    Stone Barrington is lured from Elaine's to New England and the genteel but cutthroat world of priceless antiques, historic homes, and lavish country estates. In a place dominated by bluebloods and their inherited wealth, along with the nouveau riche, there are surprisingly few rules of engagement, and Stone finds himself navigating a dangerous course, one where even the most expensive and sought-after status symbols are sometimes stolen and sometimes clever fakes, though no less priceless.

    W. French says: "Excellent"
    "Terrible Book"
    Overall

    I'm a great fan of Stuart Woods and was very disappointed with this confusing and inept story.

    It appeared as if a book were due and this one was it. a terrible effort. Save your money.

    Kyle McAvoy grew up in his father's small-town law office in York, Pennsylvania. He excelled in college, was elected editor-in-chief of The Yale Law Journal, and his future has limitless potential. But Kyle has a secret, a dark one, an episode from college that he has tried to forget. The secret, though, falls into the hands of the wrong people, and Kyle is forced to take a job he doesn't want, even if it's a job most law students can only dream about....

    JoAnn says: "Good, but not nearly as good as The Firm""
    "John Grisham should be ashamed"
    Overall

    The plot was a stretch but most of the book was well written and the view of a big time law firm was interesting. The books hums along merrily, building to a climax and then just ends.

    To go through all that writing and neglect to write an ending is inexcusable. It felt like a "rip-off." Certainly the worst Grisham book ever and possibly one of the most disappointing audio books ever.

    I always thought publishers had editors who helped writers recognize their deficiencies. Guess not. Did anyone read this book before putting it in print? The publisher is equally guilty. They should all be ashamed of themselves.

    Save your money.

    Balram Halwai is a complicated man. Servant. Philosopher. Entrepreneur. Murderer. Balram tells us the terrible and transfixing story of how he came to be a success in life - having nothing but his own wits to help him along. Through Balram's eyes, we see India as we've never seen it before: the cockroaches and the call centers, the prostitutes and the worshippers, the water buffalo and, trapped in so many kinds of cages that escape is (almost) impossible, the white tiger.

    With a charisma as undeniable as it is unexpected, Balram teaches us that religion doesn't create morality and money doesn't solve every problem.

    Mark P. Furlong says: "Entertaining, thought-provoking, darkly funny"
    "A thououghly entertaining experience."
    Overall

    I'm not a great judge of the Indian language accent or anything else. John Lee is amazing. I think he's the best narrator I've listened to and I've listened to a lot of them.

    His Indian accent added enormously to the enjoyment of this audio book. Whether or not he mispronounced some words is beyond me and I don't much care. This wasn't a textbook. It was entertainment.

    Listen to this book.

    One evening, Danny, an East End cockney who works as a garage mechanic, takes his girlfriend up to the West End to celebrate their engagement. He crosses the path of Spencer Craig, a West End barrister tipped to be the youngest Queen's Counsel of his generation. A few hours later Danny is arrested for murder and later is sentenced to 22 years in prison.

    Debbie McKelvey says: "Very Entertaining"
    "Best Ever!"
    Overall

    I've listened to hundreds of recorded books and this is one of the best ever. The story was well crafted and the narration was superb. I was sorry when it ended. Don't miss this book.
