Two dollar bill stuart woods
Two Dollar Bill (Stone Barrington, #11) by Stuart WoodsDecent enough Barrington, twisty suspense / entertainment!
Maybe the most obvious thing to say, especially to those like us that have read every book in Woods growing bibliography, including all the Stone Barrington series, is that this one is as predictably good as most of them. While sometimes our playboy sleuths antics are just too good to be true, his friendly band of regulars - Dino, Elaine, Lance Cabot (CIA), ex- Arrington, and a new love interest, NY ADA Tiffany Baldwin - help conspire to make $2 Bill a fun read. Even the villain, Texas con artist Billy Bob Barnstormer, who spreads around two-dollar bills (hence the title) like they were pennies, has so many aliases and concurrent schemes going on that theres rarely a dull moment. Bills attempt to cast suspicion on Stone by slaying a hooker while spending a night in Stones house didnt really generate much suspense, but the multiple identity Billy Bob keeps law enforcement and Stone hopping to even figure out whos who half the time. An appearance by Stones old lover Arrington Calder did heat up things near novels end, in a couple of ways (!), and frankly the ending was both a little surprising and satisfying.
Many feel Woods books have descended into straight formula work, though we feel the Holly Barker stories (she gets a few brief mentions herein) have a fresh feel to them. With the Barrington set running a dozen or so tales, its tough to get too creative - but then we pretty much know what has to happen anyway! Enjoy!

I cannot agree with others who have reviewed this book. I found it amateurish and I couldn't finish it as it was silly and boring. Perhaps I just didn't care for the writing style of the author. Stuart Woods Stone Barrington novels are excellent stories. I have not read one that I didn't like.
Even though he's hazy about the reasons Stone Barrington is always fun for an outing--lots of New York color, a hero who isn't terribly bright and manages to get into a lot of scrapes as a result. How did a lifelong New Yorker, and a lawyer and ex-cop to boot, end up so dangerously naive? Stuart Woods was born in Manchester, Georgia on January 9, He received a B.
