    Private, the world's most renowned investigation firm, has been commissioned to provide security for the 2012 Olympic Games in London. Its agents are the smartest, fastest, and most technologically advanced in the world, and 400 of them have been transferred to London to protect more than 10,000 competitors who represent more than 200 countries. The opening ceremony is hours away when Private investigator and single father of twins, Peter Knight, is called to the scene of a ruthless murder: a high-ranking member of the games' organizing committee has been killed.

    If you could sum up Private Games in three words, what would they be?

    It was so well written (and performed) that it was difficult to remember that the London Games were months away. It felt like I was watching it unfold as opposed to listening to fiction. I thoroughly enjoyed this book.

    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 made the experience of listening to A Conflict of Interest the most enjoyable?

    It was a pleasantly written story with enough technical information to keep it interesting but not too technical. It was a good story. I found it entertaining yet real from a legal standpoint, with enough twists to keep the listener on their toes! Will watch for this authors next one!

    David Wolfe's life is approaching an exhilarating peak: a successful San Francisco lawyer, he's about to get married and has been primed for a run for Congress. But when the phone rings and he hears the voice of Hana Arif, the Palestinian woman with whom he had a passionate affair in law school, he begins a completely unexpected journey. The day after Hana's call, the prime minister of Israel is assassinated by a suicide bomber - and soon Hana is accused of being the mastermind behind the murder.

    "The best book I have ever"
    Overall

    Truly the best. I love his work because of his ability to take a controversial subject and explore it fully through his fictional characters. This one was even more amazing. I was not finished for five minutes when I was ready to go through it again.
