Books: Stuart Woods “Kisser”

I’ve read most, but not all, of the Stuart Woods books with the Stone Barrington character and “Kisser” is the latest paperback to feature him.  I find these books extremely easy to read, quick page-turners that throw you into a plot and keep running at pace with no slack.  They aren’t too complicated, everything is presented to you, not too much mystery or suspense – just a plot and characters interesting enough to keep you engaged and a writing style that ends each short chapter pulling the reader into the next sentence, therefore paragraph and why not just one more chapter…

In this story Stone deals with two cases – firstly a new actress in town asks for some advice which leads to an affair with Stone and requiring protection against a stalking ex-husband.  Meanwhile, Stone is given a case involving an heiress who is involved with  an artist who may be a conman.

These two cases never really overlap other than in Stone’s personal life. The usual surrounding characters all appear which adds interest for the reader who is familiar with the previous novels, and any female character that appears has to jump into bed with Stone – so really a fairly standard Stuart Woods novel.  I enjoyed it.
