9780061711923: Dirt (Stone Barrington)

Feared and loathed for her poison pen and ice queen persona, Amanda Dart has made her share of enemies. Then the tables are turned. An anonymous gossipmonger is faxing Amanda's personal and private peccadilloes to anyone who can read. Desperate to save her reputation, she enlists the help of New York lawyer and private investigator Stone Barrington to learn the identity of the faxer.

But the faxes don't stop. In fact, they get worse. And Stone winds up with more leads than one man can handle, until Amanda takes matters dangerously into her own hands and turns the world of gossip on its head. As the circle of suspects shrinks, Stone discovers that even the most respected members of the social scene will stop at nothing—even homicide—to clear their sullied names.

Review:

Woods seems to write smooth and solid thrillers as fast as most of us read them. Cop-turned-lawyer Stone Barrington of New York Dead returns with all his street smarts intact in this story about a powerful gossipmonger who has the tables turned when dirty pictures of her start appearing on fax machines across the country. The characters are so rich, famous, and upscale that you might get a nosebleed, but Woods has a light, deft touch that makes the book hard to resist.

From the Back Cover:

UNDER THE WHISPERS, SECRETS, AND SCANDAL, THERE'S NOTHING BUT DIRT

Desperate to save her reputation, she enlists the help of New York lawyer and private investigator Stone Barrington to learn the identity of the faxer. And everyone in the world of tabloid journalism becomes a suspect.

But the faxes don't stop. In fact, they get worse. And Stone winds up with more leads than one man can handle, until Amanda takes matters dangerously into her own hands and turns the world of gossip on its head. As the circle of suspects shrinks, Stone discovers that even the most respected members of the social scene will stop at nothing -- even homicide -- to clear their sullied names, in this mesmerizing tale of betrayal, murder, and tabloid terror.

Coming on the heels of his bestselling Choke and Imperfect Strangers, Stuart Woods brings back one of his best-loved characters, Stone Barrington, in a fast-paced roller-coaster ride through the murderous world of high-profile celebrity gossip. Feared and disliked for both her poison pen and ice-queen persona, gossip columnist Amanda Dart finds the tables have turned. Someone is faxing an outrageous scandal sheet revealing the details of Amanda s ongoing indiscretions with a famous takeover artist to national opinion makers. Amanda enlists the help of New York lawyer-investigator Stone Barrington to learn the identity of the faxer. Everybody is a suspect in the world of tabloid journalism.
