I have been reading the Stone Barrington series since the first one was published. I have accepted them for what they are which is a quick, light weight read good for a day at the pool. Unfortunately this latest attempt does not belong at the pool but more like in the pool. This does not even qualify as a "mystery" as there is no mystery about the identity or motive behind the murder that occurs. In addition the murder occurs more than half way through the book. THe story line (such as it is) revolves around Stone getting to know the son that he fathered with Arrington Calder 16 years before. And what a son he is! Perfection in every way! Smart, innovative, well-mannered, polite, a budding genius who has filmed and edited his first film at age 16. Peter (the son) is so perfect that he made me want to reach for a barf bag.

There is however one major fault with both Peter and Stone and that is there absolute lack of any real human emotion from either one of them. When the murder occurs neither one of them seems to spend any time at all grieving for the deceased. They just pick themselves off, dust themselves off and get along with the important matters such as the reading of the will and getting Peter accepted into the Yale Drama School.

If this is what Mr. Woods is turning out nowadays and calling it writing then perhaps he needs to consider retirement as his next option. Mr. Woods and his editor and publisher need to hang their collective heads in shame over this one.

This seemed to be just a narration of a month or so in the life of the super, super rich where dad can spend any amount of money and change legal documents, get his son into Yale for the right price, etc. There was no plot to speak of, no snappy dialog with Dino, no nothing. I always look forward to the next installment of Stone Barrington's life but this is just boring and a total waste of money.

As an avid reader of Stuart Woods since "Chiefs" in 1981, I was very disappointed in this book. It was complete garbage from the start. Rich parents, spoiled kid, everthing available, no parental compassion, etc. My disappointment also extends to Amazon for not offering this as a $.99 kindle special, although even that would have been an overcharge. I can only wait to see if Woods' next book resumes to the quality that we expect from him.

Over the years, I have read Stuart Woods and enjoyed his novels, including the Stone Barrington Series. Just one man's opinion, but I think Mr. Woods is running out of story ideas. He has flogged the Barrington horse too long and the horse is tired. This latest book is a major disappointment - a ho hum, slow moving, uninteresting story about too-perfect rich people going through life. He gets a wife, and gets a son, who is so scary-smart he should run for President at the age of 18 (even though he's too young - he's already good at getting forged documents from his above-the-law, mega-lawyer dad!). There is no mystery, the plot is predictable, and I never reached a level of high interest - it took me over 2 weeks to read the book because I had no compelling desire to get back to it. Unlike Lee Child's books, which continue to be page turners, Woods seems to have run out of gas. Maybe it's time for Stone Barrington to retire and Dino to start earning his money in the Police Dept. instead of galavanting around the countryside on Stone's dime!

As a long time fan of Stuart Woods, I was excited to see the plot of this book turn to his first love, Arrington, and Stone's unacknowledged son, Peter. Stone would finally have a chance to meet and interact with his son - and have a second chance at the happiness he missed 16 years before when Arrington's head was turned by Vance Calder, a major movie star. Things don't work out as planned, although money and influence are exerted on every page to make things perfect for son Peter. Potential challenges which would allow the characters to strive and overcome obstacles are absent. Instead of letting us experience grief and loss with them, Woods blows past significant loss with nary a tear being shed. A pesky reporter gets a lot of attention for her prying expose of Stone's relationship with his son, but inexplicably this subplot fizzles out. An intriguing subplot about a death at the school which is the setting of son Peter's first film is hinted at and then left unexplored. The reader knows "who done it" from the first finding of the body. Plot, characters, and motivation are poorly done. A lazy effort and not fair to his fans, who paid top dollar only to read a disappointing book.
Trash
If I could rank less than one star I would. Simply put, this book was merely a paycheck for Stuart Woods. It's utter crap and servers to introduce several new characters that I am sure will get spin off books. Woods' writing has declined year after year and it seems like he has ceased putting any effort into it. There is no emotion in this book. Just a lot of polite conversation with everything wrapping up nicely. A major character is murdered, the killer killed, an abortion, wedding, Stone becoming a father and of course millions and billions in effortless deals and all done with no emotion whatsoever. But there is lots and lots of polite (always very polite) conversation.

I love Woods' characters and really liked his early books. Everytime I read one of his books now I tell myself that I will never buy another one. Then comes the day that I'm bored with nothing else to read and I download the latest to Kindle and remember how awful Woods has become. Son of Stone surpasses any previous awfulness. It was probably written in an afternoon simply for the paycheck.
