Summary:

Everyone is always telling Stone Barrington that he's too smart to be a cop, but it's pure luck that places him on the streets in the dead of night, just in time to witness the horrifying incident that turns his life inside out. Suddenly he is on the front page of every New York newspaper, and his life is hopelessly entwined in the increasingly shocking life (and perhaps death) of Sasha Nijinsky, the country's hottest and most beautiful television anchorwoman. No matter where he turns, the case is waiting for him, haunting his nights and turning his days into a living hell. Stone finds himself caught in a perilous web of unspeakable crimes, dangerous friends, and sexual depravity that has throughout it one common thread: Sasha.

    Very good! Always enjoyed books by Stuart Woods. His books on Stone Barrington are excellent. Full of humour with lots of action as well. Looking forward for more of Stone Barrington and adventures.

    I've completed about 20 Stone Barrington books so far and really enjoyed going back to the beginning and seeing how it all started, especially Stone's and Geno's friendship.

    This is my first Stone Barrington book and I enjoyed the storyline quite a bit. I was not impressed with the narrator and feel like I would have enjoyed the book more with a different narrator. I could barely distinguish between characters which is what makes a good narrator imho. I will get one or two more in this series to give it a good chance though.

    Love Stone Barrington. Had listened to most of the series, but needed something to listen to on a trip, so I decided to start at the beginning. I had not listened to the beginning of his story, so we enjoyed it and are listening to book 2 in this series. Found the narrator good, but am used to Tony Roberts and his voices, which is unfair to this narrator. Will continue with early books til I get to where I started.

    I went back to the beginning after reading a later Stone Barrington book. This first in the series helped me set the stage in my mind for the later books and had an unexpected ending, which I like. I intend to read the entire series in order now. Although Tony Roberts narrates all subsequent books the narrator of this one did a good job.
