A brand-new page-turning Stone Barrington novel from the perennially entertaining New York Times-bestselling author.

It seems like just another quiet night at Elaine's. Stone Barrington and his former cop partner, Dino, are enjoying some pasta when in walks former client and all around sad sack Herbie Fisher...with a briefcase containing $14 million in cash.

Herbie claims to have won the money on a lucky lotto ticket, but he also says he needs a lawyer-and after a single gunshot breaks the window above his head and sends diners scrambling, Stone and Dino suspect Herbie might need a bodyguard and a private investigator, too.

    " Stuart Woods still a favorite after so many years. Great book! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura | 2/8/2014

    " Lucid Intervals was a well written mystery. Kept you guessing on the conclusion to the very end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pam | 2/6/2014

    " I have been reading this series of Stone Barrington books for SOOOO many years. Have never missed one, read them all in order! A quick read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Suzsmart | 2/1/2014

    " Fun easy read, especially when you follow the series! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Derk | 1/29/2014

    " Another routine book by Woods. The plot doesn't hold together, the characters are superficial, and the reading is quick. I don't know why I keep reading him. My memory is that his earlier books were better, so maybe I keep reading him by habit. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mardel Fehrenbach | 1/29/2014

    " I honestly cannot say that Stuart Woods is a better writer than James Patterson, but I enjoy his books more. Or perhaps I just enjoy the Stone Barrington novels. They are easy enjoyable reads and Lucid Intervals was no exception. The books are not complex or heavy on plot. There tend to be a lot of dangling ends in the story, but they move quickly and are not particularly violent. I will also admit that I just like the character of Stone Barrington, not because I would necessarily like him in real life, but because he appreciates a good suit and understands the details of of fit and tailoring and I have a bit of a weakness for a man who likes a good suit and a good bourbon. Even though I certainly understand the appeal of a man who can be both a little polished and rough around the edges, and I am certainly no prude, the women in the novel continue to be mostly vehicles for sex, with very little development rather than their availability to jump into bed and although the sex scenes in this book are not graphic they seem to be increasingly a substitute for plot. Unfortunately the main character, like the book, has slipped into a kind of mid-life hollowness where he is still coasting by on looks and his delusions and pretensions, unaware that the promise of his youth has slipped away and failed to gain substance. I have a couple more of these books. They will be perfectly good for riding on the exercise bike, which I desperately need to resume, and where I prefer mindless entertainment that merely keeps me pedaling and turning the pages. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Connie Becerra | 1/24/2014

    " This is my first "Stone Barrington" novel, written by Stuart Woods, that I have read. Not sure I'm hooked yet on the characters, but will read another one to see. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emily | 1/19/2014

    " I really enjoyed this one. The plot kept my attention and had a few surprises at the end. Some characters from past novels came into play and I enjoyed how Woods brought them back into the mix. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michael crage | 1/19/2014

    " This is one of many books of the Stone Barrington series. They all are fast paced, well-written adventure mysteries. Stone spends a lot of time in bed with various women in the different books, but they aren't lurid the they don't make the books unreadable. I recommend any book written by Stuart Woods. You will enjoy it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Trudy Hardy | 1/16/2014

    " Very good story...worth reading. Love Stone Barrington caracter! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Robert | 10/16/2013

    " I usually enjoy Stone Barrington novels as an escape fun read. This one was disappointing even by those minimal standards. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wendy | 9/23/2013

    " Such a fun book to read. I love Herbie!! This is a book to enjoy because the characters are all such likable "characters" "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elizabeth | 9/13/2013

    " Typical Stuart Woods - light and quick read and enough of a story to keep your interest! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary Jane | 7/26/2013

    " "Kisser" was better, but I still enjoyed this one. Stuart Woods' books are always entertaining. Kimberly will be happy to have 2 more to add to her stockpile! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Don Andrews | 7/16/2013

    " always something happening "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Courtney | 2/1/2013

    " Probably more like 3.5 stars but this one was finally better than some of the last ones and made me chuckle a couple of times. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Judy | 12/9/2012

    " Another good Stone Barrington romp. Trashy, fun, and a good substitute for an evening that might otherwise have been spent on mindless TV. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Denise | 11/11/2012

    " Omg what a smarmy, pithy, horribly-written little novel this is. I had to stop reading it, which I almost never do. Terrible. Take this author off your to-read list. I can write better than this - someone hook me up with a publisher! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Daniel | 7/27/2012

    " Stone should weigh about 300 pounds with all the rich food he eats. He certainly will have liver problems with all that he drinks "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tim | 6/25/2012

    " Partly through this novel, one begins to wonder if Stone Barrington has been played out. He has. Even the good ending does not save the rest of this novel from being too long and predictable. The only surprise is Herbie contributes something positive for a change. 4 of 10 stars "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michelle | 5/22/2012

    " Very typical Woods this one was a stone barrington novel, you either love him as a protagonist or hate him i like him. Light entertaining reading with a good story line. will keep on coming back for more. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nancy | 2/19/2012

    " Nancy 5 stars; Ron 5 stars "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sara Russo | 1/4/2012

    " Very easy read, and I actually did not figure out the ending. I can usually determine who was the "who did person" fairly early, but I did not figure it out this time. I read it quicker than I did most of Stuart Woods' books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristin | 1/2/2012

    " Typical Stone Barrington novel. Lots of sex, lots of dining at Elaines, etc. I like his novels but they're like James Pattersons. Books you can read in a day and then forget about them. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jerry Banks | 12/10/2011

    " This book is amoung Stuart Woods best books. I enjoyed it tremendously. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sw | 10/29/2011

    " Read a chapter or so and realized that it was starting out just like a number of his other books. I put it down to find something better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steve | 9/1/2011

    " Stoneand Dino, are enjoying some pasta when in walks former client and all around sad sack Herbie Fisher...with a briefcase containing $14 million in cash. enjoyable. great on plane home from moline. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Joanne | 6/20/2011

    " I can only say OK to this book because it did not hold my attention, in act midway thru I became bored. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Margiek2000 | 5/24/2011

    " Like Stone Barrington and his cop friend, Dino. Patterson does a good job of developing characters and maintaining a good, fast-moving plot. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alan | 5/1/2011

    " I enjoy the Woods books, especially the Barrington series. This is not one fo the best, but is a fun read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John | 3/18/2011

    " Maybe the best of the Stone Barrington series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 James | 3/17/2011

    " just so/so, not a very good ending. read in morriville, pa "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeffrey | 3/14/2011

    " I am happy that Stone's latest squeeze did not get offed in this book! I was beginning to think that these ladies were doomed if they slept with Stone more that 20 times in a week! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pmcdnld2 | 2/18/2011

    " Read a chapter or so and realized that it was starting out just like a number of his other books. I put it down to find something better. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barbara | 2/17/2011

    " Stuart Woods is always a favorite of mine but this book was not as exciting as some of his others. I am a little tired of Herbie Fisher and his antics. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John | 1/30/2011

    " A better than average Woods book. A few extra turns and characters than usual which makes this one a half star better than my normal 3 star Woods rating. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Melissa | 1/24/2011

    " A very predictable Barrington novel - he drinks, he eats at Elaine's, he gets the girl in bed, he solves the crime. Basic formula that's starting to get a little old. "
