Description

In Swimming to Catalina, ex-cop-turned-Manhattan-attorney and investigator Stone Barrington is back, still smarting from his sudden breakup with brilliant, beautiful magazine writer Arrington Carrington, who has left him to marry Hollywood's hottest male star, Vance Calder. Then Calder calls Stone for help: Arrington has vanished without a trace, and Calder, refusing to call the police, wants Stone to find her. Arriving in L.A. with little to go on, Stone soon finds himself in the deepest kind of trouble as he nearly drowns in a sea of lost leads and empty clues that take him from Bel Air to Malibu to Rodeo Drive. In a town where the sharks drive Bentleys and no one can be trusted, Stone must use all his wits to find Arrington and keep his head above water ... without losing it.

Drenched in Hollywood glitz and glamour, and filled with the dizzying plot twists and turns that have made his novels New York Times bestsellers and international sensations, Swimming to Catalina is Stuart Woods' fastest paced, most riveting, and unabashedly fun thriller.

      • content:

        March 30, 1998
        Formerly a cop and now a lawyer, Stone Barrington is plummeting to the bottom of the ocean with an anchor chained to his waist at the start of Woods's 17th novel (after Dead in the Water, 1997), a smoothly presented if slight thriller that ambles pleasurably through a kidnapping plot involving Barrington's ex-lover (improbably named Arrington). Her husband, actor Vance Calder, flies Barrington out to Hollywood to help find her. In L.A., Barrington goes from flavor-of-the-minute to persona non grata in less time than it takes a flop to disappear from a multiplex. Naturally he's suspicious, so he starts investigating on his own and finds links aplenty among Calder, a mobster named Onofrio Ippolito (head of the Safe Harbor Bank) and labor fixer David Sturmach. The plot moves quickly and is full of dialogue and genial if unsurprising gibes at self-centered stars. Unsurprising is the key word here. Neither the mystery nor the romantic subplot contributes much in the way of suspense to this pleasant, inoffensive airplane read. $250,000 ad/promo; BOMC alternate. (May) FYI: HarperPaperbacks is issuing a paper edition of Dead in the Water simultaneously with Swimming to Catalina.

      • content: Bestselling author Woods brings back former NYPD detective turned lawyer Stone Barrington. He's flown to California on Centurion Studio's private jet to find the wife of heart-throb star Vance Calder. Most of Woods's characters are name-dropping beautiful people whom Ferrone smoothly portrays. His voice is so cool for both Stone and Vance, while his subtle vocal changes have the women sounding sultry as they seduce or are seduced. Stone's frequent sexual liaisons are detailed, but not overstated. Ferrone is equally convincing as the gruff bad guys--some dumb, all venomous. Glitter and greed abound in this more entertaining than mysterious cavort on the Hollywood scene. R.N. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
