Pressestimmen

"Stuart Woods is a wonderful storyteller who could teach Robert Ludlum and Tom Clancy a thing or two."-- "The State" (S.C.)"Woods is a no-nonsense, slam-bang storyteller."-- "Chicago Tribune""A heck of a plot, intrigue and cover-up between the first and last page."-- "San Antonio Express News"

Kurzbeschreibung

Stone Barrington thought he'd heard the last of former girlfriend Arrington after she left him to marry Vance Calder, Hollywood's hottest star. The last thing Stone expected was a desperate call from Calder. Arrington has vanished, and her new fiancé wants Stone to come to LA and find her.

In a town where the sharks drive Bentleys and no one can be trusted, Stone soon discovers he's drowning in a sea of empty clues that takes him from Bel Air to Malibu to Rodeo Drive. Running out of time and leads, he needs to keep his head above water and find Arrington fast, or end up swimming with the fishes himself.

A sequel to the outstanding Dead in the Water, this book is much more enjoyable when you know the background -- the story of Stone's unhappy romance with the oddly-named but delectable Arrington. If you've followed Stuart Woods' career, you'd know that his very first book was a sailing memoir (Blue Water, Green Skipper); it's a joy to see this author return to his boating roots in this and the preceding book. (You won't believe the scene in which Stone is thrown overboard with an anchor tied to him.) Even if you don't care beans for boats, cancel your appointments -- Dead in the Water and Swimming to Catalina aren't to be put down!!! (The title, incidentally, is a quote from Raymond Chandler: "Oh sure, I do something you don't like and I'll be swimming to Catalina with a streetcar on my back." What a combination -- an adventure/mystery writer at the top of his form, putting his appealing character on the same streets once prowled by Philip Marlowe. Stuart, THANK YOU! MORE!

I found the story a bit laborious but generally a good read. Stone's "escape scene" defies reader credibility. Perhaps the author could have thought of a slightly more plausible set of circumstances that would have been no less credible. After all, this is not a Superman episode, but a simple lawyer ("How do you describe a lawyer dead on the ocean floor?") who does complicated things.
Having spent some of my teenage years in and around the area of this novel I can relate very well to the scene painted here. I think it is very well done indeed. But, I think it's not as good as "Dead in the Water."
This is a good book to take on a business trip: not too cumbersome, not too taxing, and absorbing when you need to be absorbed (like when waiting for a plane connection).

Stuart Woods used to be one of the authors whose books I would buy as soon as they came out. Swimming to Catalina and the past few have moved him into "I'll wait for my public library to buy it, until I read anymore of his books" status. The plot is as thin as the Hollywood people Woods writes about and transparent from the first pages. Stone Barrington is supposed to be a character that women drool over, (Woods' prose is more explicit) but I could find nothing within worth emulating. Perhaps all character development has been done in earlier books. When the scheme that has Barrington moving from hotel, to hotel and back again is revealed, Woods wraps it all up within a few pages and calls it a day. A formula work at best.

These two books go together, and this was the second chronologically. But I didn't know that before reading them, and read this one first. The first chapter gives an insight to the ending of "Dead in the Water", but believe it or not, knowing that made "Dead in the Water" more enjoyable for me. I found both these books to be real page turners. I read this one during layovers and on the plane while making a business trip. When I got where I was going, I rushed out to a local bookstore for something else by Woods, and ended up with "Dead in the Water". Suspenseful, entertaining, thoroughly enjoyable.

Stuart Woods is an amazing author, he has never let me down. His novel Swimming to Catalina is the sequel to Dead in the Water. It is important to read Dead in the Water first to apprieciate Swiming to Catalina. Stone Barrington is the main character of both novels. He is an ex-cop of the NYPD from which he was forced to retire. Stone became a lawyer and joined a big firm in New York. In Swimming to Catalina Stone is trying to find his ex-girlfriend for movie star Vance Calder. Stone has plenty of trouble finding his ex. This was a great book just remember to read Dead in the Water first. Great job Stuart

This book should have been 200 pages thinner. It is boring for the first half. Woods seems to think that sex and mildly finny banter will sustain the book until the real story takes off. A smattering of plot is established and characters are introduced in the first 200 pages, but it all could have been done much more economicaly. The second half is fun, but still not up to Woods fine standard set by his previous books. If you don't have anything else to read, or if you need some light reading in between Andrew Vachss and J. L. Burke novels, this is light weight relief. Not awful, but not his best.

I listened to the book on tape, which might have been my first mistake (if buying the tape wasn't). I got a view of a man with zero personality whom women throw themselves after. Maybe it's a guy thing, being entertained by such tripe. Maybe it was poor editing, I don't know. I just couldn't understand how you can have a guy who's looking for a missing person. He already knows that the bad guy does criminal activity on his boats. Well, wouldn't you think that before you chose to sink one of his boats, you'd check to see if the missing person might be on it? Struck me as entirely too stupid.

I remember reading a Stuart Woods book a long time ago & liking it. I received this one as a gift & thought it would be a fine beach read. It was horrible from page one. Typical of a once decent writer now writing fast & furious to cash in on the mass paperback trade. The main character was so unbelievable - is he a superman or what? This guy can do it all without a scratch or bruise. LOTS of unnecessary sex and contrived wit that was not funny at all. PLEASE do yourselves a favor & read a classic mystery instead. Unfortunately I couldn't rate this lower than 1 star.
