This series piqued my curiosity when I saw someone's status about it and I remembered it was recommended to me some time ago. When I saw the library had the 1st in the series, I thought I'd give it a go. I don't think this is a series I'll be binging on.

While I love my police procedurals, this was a little too fluff for me. I need more plot and there was just too much romance and a little too much fluff. This is the same issue I've had with [author:Evanovich, Janet|14285576]'s series. I don't need heavy crime, but I need a story that I want to solve. It didn't help that I didn't care much for stone or his lady friend. That said, I found myself stuck into the story today because I wanted to know how it was going to end. I also liked the landmarks of NYC past -- including Elaine's. RIP.

One technical issue-there was no passage of time marked so it was hard to know where in time the chapters were relative to previous ones. I'm not sure whether this is an ebook bug or issue in all editions. ( )

Fast, easy read. Nothing complicated. After the victim turns out to be a society climber with aspirations on news anchor, I was afraid that it would be one of those conspiracies built around hoidy-toidy New York society and that Sherlock Holmes would appear with a briar and a funny hat. But it turned out to be a reasonable cop drama. Not everyone is portrayed in a good light but that adds to the drama in it. It was light and fun; think I'll try another. ( )

Fast, easy read. Nothing complicated or, quite frankly, redeeming in this, but just a popcorn book, if you will. Will probably read more Stone Barrington adventures in the future just for the escapism. ( )

It Was Just Luck

Everyone is always telling Stone Barrington that he's too smart to be a cop, but it's pure luck that places him on the streets in the dead of night, just in time to witness the horrifying incident that turns his life inside out.

Suddenly he is on the front page of every New York newspaper, and his life is hopelessly entwined in the increasingly shocking life (and perhaps death) of Sasha Nijinsky, the country's hottest and most beautiful television anchorwoman.

No matter where he turns, the case is waiting for him, haunting his nights and turning his days into a living hell. Stone finds himself caught in a perilous web of unspeakable crimes, dangerous friends, and sexual depravity that has throughout it one common thread: Sasha.
