    Kevin Mitnick was the most elusive computer break-in artist in history. He accessed computers and networks at the world’s biggest companies—and however fast the authorities were, Mitnick was faster, sprinting through phone switches, computer systems, and cellular networks. He spent years skipping through cyberspace, always three steps ahead and labeled unstoppable.

    Where does Ghost in the Wires rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Ranks among the best and most unbelievable true stories I've ever read


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    That this wasn't fiction dreamed up in an authors imagination and that this modern-day criminal is someone you (almost) never want to see get caught - that's what made this such a great read for me!


    Have you listened to any of Ray Porter’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Without a doubt


    Any additional comments?

    A little too much technical explanation from time to time, but is written so that if you want to ignore this stuff, you still won't miss a single beat

    Alex Miller is a criminal defense lawyer leading the life he always imagined. At thirty-five, he is the youngest partner at New York City's most prestigious law firm, with a beautiful wife and a perfect daughter. When Alex's father suddenly passes away, Alex is introduced to Michael Ohlig, a rich and powerful man who holds an almost mythical place in his family lore. But Alex is surprised when Ohlig admits that he's in serious legal trouble, accused of crimes involving hundreds of millions of dollars.

    What disappointed you about A Conflict of Interest?

    This is by far, the most amateurish book I've ever read (heard). To be fair, if you like to have every little thing about every person, place and thing described to you in every possible detail imaginable, you may get along with this book just fine. . For me, after 12 chapters, the real story plot (if this book actually has one) still remains to be seen. It was as if describing completely mundane things page after page is how to write a book.


    What was most disappointing about Adam Mitzner’s story?

    His obvious (at least to me) newness to writing good fiction.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Just get to the point. Or at least stop boring the reader so badly while you get there.


    What character would you cut from A Conflict of Interest?

    The narrator.


    Any additional comments?

    I couldn't escape the feeling that the writer was very young and quite inexperienced in writing books.
