Stone Barrington is back in New York, and after a rather harrowing sojourn in Key West, he's looking to stay closer to home and work on some simple divorce and custody cases for Woodman & Weld. But when he crosses paths with a fetching Broadway actress-and sometime lip model- Stone gets a little more deeply involved with business than he'd expected. When his new lady love turns out to be a lady with a shady past, Stone and downtown cop Dino Bacchetti realize that her beauty may have an unusually high price. . . .
I've been reading this series for years. And like James Patterson, in my opinion, it has gone down hill in terms of quality. On the other hand, it's a very fast read and I know the characters well. When I'm in a reading slump, like now (due to lack of sleep and a short attention span), a quick book will help me get out of my slump.
Kisser is pretty much just like all of the Stone Barrington series lately. Stone gets a case involving a beautiful woman, they end up in bed, he solves the case and something happens at the end of the story to lead you into the next book. Overall, pretty unimpressive, but I didn't read it to be impressed. I read it because I knew exactly what I was getting.
If you've read the series before and are attached to the characters, grab a copy from the library. If this is a new series to you, start at the beginning, as I remember them being much better. 2.5 stars
