Watched these boxed sets…

Happy New Year!


book: Stuart Woods “The Short Forever”

December 31, 2009

Yes, yet another Stuart Woods book featuring Stone Barrington. I’m kind of running out of things to say about these books because they are fairly similar to each other – fast-paced, easy to read, cop/thriller with good strong characters.

This time we see Stone travel to London and become slowly involved in crime and international espionage.

There are a lot of English cliches in this book for the US audience and for no apparent reason lots of little details of how to get from ‘A’ to ‘B’ which don’t add anything to the plot but just made me imagine the author taking notes during his research.

So, there it is.  Another Stone Barrington story which I very much enjoyed and also the last book of the year!
