When last we encountered Ed Eagle, he had been the target of a murder-for-hire plot orchestrated by his wife, Barbara, the ultimate black widow. But when Barbara escapes from police custody, Ed knows that not only will his life be in danger but also the life of his new girlfriend, and, of course, of any rich man unlucky enough to be lured into Barbara’s web. To add to his troubles, Ed has taken on a new client, Don Wells, who may or may not have murdered his own wife and son.From the posh resorts of southern California to the New Mexico desert and the seedy hotels of Tijuana, Ed Eagle will follow every lead—and hope that he doesn’t wind up Santa Fe Dead.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dana | 2/20/2014

    " I'm really not as big of a fan of Stuart Woods' Ed Eagle series, but, as with all of his books, they do manage to keep me entertained. And they're definitely quick reads (airport/beach books, as my family classifies such things), so I can't really complain that they keep me from reading something better. A nice brain vacation, but not my first choice. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dorsch and Navarre Branch Libraries | 2/10/2014

    " An Ed Eagle mystery. Ed's wife Barbara - the ultimate Black Widow - is back. She escapes police custody and Ed's life is in danger again. Typical light mystery read frmj Woods. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tom | 2/9/2014

    " The evil but beautiful ex-wife of Ed Eagle, Santa Fe attorney, is at it again in this novel. She is always deliciously nasty, deceitful, and dangerous. Does she finally get her due in this novel? Read it and find out. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lora Baker | 2/5/2014

    " Great book by one of my favorite authors! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kathy | 1/31/2014

    " Reading earlier books in Stuart Woods' series featuring Ed Eagle will provide some of the necessary character development to then somewhat enjoy Santa Fe Dead. Yet, even then you need to have low expectations. Woods' books are quick, easy reading for when you are looking for an afternoon escape into the world of the rich and famous involved with crime and murder. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Donna | 1/23/2014

    " This is the first Stuart Woods book I've read and I did enjoy it. If you are looking for deep psychological analysis and character development this is not for you. It is entertaining, page turning, brain candy. A wonderful beach read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bob | 1/20/2014

    " Mix of high-class/low-class values, murder and mayhem. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Arlene Shulman/Lichtman | 1/19/2014

    " Interesting but not the best writing. Jumps around too much. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beth | 1/12/2014

    " Another quickie - not as good as book 4 in the series. More understanding of the story behind the continuing story. Not very realistic, too many people with too much money and not many morals. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ron | 1/6/2014

    " Nancy 5 stars; Ron 4.5 stars "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 KarenC | 12/25/2013

    " About equal to a tv show; better if you prefer to read and use your imagination over watching tv. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michele | 12/20/2013

    " Excellent read in 1 night! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nikki | 12/9/2013

    " Easy airport reading. Not bad for its genre "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Naomi | 12/8/2013

    " It is typical of Stuart Woods' books but he does have interesting characters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary | 12/6/2013

    " My mom, Lee Hight, is a character in this book. I purchased the naming rights in a charity auction, and she finally got published. The book is an easy, quick read which you'll enjoy. Hope you read it! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Icicle4 | 11/29/2013

    " I may be burning out on Stuart Woods. This book in particular had an odd cadence. Almost is if he dictated it to be ready for a mini-series on TV. On the plus side they are a quick read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa | 11/27/2013

    " my first Stuart Woods book. Not too bad. Everything wraps up nicely in the end with a big bow. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Carol | 11/12/2013

    " What can I say...it's summer. It was OK. It's amazing how old it is reading about people with way too much disposable income, although reading through their many happy hours always makes me want a glass of wine. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jake | 11/4/2013

    " Audio Book. Another Stuart Woods novel. It seemed like it should be a Barbara Eagle novel not an Ed Eagle novel, even though she was the bad guy. It felt like it was a lot more about her than Ed. It was entertaining. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kevin L. | 9/27/2013

    " My first Stuart Woods read and I'm definitely a fan! Great story, fast paced, I really enjoyed this introduction to a new author! Stuart, I'm a fan! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Teresa Drelick | 7/3/2013

    " Much better than his Stone Barrington Series. I'm glad I continued to give him a chance. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Paul Kelly | 4/6/2013

    " Picked up this book at the airport to read on a flight. The plot seemed pretty contrived to me, but I found myself interested in the characters--particularly the villains. This didn't make me a Stuart Woods fan, but it was a fair read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Wanda | 4/4/2013

    " OK for what it was - a competent beach read and entertaining. Stock characters but engaging reading. Not really worth my putting much effort into a full synopsis and review. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dave Wine | 2/9/2013

    " I enjoyed this. Several things going on and it keep me interested. Sort of an outlandish coincidences that many characters knew or associated with other characters in the book. But I could not put it down. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hanje | 1/18/2013

    " A mystery set in Santa Fe and LA. Literary candy. Enjoyable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melissa Mattar | 11/23/2012

    " Quick read...My first Stuart Woods...pretty good...very much like James Patterson, but not quite as good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sue Shaw-Smith | 11/18/2012

    " I'm a big fan of Woods and his characters, and lawyer Ed Eagle is no exception. Easy to read and a page turner! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Elaine | 8/9/2011

    " I have listened to a few of Stuart Woods books on tape and have enjoyed them. I think I would have liked this book better on tape. It is light weight and predictable but a fast good junk novel read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Meredith Hiatt | 7/12/2011

    " My first Stuart Woods book - I wasn't very impressed with his writing ability, did not enjoy it nearly as much as most of James Patterson's books. "
