    Story
    (66)

    His existence shattered by the Great War, Bennett Grey is investigated by an American agent who thinks he may be useful for protecting national security. U.S. Bureau of Investigation agent Harris Stuyvesant's first inclination is to let his fists do the talking. But he's well out of his jurisdiction, having traveled across the Atlantic to dig up clues on an Englishman he believes responsible for terrorist acts in the States.

    Regan says: "Great characters, but plot is a bit of a jumble"
    "Very good story, a little slow in places."
    Overall

    Like all of Ms. King's stories, this one unfolds slowly and deliberately. Usually this serves to build suspense, but it didn't work so well in this story. There were a few places that I found rather tedious and just couldn't wait to get past. Overall, though, it is a good story, rich with scenic detail, history, and interesting characters.
    Narrator Jefferson Mays did a very good job with the material. He has a strong masculine voice, but was still able to do the female voices convincingly. He carried off the various British accents very well.

    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 try another book from Adam Mitzner and/or Kevin T. Collins?

    No. I felt the performance was average at best. The story was tedious and trite. With a lackluster combination like this, I couldn't finish it.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Adam Mitzner? Why or why not?

    No. I'm not impressed with his writing. His attempts to stir up empathy for his male character were clumsy at best. The dialogue was stiff and wordy. And the story just didn't move. I kept waiting for something to happen! Finally I just gave up and deleted the book from my device.


    What three words best describe Kevin T. Collins’s voice?

    Pleasant, average, ordinary.


    Did A Case of Redemption inspire you to do anything?

    Nope.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't waste your time!
