      Short Straw
Ed Eagle, Santa Fe s pre eminent trial lawyer, first introduced in Woods s earlier novel, Santa Fe Rules, finds himself in extreme domestic difficulties On the morning of his fiftieth birthday, as he is about to open his elegant new law offices, Eagle learns that he is in the sort of trouble usually reserved for his unluckiest clients.Quickly marshalling his resources, which include two private detectives, an accused murderer and an ace ex IRS agent, he begins a campaign to save his law practice, his wealth, his reputation and his self respect from the astonishing actions of the person closest to him.The action takes his team across the southwest, deep into parts of Mexico where no one can be trusted, least of all the police, and through the lush, southern California world of the very, very wealthy, from the delights of exclusive spas and secluded hotels to the ever present dangers of the U.S Mexican border, pitted against a wily and completely ruthless adversary Full of double crosses and unexpected twists, Ed Eagle s life is one of heightened risks and pleasures.

    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 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 pretty good Interestingly the main charachter was not the center of the story Good action and a fast read I would give this a 3.5 star but knowcked it down to 2 stars because I was a bit put off by the authors notes at the end I thought he was quite rude and based on that will likely not read another of his books if I have to pay for it I m a firm believer of voting with my dollars His notes in summary said don t snail nail me, I won t reply, don t send me book ideas I ll This book was pretty good Interestingly the main charachter was not the center of the story Good action and a fast read I would give this a 3.5 star but knowcked it down to 2 stars because I was a bit put off by the authors notes at the end I thought he was quite rude and based on that will likely not read another of his books if I have to pay for it I m a firm believe...

    The fact is, I think I drew the short straw It is not the best book I ve ever read, there was a bit too much Strong sexual content I thought I figured the ending out but it turned out I was way off I think mine idea would have been better, as the ending was week There where some good and i...

    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.

    This is a very shallow book Reading it was like watching a movie on fast forward There are no backstories, no pauses for internal dialogue, no descriptions of any kind You hardly know the characters at all The protagonist is a mostly oblivious attorney who marries a felon and is shocked when she steals from him To find her he hires two P.I s Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dummer who make Barney Fife look like James Bond...

    I have not finished this book but it won t take long It is a rollicking tale of colour ful characters but completely lacking in any depth Things happen to the characters that would not happen in real life Crucial explanatory facts are glossed over or missing entirely to give some credence to the plot I appreciate that Mr Woods is writing populist literature, but there comes a time when some context and depth to the plot is required It is generally not believeable Funny, though I hope my I have not finished this book but it won t take long It is a rollicking tale of colour ful characters but completely lacking in any depth Things happen to the characters that would not happen in real life Crucial explanatory facts are glossed over or missing entirely to give some credence to the plot I appreciate that Mr Woods is writing populist literature, but there comes a time when some context and depth to...
