Standup Guy by Stuart Woods

Stuart Woods Standup GuyStuart Woods’ Standup Guy is a cookie cutter Stone Barrington novel complete with a new lady, a peripheral mystery, and a cameo by Holly Barker. In this installment, Woods plays off the 1978 Lufthansa heist with a fictional 1966 airport terminal heist where the culprit has died in prison. When the money begins to reappear,┬ánumerous parties ranging from relatives of the original thief to the Secret Service begin sniffing around for the money.

As always, this is a quite entertaining and a quick read. The stories don’t feel unique at this point, but Stone Barrington embodies the life about which most men can only daydream. Even so, I continue to anticipate each new release including Woods’ most recent, Carnal Curiosity, which was released April 8. Standup Guy is by no one’s interpretation an instant classic, but I was highly entertained and that is the point of reading fiction correct?
