I don't write many reviews, but this is a MUST READ/LISTEN! Adam is an amazingly gifted writer. He hooks you in minutes. His other book was excellent as well.
The story gripped me from the start and held me till the end. Certainly did not expect the ending. Looking forward to another story featuring this detective.
I listened to Adam Mitzner's first book and loved it. I was so glad to see another book by this author.
A lawyer, Dan, is taking time off after a family tragedy. He's almost hit bottom but he meets a female attorney, Nina, through friends. She convinces him to come back to law and represent a rapper accused of brutally murdering his girlfriend, who was considered a "pop princess."
Nothing is what it seems, even at the end. The attorneys are trying to solve the murder - was it their client or someone else? But they keep finding another lie their client has told them which led them in the wrong direction. The story is not predictable and could definitely be considered "ripped from the headlines" as others have said. This will keep you guessing.
I'm looking forward to Mr. Mitzner's next book.
I am a semi retired cs engineer who loves history and quality novels.....i am usually reading one hard cover and two audibles at once.
narrators should stop trying to be actors and changing their voice to be different people, I have returned several books because of this. They should simply read the book as you would be reading it in your mind......without these nonsensical attempts to sound female, British, happy, sad, etc..etc. The story might not be too bad, and I actually tried to push on with it, but at a certain point could not take even another word from him !
all of your narrators should be told not to try to act out a book, and stop with these irritating attempts at acting and just read the book....period !
It depends; if they are like me and occasionally like a light, easy read...then yes.
Haven't listened to anything else by Mitzner.
The narrator was fine - I'm not sure there was much more he could have done with this text.
Hard to believe the central premise of this, which was that anyone would consider the case open-and-shut. The prosecution had no murder weapon, no physical evidence putting the suspect at the scene, and no clear motive. The only "evidence" against the suspect was a song which could, if you listened very selectively, sound like a threat to commit a crime (and not even the precise crime that was committed).
I would expect any defense lawyer worth his salt to knock that out of the park, but everyone acted like the suspect was completely doomed from the start. The main character is sympathetic, but does start to seem rather dense once you figure out what's really going on and he takes several more chapters to catch up.
I have always loved to read, and now I really enjoy listening to my books as well!!
I have not heard of this author before—it was the narrator who caught my attention when the book was released (Kevin T. Collins has narrated two of my favorite books in the past year or so).
I did enjoy this novel—it was pretty standard issue for a legal mystery, but then it took an interesting turn that I was not expecting! That made it unique, and kept the earphones in until I finished the book!! I see this author has another book available from Audible—I will definitely add it to my library as well.
The narrator was excellent—as I thought he would be. This book was read/performed very well, but not in an overly dramatic way—just right!
Didn't read book but I'm sure based on my experience text would be equally amazing
Character development and plot
Great versatility on all characters
Yes...found myself looking for an excuse to drive
The story seemed good, but I had to quit listening early into it because of the narration.
Didn't make it to the end.
The performance was "over acted" and rushed. Not natural. Too many frequent short breaths. (I thought breaths were typically edited out of today's audio books? I can't listen to ones where they're not. I become conscious of the breaths and they distract me from the story.)
I think the narrator has potential -- I just wish he would *relax*.
This is the 2nd book of Mitzner I am reading. I kind of liked his previous book, and reading several praising reviews, especially talking about the shocking end, I started listening to the book. I actually read it to the end but almost at the middle I already knew how its going to end. I am sorry to say but it is a just another John Grisham wanna'be but not close to the sophistication of Grisham's novels. Readable and page turner but nothing more. At the end I was quite disappointed and thought I should balance the other readers enthusiastic reviews.
Hard to imagine how this book could improve.
No, but it has turned me off to the author and the narrator.
