Coming on the heels of his bestselling Choke, and Imperfect Strangers, Stuart Woods brings back one of his best loved characters, Stone Barrington, who most recently appears in New York Dead, in a fast paced, rollercoaster ride through the high-profile world of celebrity gossip.

Feared and disliked for both her poison pen and ice queen persona, bi-coastal gossip columnist Amanda Dart finds the tables have turned. The unwitting victim of an anonymous gossipmonger who is faxing to national opinion makers an outrageous scandal sheet revealing the details of her on-going indiscretions with a nationally known takeover artist, Amanda enlists the help of New York lawyer and investigator Stone Barrington to learn the identity of the faxer. Everybody is a suspect in the world of tabloid journalism. As the faxes grow more scathing and begin to expose the peccadilloes of not only Amanda but other members of the gossip community, Barrington winds up with more leads than he can handle, and an employer who is about to take matters dangerously into her own hands. The world of gossip is turned on its head. It becomes clear to Stone that even the most respected members of the social scene will stop at nothing - even murder - to clear their names.

Irresistible as only good gossip can be, Dirt is a mesmerising tale of betrayal and murder set against a backdrop of the fast-paced Manhattan tabloid business; it is filled with the twists and turns that have made Stuart Woods's nocels international hits.

  • “I’ve been a Stuart Woods fan since his first novel, Chiefs. He started out with loads of historical atmosphere and gobs of gothic charm. He’s hung onto that and added a real talent for tight plots. Dirt, which gives a gnat’s-eye view of the Hollywood gossip mill, has the plot, the atmosphere, and the charm. It’s also really funny…Good Woods!”

    " Another great Stone Barrington book. He's quite a character and things naturally work out for him. It's one of the principle reasons I love Stuart Woods. He provides real escapism for me and the writing is light enough to give yourself the night off to read and finish a book in two days. "

    " One chapter in and I'm already not sure about this book... "

    " This is the second in the Stone Barrington series. I like the first one well enough, but this one not so much. None of the characters is sympathetic or even interesting, including the main character. Their sleaziness is just too off-putting for me. This is a caper novel (though more deadly than usual) rather than a mystery. Several of my friends love this series, and since I usually share their taste, I will continue reading it. I hope the series grows on me as it progresses. "
