Dirt (Stone Barrington Series #2) by Stuart Woods

Book Description

 Series: Stone Barrington Novels

Feared and loathed for her poison pen and ice queen persona, Amanda Dart has made her share of enemies. Then the tables are turned. An anonymous gossip monger is faxing Amanda’s personal and private peccadilloes to anyone who can read. Desperate to save her reputation, she enlists the help of New York lawyer and private investigator Stone Barrington to learn the identity of the faxer. And everyone in the world of tabloid journalism becomes a suspect.

But the faxes don’t stop. In fact, they get worse. And Stone winds up with more leads than one man can handle, until Amanda takes matters dangerously into her own hands and turns the world of gossip on its head. As the circle of suspects shrinks, Stone discovers that even the most respected members of the social scene will stop at nothing—even homicide—to clear their sullied names.

Review –

I’ve read other books in this series but  have missed a few and this is the first step to change that.  It was a pleasant read and even though parts were a bit unbelievable, the character of Stone Barrington,(isn’t that a great name) an ex-cop turned lawyer and a “special” one at that, captivates the reader with clever antics,romantic escapades and the spirit of a knight in shining armour.  Now how can that be a bad thing?
