Short Forever

by Stuart Woods

December 4, 2002 | Hardcover

Short Forever is rated 5 out of 5 by 2.
Cop-turned-investigator Stone Barrington returns in his eighth adventure, following his biggest New York Times bestseller yet, last season's Cold Paradise. In The Short Forever, the unflappable Stone comes face to face with two men whose lives are wrapped in shadows and lies -- and who both still feel a sting of betrayal they can never forget.

Stone's new client, John Bartholomew, asks him to fly to London in search of a young woman whom he suspects has taken up with a mysterious character. Bartholomew asks Stone to see what he can find to discredit the man, Cabot, which seems a simple enough task, and Stone is eager to spend time in London and with his friend Sarah Buckminster. What Stone finds is more bizarre than he had expected. The woman in question isn't related to Bartholomew in quite the way he had implied. And it appears that Bartholomew and Cabot, who once worked together on a secretive assignment, now have very different versions of what went wrong. When Stone himself is implicated in a shocking double murder, he and his partner, Dino, know they have stepped into a strange case unlike any other.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sensational OK, not like many other people I'm not gonna tell you a synopsis of the story which you can read at the library, or chapters but I gonna actually give you a review. All I can say is, OMG I loved this book. Depending on your age because there are some scenes where people get nude and he puts alot of detail in it, I recommend this to anyone. This book contains very little action but the concept of the whole plot is just amazing. The book takes place in London and since I have been to London myself, I understand what the character is talking about. If you travel quite a bit like me I would say read this book right away. On the first night I started reading this I couldn't put it down, AT ALL. I must have read at least half of the book. I don't know what got me hooked onto it so easily but I say you go out to the nearest library or bookstore and buy this book. Seeya till my next review!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Suave, Sophisticated Mystery with a Bond-ish Hero In The Short Forever by Stuart Woods, retired homicide detective-turned-PI Stone Barrington--a cross between James Bond and Spenser--is sent on what might be a 'wild goose chase'. His assignment: to find his mysterious new client's missing niece who is somewhere in London. Stone leaves the US and the niece, Erica Burroughs, is found rather quickly. But then the plot thickens. She has no uncle. Stone is stumped. He soon finds himself embroiled in a puzzling case, where most of the pieces don't add up. Just who is his client John Bartholomew? And what does he want with Erica and her drug-smuggling boyfriend Lance Cabot? Erica introduces the dashing detective to her sister Monica, and things heat up. And the appearance of two former lovers unsettles Stone, especially when old flame Sarah Buckminster hosts a weekend get-together with her fiancé James and invites Erica, Monica, Lance and Stone. But fun and games turns swiftly into tragedy as a boating accident claims a life. Then more bodies turn up and Stone is thrown headfirst into an international dilemma. Best Selling author Stuart Woods delves deep into his characters, giving them plausible backgrounds and emotions. He creates means, motive and opportunity for each suspect and gives you just the right mix of action, suspense and romance. This page-turner contains every element that makes an excellent suspense and Woods drives home the twists at every possible corner. If you're looking for a good read, with interesting, quirky and multi-faceted characters and tons of fast-paced action, pick up a copy of The Short Forever. Kudos, Mr. Woods! ~Cheryl Kaye Tardif, Canadian suspense author
