to the edge, I think he crossed the line in Quick and Dirty. I was disappointed to find him so shady.

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...
