Feared and disliked for both her poison pen and ice-queen persona, gossip columnist Amanda Dart suddenly finds the tables have turned: she is the unwitting victim of an anonymous gossipmonger who is faxing national opinion makers an outrageous scandal sheet revealing the details of her ongoing indiscretions with a well-known business tycoon. So Amanda enlists the help of New York lawyer and investigator Stone Barrington to learn the identity of the faxer. The problem is, everybody is a suspect in the world of tabloid journalism. As the faxes grow more scathing and begin to expose the peccadilloes of not only Amanda but other members of the gossip community, Barrington winds up with more leads than he can handle and an employer who is about to take matters dangerously into her own hands. The world of gossip has been turned on its head, and it becomes clear to Stone that even the most respected members of the social scene will stop at nothing -- even murder -- to clear their names. Irresistible as only good gossip can be, Dirt is a mesmerizing tale of betrayal and murder set against a backdrop of the rapid-fire Manhattan tabloid business and is filled with the twists and turns that have made Stuart Woods' novels international hits.Read Less

I am a Stuart Woods fan. I lost a ton of books in a house fire a few years ago. I have been replacing them surely but slowly. Stuart Woods is one of many who's books I am replacing. I enjoy his books. They are well worth replacing.

We now have everyone of Stuart Woods books, and bought most of them from you. This writer is very genuous, thrilling, real day life time drama, suspensful and we would recommend him and his writings to everyone that enjoys a drama, suspense, and one of those "I just can't put it down" books. The prices and information that Alibris provides made our job of finding Mr. Woods books very easy and we received them in a very timely manner. We personally wrote to Mr. Woods telling him to keep writing as we enjoyed his works. Now, in a local bookstore, I just found his latest book "Fresh Disasters" which I can't wait to get into! Mr. Woods responds to his personal emails and it was a joy to hear back from him; that's not really common from a lot of writers. As far as trying to do just one review of his writings, all the above mentioned would have to be included as reviews for every book this man has written. He makes the characters seem so real, and there was nothing in his books that was over your head as far as understanding; just down to earth good writing. He's onein a million and we will continue to encourage him to continue his writings.
