I liked this Audiobook CD by Woods, Stuart. I like this author and his style. It is too violent and sexual for children to listen to. This is a murder mystery sleuthing story. The twists and turns in the story keep you interested. There is two stories in this book. One story is Stone Barrington having Errington as a sometimes lover and as a long term client. Stone has not met his son yet. His son thinks Lance is his father. Peter, Stone's son is about 12 years old. Stone is assisting the possible takeover of the movie studio he trying to prevent on his client's behalf. This about one year before they marry each other and she is murdered. In this book, Errington has been widowed about one year since Lance died. She is just starting her big Virginia house she is building. The other story is murders of people in the way of the movie studio takeover. The police are trying to catch whoever is doing this. Dino is helping the police while he is visiting with Stone. The two stories become tangled together.

It started simply. Stone Barrington is asked by Arrington Calder, the extremely wealthy and young widow of a former Hollywood star to go to California to vote her shares in Centurion Studios. The object? To ensure its Board turns down a takeover bid for its valuable land in Bel-Air. Terry Prince, the land developer in question appears to have drug connections in South America and, when Stone begins to upset his plans, people end up dead. It's uncertain who's responsible though. Barrington is up as he becomes a partner in Woodman and Weld, but down as this case moves toward an uncertain conclusion. Many of the old gang make appearances: Dino, Ed Eagle, Rick Barron now in his 90s and Chair of the Board at Centurion, Jim Long, Barbara Eagle, and a mysterious young woman with a cold! Feels like a family reunion. Get set for some big money. I wish I could be invited to even one of those parties.

One of Woods' worst efforts. He must've mailed it in and his publishers don't seem to do much editing.
Even worse was "Son of Stone" Maybe his dna has given out or he's drinking too much of the Knob Creek whiskey he touts.

This character has fallen so far that I couldn't wait to finish this trash. Stuart Woods used to care, but he clearly doesn't anymore unless you enjoy spoiled Barrington who earns millions for nothing and can sleep with whomever, even lesbians if he sets his mind to it. 1 of 10 stars
