Given that this is more implausible than previous books in the series, I wonder about the contribution of each of the two authors. Maybe Woods was the voice of reason when he was alive? On the plus side, it's a very fast read, as you don't have to take time to think about the characters.

Shades of "Chief", his first and best. I enjoyed this one---there were several possibilities and Woods played them all. His standalone books are better plotted than the Stone Barrington series.

I enjoyed this Teddy Fay novel more than some of the recent Woods books. Perhaps it is because a different author has joined due to Woods's death.
In this one, Fay is acting in a movie along with Ben's wife Tessa. A fan is obsessed with Tessa and wants to take her for his own. Meanwhile, a woman is kidnapped and held for ransom. She and her husband (Rebecca and Carl Novak) were to finance a Centurion Studios picture. But, someone was out for revenge against Novak for a perceived slight.
This is a very quick read, with plenty of humor and also some high stakes sleuthing. Enjoyable.
