Looking for a new series?

If you need a new series of books to dive into you may want to look into the Stone Barrington books by Stuart Woods.  These books follow the story of a New Your City cop with a habit of being in the wrong place at the right time.

New York Dead by Stuart Woods.  The first book in the Stone Barrington series introduces a man who’s always told he’s too smart to be a cop.   And it’s just his luck to get pulled into a horrifying incident that ties him to wildly popular T.V. anchorwoman Sasha Nijinsky.  Stone is caught in a web of danger and crime with one common thread: Sasha.

Fast & Loose by Stuart Woods.  The 41st book in the Stone Barrington series finds Stone involved in an unfortunate boating incident off the coast of Maine.  When the other party in this misfortune are revealed to be members of a prestigious family, who share a common enemy with Stone, a unique business opportunity presents itself.  But with his skill and cunning, can Stone weather the likely explosive consequences?
