Stone Barrington Reader Reviews:

Submitted by Jeri K.

Stuart Woods has created the perfect man in the Stone Barrington series. He is so perfect he becomes unbelievable after the first few books in the series but he remains a thoroughly enjoyable character. Stone leads us into a world of romance, wealth and crime along with his onetime partner and friend Dino Bacchetti. Quick and very enjoyable reads from Stuart Woods.
