Shoot First

In the latest nonstop adventure from #1 New York Times bestselling author Stuart Woods, Stone Barrington must defend a woman whose business--and life--are under threat.

Stone Barrington is enjoying a round of golf in Key West when the game is violently interrupted--and it seems as if the target of the disturbance may have been one of his playing companions, the brilliant businesswoman behind a software startup on the cutting edge of technology. Soon, it becomes clear that this incident is only the first thrust in a deadly scheme to push the beautiful young woman out of the way and put her company's valuable secrets up for grabs.

From the sun-soaked Florida shores to an idyllic English country retreat, Stone embarks on a quest to protect his lovely new companion while searching for the mastermind behind the plot against her. But he may find that her enemy is far more resourceful--and dangerous--than he could have anticipated.

Abrupt ending3 star

The story was good but the ending was weird and abrupt. I think Mr Woods is getting lazy and taking his readers for granted. 35

Stoned3 star

I think he’s running out of stuff for Stone to buy..... Thus the democratic politics in the next book?? 35


Cool5 star

Sounds Interesting! 55


Shoot First3 star

Mr Woods is becoming way too predictable. Much of the same. Maybe a bit long in the tooth, or retire Stone and come up with something new. Time to reinvent yourself, Mr Woods. 35

Shoot First3 star

The author continues his pat form. 368 pages long with perhaps 50 being new original thought. The balance is the typical rehash of past storylines. 35
