APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
With their their exotic settings, sexy shenanigans, and mile-a-minute adventures, it’s no surprise that Stuart Woods’ Stone Barrington thrillers are big bestsellers. Cracking open Contraband is like leaping into a book version of Magnum, P.I., aka a bunch of fun. This time around, Barrington’s lounging on a yacht in Florida before he’s drawn into a case involving mysterious packages that are going missing and a string of murders, not to mention a voluptuous rescue diver and a lusty businesswoman. Whether Barrington’s between the sheets or chasing a suspect, Woods keeps us eagerly flipping pages. He’s truly perfected the balance between bawdy and suspenseful.

Slipping into mediocrity
The writing has become stilted, and the sex overdone.
Far from his best
I have read almost every Stuart Woods book and this is without question the worst written book he has done. Story goes in many directions and in the end it goes nowhere.
