    Lacey Yeager is young, captivating, and ambitious enough to take the New York art world by storm. Groomed at Sotheby's and hungry to keep climbing the social and career ladders put before her, Lacey charms men and women, old and young, rich and even richer with her magnetic charisma and liveliness. Her ascension to the highest tiers of the city parallel the soaring heights - and, at times, the dark lows - of the art world and the country from the late 1990s through today.

    L says: "Gifted writer, characters and context feel true"
    "Steve Martin is brilliant. Campbell Scott perfect."
    Overall

    I am not very interested in the NYC art world, not much into art at all really... and I loved this book from start to finish. I love all Steve Martin's work. Insightful, intelligent and thoroughly captivating. A great read, er listen. Steve Martin is brilliant. Campbell Scott's narration and interpretation of the many varied voices was simply perfect throughout.

    A small prison cell in India holds an 18-year-old penniless waiter from a Mumbai slum. But Ram Mohammad Thomas isn't a criminal. He is under arrest for correctly answering 12 tricky trivia questions on the show Who Will Win a Billion? Reluctant to part with the jackpot of one billion rupees, the show directors bribe the police to arrest Ram, accusing him of cheating.

    Ella says: "Highly Recommended"
    "Amazingly Entertaining"
    Overall

    Wow! This narrator is an absolute master with voices. He really has an amazing talent. The narrator's different voices along with this completely mesmerizing and entertaining story made this one very difficult to put down. It had everything: suspense, intrigue, drama, danger, comedy, romance. I highly recommend it. I didn't want it to end.

    When Chaz Perron's wife discovers that he is running a scam (posing as a marine biologist to doctor water samples so that an agribusiness tycoon can continue illegally dumping fertilizer into the Everglades), he pushes her overboard from a cruise liner. Unlucky for Chaz, Joey survives clutching a bale of Jamaican pot. Rescued from the Atlantic by a former police officer, Mick Stranahan, she decides not to report him but instead haunt and taunt him, with Mick's help, by playing dead.

    Phillip says: "Summer's Best Read"
    "Could Not Put It Down!"
    Overall

    Intriguing, humorous, suspenseful. The narrator has a great talent for voices that really bring each of the characters alive. Excellent! Sorry for the cliche, but it's true: I couldn't put it down.
