    Another great early work by Stuart Woods Cat Catledge leaves to sail around the world with his wife and daughter, having sold his tech company for millions of dollars What was supposed to be the time of their lives ends abruptly in savage murders when they are boarded by actual pirates Cat s wife and daughter are killed, while Cat is left for dead but survives He is struggling to pull his life back together when he is woken late one night by a phone call from a woman who sounds like his daug Another great early work by Stuart Woods Cat Catledge leaves to sail around the world with his wife and daughter, having sold his tech company for millions of dollars What was supposed to be the time of their lives ends abruptly in savage murders when they are boarded by actual pirates Cat s wife and daughter are killed, while Cat is left for dead but survives He is struggling to pull his life back together when he is woken late one night by a phone call from a woman who sounds like his daughter The majority of the book is Cat s attempt to navigate the international drug world and the infamous dealer known as The Anaconda to find out if his daughter is alive.One of the things that make this book so great is the pacing It is masterful The tension builds quickly, and has you on the edge of your seat but makes use of small bits of humor to release tension and keeps the climax from occurring too soon It is gripping It s not a book where you have to read 100 pages before you really get into it The storyline is the other excellent part A good writer can take a ho hum event and make it interesting, here we have a great story to start with The plot is superb and there are several twists that keep you from predicting what s going to happen There were parts where I literally thought, WHOA I did NOT see that coming I would recommend this book to anyone who likes thrillers, and also if you re looking for a book for someone who maybe doesn t read a lot or who wants to readthe book grabs you and doesn t let you go until the end

    Engrossing pulled me right inThere are two Stuart Woods out there, at least in my mind There s the early Stuart Woods that wrote great books like Chiefs and there s the Stone Barrister writing Stuart Woods that just writes a formula plot, mails it in and collects a check In White Cargo , a wealthy American, Wendell Catledge, is yachting off of the coast of Colombia when he is attacked by pirates and his wife and daughter are kidnapped and end up in the underworld of the narco traffick Engrossing pulled me right inThere are two Stuart Woods out there, at least in my mind There s the early Stuart Woods that wrote great books like Chiefs and there s the Stone Barrister writing Stuart Woods that just writes a formula plot, mails it in and collects a check In White Cargo , a wealthy American, Wendell Catledge, is yachting off of the coast of Colombia when he is attacked by pirates and his wife and daughter are kidnapped and end up in the underworld of the narco traffickers Catledge goes underground to find his family in Colombia White Cargo is definitely an early Stuart Woods book I found myself pulled into this plot and I just had to know what happened next, despite the fact that the violence and sexual exploitation was a bit too extreme for my tastes The ending was fairly hokey but the overall strength of the rest of the bookthan makes up for that.See all of my reviews for Stuart Woods books here

  5. Colleen S Harris Colleen S Harris says:

    The novel depends on an unlikely string of coincidences and deus ex machinas is that how you d pluralize that Dei ex machina for momentum, and is pretty poorly written for instance, the author has a few crutch words and phrases that he falls back on repeatedly, which is distraction to the reader It was tough to suspend disbelief long enough to get through this one I probably wouldn t even recommend it for junk beach reading.

    OK, so they thought they killed Cat A shotgun blast to the chest and sinking of his boat should have done that Oops, he survived Two years later his daughter, presumed dead, called him Um, by the end of the story we learn that she is in a fugue state, only speaks Spanish and can t talk much to anybody But she remembered his phone number and called him Go figure The ending of this book is just awful Unlikely, badly assembled, improbable, and what the hell was Dell doing anywhere Take it OK, so they thought they killed Cat A shotgun blast to the chest and sinking of his boat should have done that Oops, he survived Two years later his daughter, presumed dead, called him Um, by the end of the story we learn that she is in a fugue state, only speaks Spanish and can t talk much to anybody But she remembered his phone number and called him Go figure The ending of this book is just awful Unlikely, badly assembled, improbable, and what the hell was Dell doing anywhere Take it from someone who has spent 25 years working with addicts, he would not have made it to Colombia He would not have been able to buy his own lunch let alone buy into an international deal Too jagged to make it as a good read Entertaining, though Oh, and he would not have thrown the wedding ring into the sea when he was looking for his kid Just out of character for a grieving man who suddenly has hope Get laid, yes, throw away ring, no And where can I get a new Rolex for 2500 Not at my jewelery store

    First of all, I tend to rate books on my reaction to the book I prefer mysteries, action adventure, thrillers, and what I consider to be well written books I read a lot of books and I am a quick reader.So it will come as a surprise that I have rated White Cargo as a 5 star Surprising because I have read at least 20 books written by Stuart Woods, mostly Stone Barrington stories, mostly rated 3 stars with a few rated 2 stars with appropriate explanation.White Cargo is a stand alone book publish First of all, I tend to rate books on my reaction to the book I prefer mysteries, action adventure, thrillers, and what I consider to be well written books I read a lot of books and I am a quick reader.So it will come as a surprise that I have rated White Cargo as a 5 star Surprising because I have read at least 20 books written by Stuart Woods, mostly Stone Barrington stories, mostly rated 3 stars with a few rated 2 stars with appropriate explanation.White Cargo is a stand alone book published in 2012 Having read so many Stuart Woods books I was prepared for it to be okay, maybe even good Solid plot, solid and interesting characters, and everything hung together.I routinely have a problem with books and suspension of disbelief From beginning to end the book held together and kept me reading to the point that sometimes I had to stop because I was overloaded.So if you like action adventures, thrillers, military thrillers, or just mysteries, pick this one up if you find it on someone s bookshelves

    I started and abandoned this book within 40 pages The language from the father in the first 40 pages as it related to his daughter was very disturbing to me In just 40 pages we have the father speaking about his daughterShe seemed to be wearing only a t shirt the girl rarely bothered with underwear, and it made Cat nervous She had slipped a t shirt over the bikini, but it wasn t long enough Her creamy buns protruded from the bottom She was still not fully aware of the effect her bun rev I started and abandoned this book within 40 pages The language from the father in the first 40 pages as it related to his daughter was very disturbing to me In just 40 pages we have the father speaking about his daughterShe seemed to be wearing only a t shirt the girl rarely bothered with underwear, and it made Cat nervous She had slipped a t shirt over the bikini, but it wasn t long enough Her creamy buns protruded from the bottom She was still not fully aware of the effect her bun revealing shorts and tiny bikinis had on the opposite sex, not excluding himselfBARFI couldn t, in good conscience, keep reading this book Fiction or not, I want absolutely nothing to do with a main character who seems so obsessed with his child s sexuality Complete FAIL
