Katherine Kelly's mentor says she has the makings of a good reporter, but to be great she must learn to find the emotional core of a story and not hold back in its telling. Then he suggests one last graduate-school assignment: Find someone who has influenced her family, and tell that story.
Katherine decides to pursue the only family story that has eluded her all her life: the identity of the father she never knew. Her mother, knowing her persistent daughter won't stop until she gets the truth, breaks her years of silence and makes the call she always swore she would never make. The reality of her father stands in stark contrast to the father of her dreams, and Katherine realizes she must decide for herself who her father really is: the guardian of a group of wounded souls he calls the Collectibles, the attentive father of a newly discovered daughter, the person of interest in a bank-fraud investigation, or a little of all three. Blood is deeper than principle, or so she is told. And a great journalist follows a story wherever it leads. It's Katherine's call, and only she can make it.

James Kaufman is a true storyteller
The Concealers is the second book in the "Collectibles" trilogy. This book like the first is extremely memorable in the messages the author has tried (and I think succeeded) to convey.
The protagonist Preston Wilson is also from the first book. You can listen to this one without the first but I think the follow through is better if listened to in order.
This book deals with Preston getting to know the other Collectibles, the people he promised Joe Hart he would look after for life.
He also meets his 24 year old daughter that he did not know he had. And finally he finds himself once again in the cross hairs of an investigation. Being a man once driven by greed there much inner turmoil.
Along with this he is learning to deal with his year old hearing impaired son and the guilt and denial that come with having a child with a disability.
Joe Barrett as always gives an outstanding performance. His voice is perfect for this book.
This is an EXCELLENT follow up to the first book. James Kaufman is a gifted storyteller.
