Lots of writers write about courtroom drama, but this is by far one of the best I've read in a long time. I can't write about my favorite part, but I'll just say this... exposure rocks.
He nailed it.
Exposure-the price we pay.
Don't know what I want to be when I grow up. Trip's cool though. Use Audible to make gym-training sane... And rip my imagination.
OK... during the read I kept muttering, "Damn! Didn't see that coming!"
Mitzner's plotting is magnetic. You know, the kind of story that keeps you listening in the driveway after the ride home? This story will create an interest that will conflict with whatever else you've got to do besides listen to the next part. It's hard to believe that the guy who started out with this novel fell so far apart with his next, "A Case Of Redemption." I'm glad that I gave Mitzner another chance with this novel but I'm still sorry I read the just barely redeemable succeeding book from this guy,
David LeDoux reads this gaggle of conundrums invisibly... which is to say he never intrudes, yet presents powerfully, which is an impressive talent. Conundrums? Over and above the essential legal mysteries here, the theme swirls around questions of family, fidelity, culture, and society's rules regarding actions and consequences. It's provocative questions will haunt you yet not subtract from the entertainment values.
I am an avid eclectic reader.
I am always on the look out for a new author, so when Audible list a new author's first book on it's front page a jumped to get it. It is a fast paced court room drama that kept me interested. I must say I had the ending figured out differently than what the author did, so I was a bit surprised by the ending. The reader David LeDoux did a good job narrating the book. I shall be looking for Mitzner's next book.
Give yourself the best Christmas present ever;download this book and and listen while cooking and washing all those dishes. You won't even mind that others are watching good football or the original Scrooge on TV. Cannot believe that this is Mr.Mitzner's first legal thriller. He is a natural at this game and you will not be disappointed! Narration is equally as fine.
Not really, because it has a lot going on and doesn't seem to end.
He was okay, not horrible.
Lifetime Movie of the week: A Conflict of Intrest
Never read it in print, but the narration was very good, despite failure to convey female voice.
Should say Abby - but she was left incomplete
understated, and a bit self-critical
made me want the next one, which I gather will be in May
not bad at all
This is a gripping and complicated story that keeps you wondering until the very end. By drawing parallels between the various characters and their actions, questions of right an wrong, personal responsibility, and justice are brought forward. Very engaging.
The lower rating for performance is due to acoustic shifts in the audio. It's a technical problem, rather than an issue with the narrartor (who is actually quite good). The problems aren't sufficient to interfere with the story, though.
This is such a well-crafted plot. It kept me guessing for the whole book. I loved the reader and went to the Audiobook website to try to find another book read by David LeDoux, but most of them are short stories, or science fiction. Not my cup of tea. But, in my opinion, both the author and the reader are first-rate, and I will watch for further offerings by either of them. I did see that Amazon has a new book by Mizner available for pre-order that will come out in May. I hope that it has the same narrator, and that it will be available as soon as published.
Speaker, Coach, Author - in Reno, NV (A GREAT place!) I've been an avid Audible fan for several years. Listen on my iPhone many hours each week.
WOW! I'm anxiously awaiting his next book. I wanted to write my review before I was even finished but I waited. This is 5 stars all the way. Characters - multifaceted and believable; story - compelling and interesting; narrator - excellent for this book. This is an author who, if he lives up to his first book in subsequent books, will have fans who are thrilled as each new book is available. Stay home and write, Adam! We're all waiting.
A professor at Dodge College, I teach Film Music. I spent 33 years in the movie business before teaching. I LOVE books and my girls. Ta-Da!
As a long airplane ride, exchange for your time kind of story it's NOT BAD. However it's not great either. Entertaining, and some nice factual, legal material keep it from being a waste of time. The writing is OKAY. Not superb. The characters are believable. Not Memorable. The performance is fine. I'd like to rave about this book, but can't. It's okay. It will pass your time. You won't fall in love or hate with any of the characters. I read it because of the Alan Dershowitz "LOVED IT" But I have to wonder what the professor means by that word. Anyway. You won't HATE it, how's that?
