あらすじ・解説

Stone Barrington enters the cutthroat fray of politics in the stunning thriller from the New York Times best-selling author.

Stone Barrington has traveled to Los Angeles for the Democratic National Convention and finds that the political scene has been shaken up. First Lady Katherine Rule Lee is running for the party nomination, a loyal senator has died and left her seat vacant, and the Secret Service has received a credible threat toward Kate. It will take all of Stone's discretion and powers of persuasion to help arrange things for a desirable outcome.

Awful

What disappointed you about Cut and Thrust?

The book has very little real substance. If it were an authors first work it would only be published by the author.

Would you ever listen to anything by Stuart Woods again?

If he were to get back to his crime series roots.

What about Tony Roberts’s performance did you like?

Tony Roberts always give a great performance.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

I was a major dissapointment

Any additional comments?

If you enjoy reading thin stories about limousine liberals, this is the book for you.

Fantasy Land

Mr. Woods always does a good job with his wealthy characters but this time it's just too much. Too Political, too unbelievable, too bizarre. I'm a Stuart Woods fan but this time it appears he is no fan of his readers. Save your money and your credit.

A true waste of time.

Any additional comments?

A contrived plot with shallow characters. A rambling story line filled with irrelevant details. Clearly this author is paid by the number of words/pages he can fill. Not worth the listen, let alone the read.

Its a love letter to the Clintons

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Get back to writing about crime and not politics

Has Cut and Thrust turned you off from other books in this genre?

Yes, if this author continues writing about the greatness of the Democratic party

Have you listened to any of Tony Roberts’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Great performance as always

Do you think Cut and Thrust needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Please NO

The thrill is gone...

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I always wait with eager anticipation for the new Stone Barrington novel, it is like a gift every time I pressed play. This one was a box of socks and a neck tie. I don't know if Stone has grown too big and rich for me to relate to, or if it was the lack of tension, I just did not care what happened in this book. Stone used to be an exciting guy, this had all the action of a senate hearing on making blueberry waffles the official breakfast offering in the Capital Hill dining room. We went through all the motions, the characters that we love and hate were there, but it just fell flat. I can say that I hope this is the build up to something explosive - maybe it's just the first offering and the socks and tie will match the beautifully tailored suit in the next installment. Keep swinging Mr. Woods and I will keep reading! On a side note the performance was fantastic as always...

Would you ever listen to anything by Stuart Woods again?

Yes of course! I really enjoy his books! (however I could do with out the political commentary)

What does Tony Roberts bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

A certain sarcasm and whit that maybe lost in the books

Could you see Cut and Thrust being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

Oh God no - please leave it alone

Any additional comments?

This is my first review - don't know if I wold do another

Terrible Book!

What disappointed you about Cut and Thrust?

It was all politics and no plot! I don't care what side of the aisle you are on, you will not like this book. I have listened to every Stone Barrington book and this one is the last one.

Would you ever listen to anything by Stuart Woods again?

Never again!

What didn’t you like about Tony Roberts’s performance?

I liked Tony Robert's performance - it is the author that has lost his ability to write.

Becoming a formula novel

Have you listened to any of Tony Roberts’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

He is the redeeming factor.

Any additional comments?

This series is becoming a factory story series. Less excitement, and a vehicle for publishing a book a year. The depth of the earlier books in the series is lacking.

I am very forgiving, but have my limits

What would have made Cut and Thrust better?

The story is very thin. The tension is not compelling. They should have skipped this story altogether. I do not understand how this moves Stone's story forward. Ann is no Arrington and other than her connection to Kate, do not see the attraction.

What do you think your next listen will be?

A best seller - The Good Girl

Which scene was your favorite?

Did not have a favorite.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment

Stone has gun out of gas.

What would have made Cut and Thrust better?

Some bad guys

What was most disappointing about Stuart Woods’s story?

Self serving to his wealth.

Have you listened to any of Tony Roberts’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Tony is a master now and forever.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

A downward trend is evident. Stone needs to go bankrupt.

Any additional comments?

I have enjoyed Stone and Dino for a very long time. The character just got too rich to identify with. I do not enjoy writing this. I just gotta say how I feel.
