    A high-profile attorney in the middle of a leave of absence following a personal tragedy is drawn back into the legal arena amidst a media firestorm when he agrees to represent a popular rap artist accused of brutally murdering his pop star girlfriend. With its powerful voice, pause-resisting tension, and strong cast of characters, Adam Mitzner’s novels are reminiscent of such best-selling authors as Scott Turow and John Grisham.

    Would you consider the audio edition of A Case of Redemption to be better than the print version?

    did not see the print version


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    yeah ::)) living the story with the main character and OMG


    Have you listened to any of Kevin T. Collins’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is second time for Kevin and i shall look for more as well as the author.I believe "A Conflict of Interest" by this author, Adam Mitzner, is a must read for mystery/suspence readers/listeners.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes


    Any additional comments?

    Audio books esp w/ earphone are captured well. I also am considering the whisper sync.

    Landon Reed is an ex-quarterback convicted of organizing a points-shaving scheme. During his time in prison, he found forgiveness and faith and earned his law degree. Now he longs for an opportunity to prove his loyalty and worth. Be careful what you ask for. Harry McNaughton is one of the founding partners of McNaughton & Clay and the only lawyer willing to take a chance employing an ex-con-turned-lawyer.

    There are some odd things about Nate’s new apartment. Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn’t perfect, it’s livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don’t nag at him too much. At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela’s apartment. And Tim’s. And Veek’s.

    From Atlanta's wealthiest suburbs to its stark inner-city housing projects, a killer has crossed the boundaries of wealth and race. And the people who are chasing him must cross those boundaries, too. Among them is Michael Ormewood, a veteran detective whose marriage is hanging by a thread and whose arrogance and explosive temper are threatening his career. And Angie Polaski, a beautiful vice cop who was once Michael's lover before she became his enemy.

    What would have made Triptych better?

    I do not know; however, I believe reading is a judgment of the reader and timing of one's own life.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Karin Slaughter again?

    maybe


    Would you be willing to try another one of Michael Kramer’s performances?

    absolutely


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I believe my comments based more on not enjoying the story.

    Not a bad review.. Read and judge for yourself.
