The Collectibles Trilogy, by James L. Kaufman, tells the story of Joe Hart, Preston Wilson, and Katherine Kelly. I got to review the conclusion of the trilogy, The Conciliators. In this book, Preston Wilson’s life is once again imploding – this time as headline news, bylined by Katherine Kelly. Under fire thanks to the financial shenanigans of a longtime friend, the CEO finds himself in trouble with the FBI, the Russian mafia, and his creditors. If he doesn’t come up with a plan – and quickly – he could lose everything and find himself, his wife, and his shareholders in prison. Inspired by Joe Hart’s life lessons, Preston sets a new course, vowing to fight for what matters most: his family, his friends, and the Collectibles.
The book is a thrilling, exciting novel. It's easy to read, and provides a good conclusion to the trilogy. If you like other action novels, you'll enjoy this one. The topic of financial trouble isn't general seen as an exciting tale, but Kaufman manages to make it so, weaving in elements of danger and the human element of relationships.
