When the real restaurant Elaine’s closed, I wondered what Stuart Woods would do with his Stone Barrington series because so many of the stories take place there. In “Unnatural Acts” he opens with a final closing night for the establishment. Now the question is where do Stone and company go for their meals? So begins another chapter in the Stone Barrington legacy. Woods has filled the work with many interesting characters, complicated conflicts and a rapid pace that moves the tale along to the end. “Unnatural Acts” is an enjoyable addition to the world of Stone Barrington.
