While other authors have one novel a year Woods produces at least four books a year and he keeps the quality very high for each one. “Insatiable Appetites” is one of the best Stone Barrington novels ever. This time there are several story lines that race the tale along to the end. He also settles the dilemma Stone has of where to have dinner now that Elaine’s is no longer in business. One in particular is that there is a new president elected. On the very day of the election one party says in a secret meeting they will not work with the president elect at all and will do everything they can to stop any legislation from being passed by this new president. Stone Barrington learns of this plan and is caught up in revealing the members of this covert meeting. Woods has a page turner in “Insatiable Appetites” that also has a lot to say about the present climate of politics.
