Bel-Air Dead (Stone Barrington)

A book by Stuart Woods

< read all 1 reviews

A superb novel with a great plot, suspense, and likable characters

  • May 20, 2011
This Stone Barrington novel is superb, as is the plot, pacing, and characters. Most enjoyable is Woods' crisp frequently humorous language. Both good and bad persons from previous Woods novels appear, which is delightful for those who read about them previously, but even people who meet them here for the first time, will enjoy the experience.

Stone decides to help his now very rich ex-girl friend who wants to keep a movie company intake. Her now deceased husband owned a large share in the business. There are about two dozen share holders. A vicious wealthy crook wants to buy all the shares, destroy the film company and build a hotel. He even kills people who do not sell him their shares.

About this book


Woods's dizzyingly paced 20th Stone Barrington novel (after Strategic Moves) takes the New York attorney to Los Angeles to represent recent widow Arrington Calder, his sometime lover, in her attempts to keep control of Centurion Studios. Barrington undertakes a rapid realignment of Calder's holdings while forming alliances and buying shares to thwart the efforts of Prince Investment's Terry Prince, who wants the prime Bel-Air acreage the studio occupies. The murder of stockholder Jennifer Harris is only the first indication of how rough Prince plays. With longtime pal Dino Bacchetti at his side as well as the mighty resources of Mike Freeman's Strategic Services and Bill Eggers's law firm Woodman & Weld, Barrington matches financial wits with the arrogant Prince. There's cross-pollination with Woods's Ed Eagle series (Santa Fe Edge, etc.) as one of Eagle's nemeses plays a surprising role. Series fans will find Barrington as shrewd, sexy, and glib as ever. (Apr.)
