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 perhaps 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.

I liked this Audiobook CD by Woods, Stuart. I like this author and his style. It is too violent and sexual for children to listen to. This is a murder mystery sleuthing story. The twists and turns in the story keep you interested. The book is called "New York Dead" because that is what DB calls all the dead bodies. This is one of the very early books about Stone Barrington (SB). In this story he is still an NYPD Police Officer and the partner of Dino Bashety (DB). SB just had his knee shot on the job in a shoot out with a criminal. After 4 hours surgery the Police Commissioner decides SB is to be let go from the force under medical coverage. SB is to received medical benefit coverage and a medical leave income for life. SB wants to stay on the force; but, he never bonded with the other Police Officers (PO) very much. The other PO's except for DB always considered him to be on the outside. One night while off duty SB witnesses Sasha Nijinsky (SN) being thrown over a balcony 12 floor up in a high rise. SB is the first PO on the crime scene. The perpetuating villainous culprit gets away due to the injured knee slowing down SB in the chase. There are many potential offenders that may have been responsible for the assault. SN had many enemies and others who owed her money. It takes a lot of investigation by DB and SB and the FBI and other PO's. Finally, the truth is revealed. It ends up being SB's lover, Carrie Hillard (CH). In the end, there is lots of dead bodies in this story including CH (fell by accident) and Henrietta Morgan (Hank). Hank was a suicide. Herbert Van Fleet (HVF) was one of the murders for many people. DB marries Mary Anne Bianca (MAB) in this story. MAB is two pregnant when they married. MAB's dad is a mobster. MAB's is not happy she married a PO. Stone goes back to school to do a short term law diploma. SB writes the bar examination and passes. SB is hired by the law firm as a consultant working with Bill Hagers and Frank Woodman . SB is setting up his office at home for the first time. He has a new secretary, Helen Wouton. SB has just recently moved into the house at Turtle Creek. He is broke financially. He is doing all the wood work himself renovating the house. All the plumbing is redone by outside contractors. It is taking all his cash. SB has no car or driver at this point.
