At first I thought this was just a selective reprint of the others but now that I have read it I truly believe this is his best one yet. It covers the topics of the other books and pulls out the true "liquor" of knowledge of the other books. Certainly it is because of this person I have been doing blacksmithing and traditional woodworking for decades now.

The Iroquois have attracted previous scholarly attention for their form of government--which has been seen as democratic, and possibly a model for aspects of early American democracy--and for the location, numbers, and alliances which had a role in conflict between France and Britain and its American colonies for control of this Lake Ontario region important for transportation, commerce, and settlement farther west.
The century and a half covered Stuart Woods is a favorite because of Stone Barrington series and now for Ed Eagle series even if both characters seem to get too quickly involved with doubtful women which men of their supposed intellect might approach more cautiously. But one should simply accept the novels as simple escapism with a grandiose lifestyle. Only 1 left in stock - order soon. I love the Harry Potter series and with its inevitable demise, I too have found myself looking for alternatives.
After only one book, I would probably suggest the Edge Chronicles for a younger reading-audience than the Harry Potter series, but that is not to say that I, as a 25 year old child , could not have fun with them. Again, with only one book done, I am already looking forward to the second book. For the first installment of the series, poor Twig the main character has a very rough go at it.
He is basically pushed out of the proverbial nest and finds himself in a situation where he must find his own way. Beyond the Deepwoods follows Twig as he continuously finds himself face-to-face with danger. At every turn he It wasn't a mystery in the truest sense, because you know all along "who dun it" but it was enjoyable enough. Some of the dialogue felt pretty unrealistic.

While I liked the story, I found the poor narration annoying because the character voices all sounded pretty much alike. The female voices all sounded the same, like they were sexually "purring" even Eagle's secretary which is ridiculous while most of the male voices sounded like they were grunting.
The problem with using different narrators when adding characters from earlier books is that the narrator uses a completely different style voice, which just sounds wrong. Wood's writing style has While I liked the story, I found the poor narration annoying because the character voices all sounded pretty much alike. Wood's writing style has eroded or perhaps evaporated.
The constant brand name dropping at every opportunity to impress? Sadly pathetic. Nov 06, Mysteryfan rated it liked it Shelves: suspense. This series features a Santa Fe criminal lawyer instead of Stone Barrington.follow url
Ed Eagles' ex-wife is acquitted of trying to murder him and she decides to try again. The body count is higher than in the Barrington books - seven murders, three attempted murders, and an accidental death in this book alone. Still a pretty good read. Not exactly a mystery or even a suspense, as readers know exactly who is doing what.

And next I can't wait to see what happens in book 4 -- since Julia and Leah and a few other characters have received their just rewards! How do writers picks their characters names? Put them in a big bag and the next one picked gets that name. Vittorio only one name lololol.

Jul 19, T-Roy rated it liked it. I am here at the beach and wanted to pack a book that is not new and in mint condition because it always ends up wet, sandy, and with yellowed pages. I bought this ex-library HB 8 or 9 years ago so it was the perfect candidate. Not my favorite, but not bad. A bit cheesy for my tastes, but it was fine for a beach read.

I love hearing Stone Barrington portrayed in audio form while driving. No matter how far I drive Tony Roberts makes me smile as Stone solves another crime.

I should have stopped right then. Stuart Woods is a hit and miss with me. Ed Eagle is not as compelling as some of Stuart's other characters, but still an entertaining light read..

The last or so pages builds an interesting plot with unexpected twists and a larger cast of police and detective characters than are usually present in the Stuart Woods series. The plot here included several minor physical details, with crossings into and out of Mexico.

One problem with the plot was that the characters were too intertwined with actions from the past folding into present actions and the cast of villains compounding each others downfall at the end. The syntax that Stuart Woods uses might have been dragged out of an old black and white movie thriller. The characters are polite to each other, don't use vernacular expressions, and use complete sentences. The effect might be heard in a live drama where the stage characters must make a clear presentation to an audience that is refined for an upscale presentation. Even politicians selling their lies don't have as smooth of a delivery as is presented in these characters.
The other problem that I had with this book, as with several of the Barrington books, is that the large sums of money so cavalierly bandied about, and the movement of the financial and real estate transactions used to support the plot process is so ulta-smooth and made on one-comment discussion decisions, that the believable credibility for suspense is too distorted to maintain a readers focus and interest. While this allows the book to be speed-read through as if a fan were blowing the pages, it doesn't leave the reader with the satisfaction of having experienced anguishing anticipation.
The characters end up with the dimensionality of comic book action figures.
