    A lot of people are saying this author should quit writing this series, that every book is the same, that the author has a formula that he follows for every book. I say, maybe that's true, but I have read every one of the 30-something books in this series so far and I am still enjoying them. I like the recurring characters, the settings from New York to California, to Connecticut and Maine, to England and France, and I like Stone. I also like the fact that these books are always easy, enjoyable A lot of people are saying this author should quit writing this series, that every book is the same, that the author has a formula that he follows for every book.

I also like the fact that these books are always easy, enjoyable reads. Nothing too dark or too scary, just fun with a little mystery, kind of James Bondish. I picked up this book at the library yesterday about 11 and finished the book at 3 a.m. and I worked an 8-hour shift in there also. Stone Barrington is just one of my guilty pleasures.

    Potato chips! Seriously, these books are irresistible. Stone gets a new airplane, goes to London, helps foil a terrorist plot, and makes the social scene. I like the avionics details, he can't write sex scenes, but overall, I just enjoy reading these books. Potato chips! Seriously, these books are irresistible.

    Welcome to the 33rd book featuring filthy rich, impossibly well-connected female magnet Stone Barrington (or as I've taken to calling him, Stone Yawnington). Once again, the dialogue and action are ho-hum, but then that's the usual pattern. Maybe I've simply grown accustomed to it, but I was surprised to find I actually enjoyed this one more than the last two - or three or four. My actual rating, I should add, is 3.5 stars - but since that's not an option here, I rounded it up to four. It gets of Welcome to the 33rd book featuring filthy rich, impossibly well-connected female magnet Stone Barrington (or as I've taken to calling him, Stone Yawnington). Once again, the dialogue and action are ho-hum, but then that's the usual pattern. Maybe I've simply grown accustomed to it, but I was surprised to find I actually enjoyed this one more than the last two - or three or four. My actual rating, I should add, is 3.5 stars - but since that's not an option here, I rounded it up to four. It gets off to same old, same old, with prominent attorney Barrington taking ownership of a fancy new private jet and bedding at least two beautiful women all in the first couple of chapters (I'll give him points, however, for sticking with older, more experienced women for the most part instead of the youngest, blondest, beauty-pageant wannabes). One of those women is a pilot, who provides the requisite training for Barrington before he can fly his new machine solo. This, in turn, ushers in the first storyline: she's moved to New York, Barrington's home base, in large part to get away from a menacing former boyfriend who has a criminal background and apparently is intent on keeping her in his possession. In fact, wherever she lands, he turns up; now, he's got Barrington in his sights as well. At the same time, a trio of potential threats to international security have turned up to wreak as-yet-unknown havoc, posing problems for Barrington's long-time friend and now U.S. President Kate Lee (who recently was elected to replace her husband, Will, in the Oval Office). In one totally implausible early-on happening, another of the author's well-known characters, Holly Barker, now serves the President as a top adviser - and hires a young assistant almost literally from off the street on a gut feeling. Immediately, the young woman gets top security clearance worldwide and is given a major role in solving the security issue. Come on, now - I know the powers-that-be in Washington, D.C., have more than a few problems these days, but I refuse to believe it's that easy to land a job that puts you within whispering distance of the commander-in-chief of the U.S. Armed Forces within 24 hours. Chapters switch from one storyline to the other, with Barrington playing a role in each - if only by listening to someone on the phone during dinner or while in bed with one of those women and repeating what he was told on the phone to the person he's with after he hangs up (who in turn repeats it to someone else - it's at those times that the Yawnington angle rears its boring head, and unfortunately, they happen way too often throughout the book). Still, everything gets resolved satisfactorily and in relatively good fun - well, make that almost everything; as usual, there's at least one dangling issue that no doubt will carry over to the next Barrington book. And yawns notwithstanding, no doubt, I'll be reading that one as well - if only to make sure I've picked the best wine to accompany my sauteed foi gras.

And the plot that takes place in England is laughable...as a Brit there was not one thing Woods got right about how it works over here. Geographically he was competent but any fool can look at a map...the rest, just NO NO NO! SHEER UTTER SHE-ITE FROM START TO FINISH...WHY DID I BOTHER? EASY, IT TAKES TWO HOURS TO GET THROUGH and IT COST ME NOT A PENNY. WOODS CAN LONGER BE CALLED AN AUTHOR...such a terrible shame.

    It's another Stone Barrington novel, what can I say? It is full of the usual interractions with the bad buys and with the good gals. The story grabs you by the collar and pulls you through the book so you can find out what happens. The characters are well sketched out. J.

    No. Just no. Maybe I will have more to say later when my head stops hurting. Okay, two weeks later and my head has finally stopped hurting. Question: When will the author allow Stone to go into Elaine's for the early bird special or to experience his first episode of erectile dysfunction? The Stone character is fast (if not already) becoming a laughable parody of an " ageless" man. Come on now! How old is Stone? In his late sixties or early seventies?

There are so many ways to make and keep this character fresh and interesting rather than the same old fodder of past novels. For my reading pleasure, I can relate to a character who ages along with me. Stone still speaks and acts like he did nearly twenty years ago! Can we let him age gracefully and undiminished as an exciting character? Yes! If the author is willing to step away from the familiar past and take some realistic risks.

    I have to admit that I only read about 75 pages, and then I couldn't take any more. I got really bored with the characters, who seem mainly concerned with impressing us with how rich, powerful, and cultured they are. I didn't care what happened to them, so I stopped reading. Very shallow, poor writing. I have to admit that I only read about 75 pages, and then I couldn't take any more.

    This pompous high society/quasi political BS gets old very fast. Now I remember why I stopped reading Stuart Woods and I see that he didn't change. Not worth wasting my time on this pulp fiction. There is nothing "hot" about this novel. This pompous high society/quasi political BS gets old very fast. Now I remember why I stopped reading Stuart Woods and I see that he didn't change.

Life ain't perfect and the enemy's not stupid; you gotta let somebody die or the storyline slide sideways somewhere Stuart if you wanna maintain integrity as an action-adventure writer extraordinaire. Pat Grant was an obvious opportunity, but you no doubt have other things in mind for her in future novels. The best news about 'Hot Pursuit' is you created two new interesting characters, Millie Martindale and Quentin Phillips, and you let 'em devolve into hot sex whenever the spy stuff eases up. In fact, the Millie--Quentin relationship is the most interesting part of 'Hot Pursuit', hence the three stars. I just gave John Sandford the same lecture about Lucas Davenport; Stone's ancient now Stuart, let him retire and elevate Quentin as your next protagonist! Even if Stone is you, you ain't banging hot ferry pilots anymore, so give it up and let the next generation ride. Even Holly Barker's gotta be post-menopausal by now Stuart; you can't keep making her out to be a thirty-something that jumps at every window of opportunity her impossibly busy job allows. So Millie and Quentin are the hope that springs eternal. Maybe Barrington sees the only way the bad guys will stop threatening Peter and Hattie is if he sorta dies off and becomes invisible. Think about it; as it is, Stone Barrington is the modern day Lazereth, he can't continue to pull off miracles the way Jesus did. So, some unsolicited ideas, but they should be considered. Oh, and starting new chapters each time the storyline switched between the Al Qaeda plot and the Kevin Keyes plot was a smart way to keep things separated in the reader's mind. One final positive note; 'Hot Pursuit' like all of Woods' novels reads like your brain's best friend, so it goes by fast. This is actually a good read for a cross-country flight. SPOILER PLOT SUMMARY FOLLOWS: Drone Plot Against POTUS and British PM. Stone is living huge, taking delivery of his Citation M2 jet in Wichita. The delivery pilot, Pat Frank, is hot, savvy and a good pilot, and accompanies Stone back to Teterboro for a free ride and hot sex. Stone flies off to DC with Holly Barker for Kate Lee's inauguration, only to see her named National Security Advisor. At her first meeting, Homeland Security drops the intel that Al Qaeda was sending in Arab terrorists to attack the President. Holly hits the CIA up about a man she saw at an inaugural party and the discreet manhunt begins. Back in NYC, problems soon arise, as Pat is stalked by a former fellow airlines pilot and lover, Kevin Keyes. Keyes makes an unsuccessful attempt on Pat, kills two tenants and goes to ground. Stone suggests getting Pat out of NY, so they take a trip to UK where she is to ferry a jet back to the US. In the meantime, Holly hires a promising snerd Millie Martindale as her assistant and charters her with finding more about the mystery man the CIA has shrugged over. Millie quickly enlists a former Harvard fellow student and courter at FBI Counter Intel, Quentin Phillips, to put the search out for Jacob Riss, ID'd by a sketch and facial recog program. He quickly makes rain, rewarded by dinner and sex as the madeover Millie needs a main squeeze in DC. As Quentin heads to SF, Millie flies with Holly on AF1 to London, where coincidences worry Stone but turn into gold for Millie, the FBI and MI6. To his chagrin, Pat Frank only reveals her past in snippets as Keyes and his partner in crime Paul Reeves follow Stone, Dino, Viv and Pat around England. With a hot hit at his shirtmaker's shop, Millie learns that two twin half-brothers of the mysterious Ali Mahmoud, Dahai attaché in DC, are in London living in Dahai embassy property planning a black op. As strange things happen at the Dahai embassies in DC and London, the CIA & FBI hook up as Quentin and a team fly to London to set up surveillance ops in Regent's Park. Millie rewards Quentin's spy tradecraft with hot sex, as they plan the take down with quiet helicopters for rooftop raids on the Dahai embassy buildings. Meanwhile Stone's M2 is mined as Dino sniffs it out, blowing the front of the plane off. They hitch a ride back on Pat's ferry job, with Keyes and Reeves in hot pursuit. Parallel nighttime ops in London & DC take down the Dahai armed drones and capture the plotters. As Dino takes down Kevin Keyes in Bar Harbor, Maine, Lance Cabot sends Ali Mahmoud on a plane to London where his half-brother fellow plotters are under arrest. As the three would be terrorist bombers are flown back to Dahai, Lance makes contact with his Dahai Station Chief and engineers a SAM-7 welcome for the incoming airliner. Back in DC, Will Lee helps deliver his son as the nation rejoices.

    The soap opera continues with episode #33. Alcohol, especially Knob Creek flows freely; gourmet food abounds; Stone finds a new squeeze; Dino and Viv cover Stone’s back; and Stone gets a new jet. That being said. This latest from Woods' production line holds up well. To bring down a terrorist attack, Woods entwines inter-agency cooperation between the Americans and the British.

    Who is trying to scare Stone Barrington by shooting at him on several occasions and missing every time? Or were the bullets meant to scare his travel companion? Stuart Woods is great at having several storylines and connecting those storylines to conclude the story. Hot Pursuit was a fun read.

    Stone Barrington begins this book picking up his new Citation and his insurance pilot is a woman named, Pat Frank. As usual, Stone and Pat fall into bed immediately. Stone discovers her sister was Greta Frank, who was found not guilty of murder and had Herbie Fisher as her lawyer. Stone then gets involved with Pat and discovers that she has buried secrets of her own. She is being stalked by her ex. He gains entry into her new apartment building gifted by her by her sister and shoots two tenants.

Things become complicated when her ex and her former boss, Paul Reeves, wind up everywhere that she and Stone are. Pat claims not to really know why they are chasing her and Stone lets it go time and time again. It got old after a while and it was just ridiculous how Stone doesn't even get to know these women before he's traipsing all over the world with them. Pat had a ton of baggage and only decided after an attempt on Stone's life to give him most of the truth. Holly Barker shows up quite a bit in this book, along with her new assistant, Millie. I was appalled at how Holly treated Millie on her job interview and thought Holly should have been sued and sent to an HR meeting on proper respect and etiquette for possible new hires. Her excuses were ridiculous and her whole demeanor in this book was off-putting to say the least. Kate and Will Lee were as complicated as ever. The snippet of news at the end was a nice touch and brought the only smile to my face during this book.

There are five or six agencies between two countries working together to find three people. All business is conducted by phone and email and everything goes off without a hitch. It's all rather spectacular really. The more I read of stone Barrington the more intrigued I become. He's probably the most interesting man in the world.

    Standard for the more recent Stone Barrington novels. This was a bit better, added a new character, but she wasn't fully developed, as has sadly been the norm for Stuart Woods lately. But, the story was the usual fast pace and with a couple main lines, it was interesting and read quickly, not much depth, also typical for his recent books. I'll still keep reading what Stuart puts out, mainly because they are free and easy to get from the library and I want to keep tabs on the main characters.

    The lead character is Stone Barrington--he is filthy rich, owns his own plane, goes after the bad guys and is a real ladies man. I, along with other reviewers, gave it 4 stars because I can't make a 1/2 star so I rounded up to 4. As this is the 33rd in the series, most of the characters are the same except the bad guys. I learn about wine that I will never be able to afford and whiskeys which I don't enjoy. The travel is enjoyable to read about but the suspense doesn't last long enough for me.

    I have read all the Stone Barrington books right through this one. And while I have enjoyed reading them I am almost always disappointed by the rather mundane endings. This book certainly fell into that category. There were no surprises, no suspense, no mystery of any kind in the ending of this book. That's why almost all of the Barrington books only get a 3-star review from me. I'll keep reading them for now, but my expectations toward the end of the book remain low.

    Another episode in the life of Stone Barrington. I find them very entertaining and enjoyable. This one had a lot of aviation in it; fun stuff, but solo over the Atlantic? Plot involves his new lady love’s unstable, criminal ex-boyfriend and some international hot action with an imaginary Arab country. Characters were believable Dino. However, Dino as PC doesn't act like NYPD Blue. Lots of micromanaging by the characters. Fun stuff. Another episode in the life of Stone Barrington. I find them very entertaining and enjoyable.

    I love Stone Barrington! I've read all of the series up through this one and have enjoyed every one of them. They are entertaining, easy reads. I compare Stuart Woods a little bit to James Patterson.... Fast paced, short chapters, can't put the book down. I love the pickles Stone always seens to get roped into...usually by an attractive lady that he ends up bedding. Overall I highly recommend reading all the Barrington books starting at the beginning, New York Dead I believe! I love Stone Barrington!

    Stuart Woods always writes a fun, fast read. Highly entertaining, without a lot of fiber. What I most enjoy about his Stone Barrington novels is the chance to dream the rich and famous lifestyle. Stone has all the toys, all the women, and more than enough adventures. Woods is the Krispy Kreme of action and suspense novels!

    My favorite Stone book yet!! I think this is my favorite Stone Barrington book yet. I am going back and catching a couple I missed in the middle here and I really enjoyed this one. Sometimes I feel like the Barrington books follow the same pattern but this one seemed different, which is why it appealed to me so much. It was a quick summer read for me.
