Book Note: Stuart Woods, Cut and Thrust

I read this book about 2-Jun-2016. This is the first time I've read this book. The book is copyright 2014. This note was last modified Tuesday, 14-Jun-2016 09:41:03 PDT.

This is book 30 of the "Stone Barrington" series.

This note contains spoilers for the book.


Out in LA, helping get Katie Lee nominated for president (Democratic ticket, naturally).

In fact, Stone plays a key part, by giving valuable advice and even instructions to campaign staff not subject to his orders, involving lying to major outside players. Good thing the author is on his side!

Lots of ongoing action from other books, and my reading them in semi-random order leaves me not always following the flow of those stories (library availability makes holding out for publication order very slow).

Teddy Fay has a prominent role again, even though he doesn't actually manage to murder the crazy woman (he's there with the sniper rifle, but never gets a shot).

One of the more amusing too-much-coincidence bombing accidents—bomber has his head up the front gear well of an airplane checking the installation of his cell-triggered-bomb when a wrong number call sets it off.

It goes too easily often, but the importance of networking at this level does play an important role in this book. I hope this helps remind people how little people really ever accomplish on their own.
