    This book was a reminder as to why I even started reading Woods books in the first place A fun read that wasn t over complicated with extra plot points, fast paced and easily found at yard sales for under a 1 a book.I had read the 3rd Ed Eagle book before I found this one but I never read any of the Stone novels in order so whatever, wasn t about to start now I ll be honest and say that I barely can recall a single thing that happened in the 3rd book so if book 3 had spoilers for books 1 and This book was a reminder as to why I even started reading Woods books in the first place A fun read that wasn t over complicated with extra plot points, fast paced and easily found at yard sales for under a 1 a book.I had read the 3rd Ed Eagle book before I found this one but I never read any of the Stone novels in order so whatever, wasn t about to start now I ll be honest and say that I barely can recall a single thing that happened in the 3rd book so if book 3 had spoilers for books 1 and or 2, I have no memory of it.This book was Classic Woods , back when he would write a book that made sense, one that he attempted to take his time with and wasn t pushing them out for money.Ed meets a woman and they don t fall in bed minutes after meeting They don t even sleep together after knowing each other a whole day In fact, she stays at his house, in a different room Poor Ed, he must just not have the same charismatic charm t...

    This was not a Stone Barrington one, but rather good just the same It made me think of a Shakespeare play with all the characters dead on the floor at the end.

    Short Straw by Stuart Woods is Ed Eagle 2I haven t read Sante Fe Rules, which is Ed Eagle 1It is sometimes difficult to find which Stuart Woods books are related, and all Stuart Woods books, with a few exceptions, are related to Stone Barrington series in some way, and I wish I had read this book before I finished Sante Fe Dead Ed Eagle 3 because in many ways 3 is the sequel to...

    Actually, I really enjoyed this one Having never read the author before, I had no idea what to expect, but the story turned out to be rather interesting It felt like a combination of John Grisham and Carl Hiaason The plot romped along with plenty of crazy twists and turns that...

    Same flaws as previous one too much awkward plot manipulation resting on assumptions that women are psychological black boxes either they are gorgeous, sexually voracious, and eager to serve or gorgeous, sexually voracious, and evil killers.

  9. Lauren says:

    What a God awful book Ridiculous plot, no character development A total waste of time I skimmed the last half just to see how it ended and even that wasn t worth my time

  10. Shelly says:

    Entertaining, but lots of fiction liberties.
