9780061711923: Dirt (Stone Barrington Novels)

Coming hot on the heels of his bestsellers 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 suddenly finds the tables have turned: she is the unwitting victim of an anonymous gossipmonger who is faxing national opinion makers an outrageous scandal sheet revealing the details of her ongoing indiscretions with a well-known business tycoon.

So Amanda enlists the help of New York lawyer and investigator Stone Barrington to learn the identity of the faxer. The problem is, everybody is a suspect in the world of tabloid journalism. As the faxes grow more scathing and begin to expose the peccadilloes of not only Amanda but other members of the gossip community, Barrington winds up with more leads than he can handle and an employer who is about to take matters dangerously into her own hands. The world of gossip has been turned on its head, and it becomes clear to Stone that even the most respected members of the social scene will stop at nothing – even murder – to clear their names.

Irresistible as only good gossip can be, Dirt is a mesmerizing tale of betrayal and murder set against a backdrop of the rapid-fire Manhattan tabloid business and is filled with the twists and turns that have made Stuart Woods’ novels international hits.

Product Description:

Gossip columnist Amanda Dart finds the tables have turned - she has become the victim of an anonymous gossipmonger who is faxing details of her indiscretions to national opinion-makers. Amanda enlists the help of New York lawyer Stone Barrington to learn the identity of the faxer.

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 (mine was probably out of toner or paper). 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.
