Standup Guy
Stone Barrington's newest client does not seem the type to bring mayhem in his wake. A polite, well-deported gentleman, he comes to Stone seeking legal expertise on an unusual--and potentially lucrative--dilemma. Stone points him in the right direction and sends him on his way, but it's soon clear Stone hasn't seen the end of the case. Several people are keenly interested in this gentleman's activities and how they may relate to a long-ago crime ... and some of them will stop at nothing to find the information they desire.

Fast moving, fluffy entertaing book as usual. Minus 1 star, though, for insulting the reader's intelligence by using the term "Faux News." Since Faux doees not actually rhyme with Fox, the author is either indicating that his characters are low intelligence, political ideologues, or that his readers are too dumb to know better.

Standup Guy is a very entertaining and quick read. Stuart Woods never disappoints in taking the reader into the elitist, well-connected world of Stone Barrington, a wealthy attorney extraordinaire. Woods guides the reader through several intertwining events with Stone and cop pal Dino. Familiar characters from the past resurface and several new characters are introduced. Stone is still randy, bedding any and as many beautiful females as the opportunity presents itself. However, in his latest conquest, Stone shows an unusual lack of judgment and misplaced trust, which I found a bit at odds for a man of his intelligence and education. While some criminal predicaments are brought to a conclusion a few new ones show promise of continuing in a future book, and I look forward to that.

All in all, a great read with a well thought-out plot. I always enjoy spending time with Stone and Dino. Will be looking forward to the next book.

Just finished reading this book. I'm a big fan of Stuart Woods and the Stone Barrington character in particular. Another fun, quick read in this series. Keep on writing Mr. Woods, and I'll keep on reading.
