    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.

    Would you try another book from Adam Mitzner and/or David LeDoux?

    Not a chance.


    Has A Conflict of Interest turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of David LeDoux?

    It would have helped -- but the story line is so bad, that nothing would help.

    Thom and Jennifer Harlow are the perfect couple, with three perfect children. They maybe two of the biggest mega movie stars in the world, but they're also great parents, philanthropists, and just all-around good people. When they disappear without a word from their ranch, facts are hard to find. They live behind such a high wall of security and image control that even world-renowned Private Investigator Jack Morgan can't get to the truth.

    What disappointed you about Private L.A.?

    The story line is absurd -- but worst of all is the constant reputation of mystery novel clichés, after cliches, after cliches -- well, you get the picture! I listened to the entire book just to see how trite it would become. It did not disappoint.


    What character would you cut from Private L.A.?

    All of them!


    Any additional comments?

    The narration was unbelievably bad.

    The police urgently need Harry Hole…. A killer is stalking Oslo's streets. Police officers are being slain at the scenes of crimes they once investigated but failed to solve. The murders are brutal, the media reaction hysterical. But this time, Harry can't help.... For years, detective Harry Hole has been at the center of every major criminal investigation in Oslo. His dedication to his job and his brilliant insights have saved the lives of countless people. But now, with those he loves most facing terrible danger, Harry is not in a position to protect anyone. Least of all himself...

    Would you listen to Police again? Why?

    All of the Harry Hole books are 5 star -- but this one tops them all. I highly recommend this entire series -- if you start in the middle of the series, say # 5, you will go back to #1 because you don't want to miss out on each of these terrific stories.

    It's the start of Hollywood on Hudson, and New York City is swept up in the glamour. Every night, the red carpet rolls out for movie stars arriving at premieres in limos; the most exclusive restaurants close for private parties for wealthy producers and preeminent directors; and thousands of fans gather with the paparazzi, hoping to catch a glimpse of the most famous and beautiful faces in the world. With this many celebrities in town, special task force NYPD Red is on high alert - and they can't afford to make a single mistake.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Barely. Storyline is contrived, and the dialogue weak -- or has Jo Nesbo's writing spoiled me??

    Together with his partner, Harry Hinds, Madriani must piece together the threads of a decades-old conspiracy involving priceless gold coins, an aging American spy, a disaffected Russian soldier, and a forgotten weapon from the days of JFK and the Cuban Missile Crisis. As the separate strands of the story come together, Madriani finds information that will ultimately lead him to the one person who holds the key to it all: a man some call "The Guardian of Lies".

    Sharon in Surrey says: "Guardian of Lies"
    "Fantastic book"
    Overall

    From beginning to end, Martini does an outstanding job of coming up with the unexpected. His best book -- did not want it to end.
