I'm a technician that does a lot of driving for his job. I use the "windshield" time to listen to audiobooks.
It's a very good book, with good story, good characters etc. I give it 90 out of 100, or 4.5 stars.
Well the story is told from the main characters view point, so it's kind of him.
I drive a lot for work, audio books allow me to read and drive at the same time.
got very tired of listening to the main character trying to talk himself out of jumping into bed with the equaly uninteristing assistant. After 3 hours of that I gave it up. How did this ever get published?
It would have helped to have some sort of plot.
Great disappointment. Sure hated to waste a credit on this junk.
It combined all my favorite genres - crime, suspense, a little romance...
It was hard to stop listening to this one. Lots of twists and turns.
I don't believe I've listened to any of this narrator's performances. On a scale of 1 to 5, I would rate him a 3.5.
Looking forward to more books by Adam Mitzner.
Slow moving with an unimaginative plot. I finished it, but it was a struggle. I want more mystery and twists and turns in a book like this.
List of favorite books: Woodcutter - Reginald Hill, Consent to Kill, First Deadly Sin - Lawrence Sanders, Sniper Elite - Scott McEwen
It definitely had a descent plot. It kept my interest even though I had a hard time liking the main character. He was a little bit of a tool while trying to appear as this
Probably not. There was a lot of good - But a lot of fluff drama.
Not bad... Like Scott Brick - He was a little melodramatic. But not too terrible. A good voice.
I could for sure if they focused on the court room and legal stuff more than the drama

I anticipated a Grisham-level legal thriller as suggested by other reviewers.
Instead, this book tries to be legal drama wrapped inside of personal drama, or perhaps personal drama wrapped inside of legal drama. The result is that both the legal drama and the personal drama are boring, shallow and just barely interesting. The author tries to salvage this mediocrity with a couple of twists at the end, but they are barely interesting, so they fail to save this very bad book.
And then there's the reader. This man has a decent voice but his reading skills are deficient, He emphasizes with fake emotion almost every noun, verb, preposition, adjective, adverb and conjunction in the book, regardless of the need to give any of them a dramatic emphasis. Particularly irritating is his impersonation of the protagonist's 5-year-old daughter, Very very annoying.
A complete waste of 11 hours and a credit.
I am a big fan of any kind of legal thriller or procedural. In that category this book did not disappoint. I enjoyed the courtroom scenes though the author repeated many legal cliches I have heard in other books.
My main problem throughout the entire book was the fact that the protagonist was not a very likable person. And I usually want the main character of a book to be someone I can be sympathetic to. Alex Miller was not that guy.
Overall I enjoyed the book and felt the narrator did an excellent job, But the whole time I was listening I was just annoyed with Alex Miller!
I wish I'd not wasted my time or a credit on this book. The narration was good, but the story was terrible. There was nothing thrilling about this thriller. Do not listen to what the publisher's summary or the critics have to say on this book. It was flat out boring.
The storyline was slow, boring, and repetitive.
How drawn out the story was. Very very little happened, and it seemed to go over the same topics over and over.
A little hard to listen to during the narratives.
the main character
Honestly this is the first time I have had a bad experience with audible. It came as a recommendation from audible in my library and I wanted to try something new. What a mistake that was.
Burn it on a cold night.
There was no story
I don'y think so
The character dwells too much on himself and there is no apparent point.
