Barbara Holloway
review 1: For fans of Wilhelm's Barbara Holloway legal thrillers, By Stone is a solid read, complete with Barbara's detailed court room scenes. It is necessary to be familiar with the characters and the back stories, so reading at least the salient prior novels is useful. Also, as usual, a lot goes on in Barbara's mind as she walks, contemplates, etc. that gets revealed in her closing statements. The red flag is for depicted sexual violence implied but not described in detail)and extreme religious "fervor." Satisfying.
review 2: I said I would never read another Barbara Holloway book again but hey it was available and I had some vague memories of how I enjoyed some of the earlier books in the series. I had two problems with this book. I listened to this as an audiobook
... more and the reader was subpar. The reader earlier in the series was terrible-every male character was indistinguishable from the other. The reader of this one is a little better, but does nothing to enhance how prosaic the writing is in BSBBBF. The plot, the dialogue and the characters are so trite and uninteresting that had I purchased this book, I would have sought a refund from the book seller. Everything about it is old and tired. less

The plot of this book is full of twists and turns before it reaches its climax. I enjoyed it.
I'm reading this series of books again, they even are better the second time.
this book was a good legal procedural suspense. I enjoyed it - well written.
