My rating: 2 of 5 stars
I received the book for free through Goodreads First Reads for review. It was an “uncorrected proof”, so your experience might be different.
I have read the previous 33 in the Stone Barrington series, most of which I gave 3 star reviews. I have also read a lot of his other novels, and a lot of the characters turn up in each.
There was a lot of action, and glimpses into the lives of the rich and famous, as usual, but there didn’t seem to be any coherence to the plot.
Also, I was expecting more of the recent characters, but this was more like an introduction to a new fork in the series. Maybe the current line has reached the end.
It was still a decent read, just not what I was expecting. If you are new to the Stone Barrington series, you will probably have a better experience.
If you have read, or do read this novel, let me know what you think.
My star ratings are the same as those at Goodreads.com:
1 Star: Did not like it (maybe even didn’t finish)
2 Star: It was OK
3 Star: I liked it
4 Star: I really liked it
5 Star: It was amazing
