Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

Stuart Woods is a master of the glitzy, high-concept, suspense thriller, and Stone Barrington, hero of five previous mysteries, is the kind of private cop who glides gracefully between lavishly detailed dinners, private jets, fancy parties, sexy assignations in luxury hotels, and the occasional murder investigation. Occasionally he gets his hands dirty, but more often it's his sheets. L.A. Dead finds him in Venice, where he's about to marry the beautiful (but seriously crazy) daughter of a high-ranking Mafioso, whose other daughter happens to be married to Stone's best friend--an NYPD cop, naturally. The civil ceremony's over, but the church wedding is only hours away when Stone is called to L.A., where his former lover has just discovered her husband's dead body. The lover is Arrington (an oddity, given Stone's surname; did Woods just run out of imagination here?), the dead husband is a famous movie star, and everyone believes she killed him. Everyone except Stone, who's still in love with Arrington. He has a helluva time interviewing (and bedding) all the women in her circle, including the dead husband's private secretary, Arrington's best friend, her lawyer's mistress, and a number of Hollywood wives. Jackie Collins does the ladies better, but Stone manages to save the damsel in distress, get rid of his nutty near-wife without offending her father, and wrap up all the details except the most important one. No doubt he's saving that for the next book. In the meantime, Woods's many fans will snap this up and spend the interim wondering: if Stone marries the woman of his dreams, will that make her Arrington Barrington? --Jane Adams

2.0 von 5 Sternen What Have You Done With Stuart Woods? 31. Oktober 2001
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Normally one of my favorite authors and my favorite series, I found this book to be pretty bad. The dialog was shallow (do we need to hear his telephone calls word for word, including details of him identifying himself and leaving word on how to reach him?), the characters even shallower (are there *any* women in this book besides Mary Ann who don't walk around buck naked and throw themselves at Stone?). Even the main characters were pretty unlikeable this time around -- doesn't Stone have anything else to do but boink everyone in sight? Doesn't Dino have a job to do in NY? Why is a mob boss so easy on Stone for dumping his princess daughter? Why isn't Arrington at least grieving for a husband she certainly didn't dislike? Why would Mary Ann invite her sister to dinner knowing the circumstances?...

1.0 von 5 Sternen Who does the author think he is? 11. September 2001
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I have read all of Stuart Woods' previous books -- and loved many of them; however, the latest "Stone" novel is the worst book I think I have ever read. It has a reasonable plot, but very shallow characterization, poorly written dialogue, and contrived situations to create conflict between Stone and his lady friends. The author does little to make you like the characters, even the main character. Sad to say, I know Mr. Woods can do better. (Note to author: What happened, Mr. Woods? I am very disappointed and may not continue to read your work. However, I doubt that you would care -- the little note from you at the end of the novel certainly puts your readers in their places.)

2.0 von 5 Sternen Let down from the beginning. 13. November 2001
Von Tom Wilkinson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This is the third Woods novel I have read, and I thoroughly enjoyed the first two. LA Dead misses the mark badly. It is almost as if the author is too caught up in painting the Hollywood jet set that he forgot there is supposed to be at least some mystery and suspense. This novel has niether of these attributes. The characterizations are overdone. I cannot recall an appealing female in the plot. The "non-ending" is a perfect fit for this most imperfect novel.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Just Say No to Stone 5. Januar 2001
Von Charlie Bermant - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I've read every one of Stuart Woods' books. Some of the stuff he did early on was pretty good, and "Palindrome" was brilliant. His recent books were spotty, but interesting. This one is downright awful.
The "hero"--Stone-Lunkhead-Barrington--runs into all kinds of beautiful women who just want to sleep with him. Yeah, right. Since he's no bright light, it doesn't say a lot for these ladies. The plot is stupid, all about a murdered lothario movie star. Who killed him? Who cares? And the writing stinks. Every so often a character faces Our Hero and Woods has him "turn to Stone." Could it get worse? You betcha.
Woods' other books are saved by a twist ending, a "gotcha" that you wouldn't expect. Nothing like that here. Woods is clearly treading water, and time spent with this book is time wasted.
Popular fiction doesn't need to be great literature, but Woods is clearly spreading himself too thin. He could learn something from some of his contemporaries. Sue Grafton took herself off of the yearly grind before her books got stale, so she can craft them a little more carefully. And Nelson DeMille can leave you hanging from one book to the next because the ride is so good that you don't need a satisfactory resolution. What happens to Stone next? Who cares? Instead of the next Stone adventure I'll just buy a book about what happens when paint dries.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Woods Packs A Whallop Of A Punch With L.A. Dead! 16. November 2000
Von Brad Stonecipher - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I just started reading Stuart Woods about six months ago and I think he is a great writer. I especially like his novels that includes his main protaganist, Stone Barrington. I have been looking forward to L.A. Dead for months. I think this novel was one of the best novels that Stuart has wrote. Stone Barrington is in Italy getting ready for his marriage to Dolce, the daughter of a rich Mafia man. At the last minute before he gets married, he gets a call from the police in Los Angeles, saying that Vance Calder, Arrington's new husband, has been murdered and that Arrington is the main suspect. (If you don't know who Arrington is at all, then you need to start with the earlier Stone Barringon novels or you will be confused!) Stone dashes out of Italy and arrives in Los Angeles. Stone along with Dino Bachetti, his old partner and friend, must prove that Arrington is innocent and discover who the killer is before someone else dies. The only problem is that Dolce, Stone's fiance, is incredibly mad at Stone and she even gets a little violent. One of the things that will shock the readers is the ENDING! You will be in shock. I'm looking forward to Mr. Woods' next novel coming in the future.
