It is London 2012 and Stratford in the East End is at the centre of the world. But next to the Olympic Park are some of the poorest and most crime-ridden streets in the city. PI Lee Arnold and his assistant, Mumtaz Hakim, run a detective agency in a community fraught with conflict and tension. Approached by a frightened woman, they start to investigate her stalker. But soon their enquiries turn in a far more sinister direction.
"A compelling new series." (Sunday Telegraph)

A new set of characters, but just as gripping!
Absolutely. Anyone who has enjoyed Barbara Nadel' s other books is likely to enjoy this. Featuring two new detectives, and set in London in the recent past ( the lead up to the Olympics), this gentle thriller is nonetheless quite gripping and is an intriguing start to what I hope will be a great new series.
There were many, the mysteries around visiting the new church building; moving objects; mysterious actions etc. but the climax was particularly gripping.
Paul Thornley is a very good narrator who brings the plots to life in an interesting and gripping way, allowing the listener to build clear mind pictures.
A Private Business can never truly be private ... someone, somewhere knows your secret; but who? How will it be used?

I kept trying with this book but could just get into it. I don't know if it was the cockney geezer accent, or the God complex, but it didn't work for me. Disappointed
