Description
With his previous audiobook, Dark Harbor, Stuart Woods proved once more that he is the master of the offbeat thriller. Now he outdoes himself with FRESH DISASTERS, the newest edition of the Stone Barrington series.Stone embarks on his most dangerous adventure yet when a chance encounter with the wrong man sends him straight into the heart of New York's Mafia underworld. It starts as just another late night at Elaine's and ends with Stone forced to deal, yet again, with the hapless Herbie Fisher, the bane of his existence. Stone finds that what should have been a throwaway case instead leads right to a powerful mob boss with a notoriously bad temper and long reach. Fortunately for Stone, the twists of the case also take a more congenial turn–sending a little romance his way, and giving him another opportunity to try to rescue a beautiful woman distress. But as the danger deepens, Stone is left to wonder if he can disentangle himself from this lawless mess before he winds up–as his friend Dino likes to put it–"at the bottom of Sheepshead Bay with a concrete block up his ass."With the often hilarious action, razor-sharp characters, and crackling dialogue that are his hallmarks, FRESH DISASTERS is Stuart Woods at the pleasurable height of his storytelling powers.

fullDescription
With his previous audiobook, Dark Harbor, Stuart Woods proved once more that he is the master of the offbeat thriller. Now he outdoes himself with FRESH DISASTERS, the newest edition of the Stone Barrington series.

Stone embarks on his most dangerous adventure yet when a chance encounter with the wrong man sends him straight into the heart of New York's Mafia underworld. It starts as just another late night at Elaine's and ends with Stone forced to deal, yet again, with the hapless Herbie Fisher, the bane of his existence. Stone finds that what should have been a throwaway case instead leads right to a powerful mob boss with a notoriously bad temper and long reach. Fortunately for Stone, the twists of the case also take a more congenial turn–sending a little romance his way, and giving him another opportunity to try to rescue a beautiful woman distress. But as the danger deepens, Stone is left to wonder if he can disentangle himself from this lawless mess before he winds up–as his friend Dino likes to put it–"at the bottom of Sheepshead Bay with a concrete block up his ass."
With the often hilarious action, razor-sharp characters, and crackling dialogue that are his hallmarks, FRESH DISASTERS is Stuart Woods at the pleasurable height of his storytelling powers.

        January 15, 2007
        Smooth-talking New York lawyer Stone Barrington, along with his sidekick, NYPD detective Dino Bacchetti, get dragged into an impossible case in Stone's entertaining 13th outing (after Dark Harbor
        ). Stone's bosses at the high-class law firm of Woodman and Weld want him to sue major league Mafia don Carmine Dattila for beating up a character from earlier Stone adventures, the hapless Herbie Fisher. It's all pretty much good fun—the snappy repartee, hot sex, dinner at Elaine's, comedic Mafia hoodlums with names like Sammy Tools, Johnny Pop and Dattila the Hun—until the tale turns darker with the introduction of a psychotic sculptor, Devlin Daltry, who's the ex-boyfriend of Stone's current flame, Celia Cox, a tall, fabulously beautiful masseuse. Woods delivers few surprises, but there are plenty of laughs as the pages speed by. Series regulars and newcomers alike will be perfectly satisfied.
