Lawyer and private investigator Stone Barrington has never wanted for female company, but even he concedes he has too much on his plate: three lovers and three would-be companions, including his unbalanced ex-wife, Dolce. Stone is taken with beautiful actress Carrie Cox the moment he sets eyes on her at Elaine's, and he agrees to help her secure the lead in a Broadway play and fend off the lascivious director. Carrie's problems don't end there, but Stone turns to a case of his own. A wealthy gallery owner wants Stone to find a way to separate his daughter from her disreputable artist boyfriend, Derek. When Stone learns that Derek is not only a swindler but also a drug dealer, he is drawn into an elaborate police sting operation, and into bed with an undercover officer and her girlfriend.

Review by Richard Paul (Seattle Public Library)
Well folk's, Stuart Woods, is at it again! This is the third story, where he has thrown all caution aside and not only intro's new caracters but increased the capactity of the constants. The 1st third of the book it seems that Stuart lost it when a: get the bad guy trap was seemingly reused. Not so! More intro's of caracter. So now all of us have caracters floating around out there in three different parts of the U.S. And an invisable man. Now Stone did his absolute best to prove he is in fact, thousands of years old. After all it kept Dino and the others in stitches. They saved the teenage girl, caught the bad guys'But!, Where is the money? Well gee thanks: Mr. Woods. I hope some of this comes to light soon. All of those Caracters come together, in the same state of America, methinks there will be a big hole in the ground. It is a good read friends. Thanks for the work Stuart!

Far too much sex - far too little content

The most implausible dribble I've come across! (and I read vampire fiction) Completely predictable and just in poor taste.

The arrogant author's note at the end makes me nauseous!
