It Was Just Luck Everyone is always telling Stone Barrington that he's too smart to be a cop, but it's pure luck that places him on the streets in the dead of night, just in time to witness the horrifying incident that turns his life inside out. Suddenly he is on the front page of every New York newspaper, and his life is hopelessly entwined in the increasingly shocking life (and death) of Sasha Nijinsky, the country's hottest and most beautiful television anchorwoman. No matter where he turns, the case is waiting for him, haunting his nights and turning his days into a living hell. Stone finds himself caught in a perilous web of unspeakable crimes, dangerous friends, and sexual depravity that has throughout it one common thread: Sasha. "Suspenseful and surprising."

Stuart Woods is the author of twenty-seven novels. He lives in Maine, Florida, and New York City.From AudioFile:
When a famous news anchor dives off a skyscraper right in front of an off-duty detective, a police drama is bound to follow. Stone Barrington won't rest until he finds the answers, no matter where his search leads. Robert Lawrence delivers a "Dragnet-style" interpretation of the formulaic crime story. His characterization of Stone Barrington often blurs with that of his partner, Dino Bacetti, but neither detective's straightforward personality suffers much from the slips. Lawrence gives more flavor to the secondary players, a psychotic mortician, a nymphomaniac office administrator, a gay journalist, and an egocentric TV anchor. Too bad the plot doesn't offer more of a challenge. R.P.L. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
