    An Israeli government minister is assassinated in the home of his mistress. Days later, a Mossad officer leads his final raid, killing a Hamas leader in his bed and barely escaping with his life. The action moves into the near future, when world leaders, united under the leadership of a visionary female president of the United States, broker a major compromise between Israel and the Palestinian authority. Their hope is to snuff out the violent flashpoint that fuels global terrorism.

    "Viciously bad"
    Overall

    This book does nothing but go into a vicious circle and so the title is very appropriate. I did not even finish the last few chapters because I was so disapointed. The Book hightlights 2 main characters one Muslum one Jewish, and blah blah blah, the same Palestinian, Israeli this is my land fight that will never end. One thing they agree on is they are both in love with the land and that their religions are cut from the same cloth. If you didnt have any clue of this in the past maybe this book would be dimly enlightening, for the most part its not. Most of Littells work has been great, this however is not worth buying. do yourself a favor and pass. I wonder how it ended... My ending was shutting it off, putting down the convertible top and crusing off to something more stimulating.

    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....

    "Gasping and grasping"
    Overall

    So much redundant character dialog, poor plot, poor development and poor ending. I was shocked to see the name grisham even attached. this is by far the worst audio book I've heard in a long time. Brad Melzers, the 10th Juror, surprisingly with a very simular plot also just as bad. dont waste your time. I loved all of the other grisham books I've listned to, from the law based ones to the small stories, like a painted house and playing for pizza. The associate = Yuck.
