A Case of Redemption | [Adam Mitzner]

A Case of Redemption

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.

Audible Editor Reviews

Editors Select, May 2013 - This was my first time listening to a legal thriller, and I can safely say I’m hooked. I had always shied away from the genre, assuming that the plots were too fantastical – but this story has a ripped-from-the-headlines feel, creating a relevancy that will attract both newbies like me and established thriller fans. Mitzner delivers a character driven narrative, while seamlessly blending romance, criminal law, and suspense, keeling me guessing until the very end. Kevin T. Collins does a marvelous job narrating – the emotion that he pours into each character captivated me from the start. I felt all of the triumphs and setbacks of the case, and I found myself deeply invested in its outcome. I really hope that this duo works together again, but in the meantime I’m going hunting for more from both the author and the narrator. —Katie, Audible Editor

Publisher's Summary

The second electrifying thriller from the "gifted writer" (Publishers Weekly) and author of A Conflict of Interest.

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.

What the Critics Say

"Mitzner's courtroom drama is Grisham-like in suspenseful before-the-bench action....a wicked ride, with more loops and flips than Coney Island's Cyclone." (Kirkus Reviews)

"Ah, the crucible of the courtroom! Adam Mitzner understands its appeal so very well. Devotees of legal suspense will find themselves happily at home, zinging with the intrigue, reeling with the twists, and ultimately well fed with a satisfying (if shocking) resolution. And if you've been away from the fictional halls of justice for too long, A CASE OF REDEMPTION is where you need to come back." (Jamie Mason, author of Three Graves Full)

    "Excellent & Surprising."
    Where does A Case of Redemption rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book is incredibly well preformed. It has many many layers and keeps you intrigued and on the edge of your seat for the duration.
    I loved the narrator, I have listened to many many audio books, this guy was so good, he really embodied the main character.
    I would recommend this book wholeheartedly, I wish I had purchased this book rather than some of the other trash I have listened to lately.


    Which character – as performed by Kevin T. Collins – was your favorite?

    The main character, Daniel.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It was surprising, especially the 3rd part


    Any additional comments?

    Great listen....

    I am a business owner, but don't much like books on business. Like English mysteries, cozies that aren't very cozy. I really want to like fantasy and science fiction but everything I try like that seems disappointing. I like some spy novels. I am a grandmother and I am in a book club.

    "Reader sounds too young."
    Would you try another book from Adam Mitzner and/or Kevin T. Collins?

    I am going to write down their names so I don't get fooled into buying another of their books.


    Has A Case of Redemption turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    Would you be willing to try another one of Kevin T. Collins’s performances?

    No


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

    Disappointment


    Any additional comments?

    The narrator sounds like a teenager, and the protagonist is supposed to be a widowed lawyer. The reader doesn't sound old enough to be married much less practice law.The story sounds silly being read by this guy.
    The writer often writes"smirk" when he means smile. A smirk is an especially nasty smile, and every time I heard it, it made the story come to a complete stop for me while I tried to figure out what was going on...

    "okay story, okay narration, okay overall"

    I really like his other novel, A Conflict of Interest. That book was really good. This one was just okay. I guess one can't write a really good book all the time. The end of the book saves it from being a 3 star novel. I think the narrator is just a little over dramatic in the reading, but that might just be me.

    "What's the fuss about?"
    Would you try another book from Adam Mitzner and/or Kevin T. Collins?

    This books disappoints. The romance was barely credible, the characters were flat. This was a formula book. I was taken in by good reviews, but given all of the creative characters and premises out there, this book was deeply disappointing.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The performance was overly dramatic. I often thought the narrator was close to tears. I was close to tears too, although for different reasons.

    "Emotional reader"

    The story sounded like an interesting premise but the reader made the protagonist sound like such a whiney emotional person that he wasn't believable as a tough courtroom lawyer. I couldn't get past a couple of hours listening to him.

    "Can anyone say "Paul Newman"?"

    I bought this book based on some of its reviews. Mistake! I found it uninspiring, all too predictable and lacking depth. I hung on until the end as I had nothing else to listen to at the time and was rewarded only in having my lowered expectations confirmed. From the get-go I kept thinking of Paul Newman in the Verdict with regard to one of the main characters and was unsurprisingly correct in the connection. Unlike some reviewers promised there were no court-room heroics or drama for that matter. So not the best legal thriller I’ve read or listened to by far.

    "waste of time and money"
    Would you try another book from Adam Mitzner and/or Kevin T. Collins?

    No, this book had an excess of legal explanation which most of us already know and I could not empathize with the characters. I just didn't care what happened.


    Has A Case of Redemption turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, I like this genre.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    His reading was over the top. Over acted.


    Any additional comments?

    I should have returned the book. A "1" may be harsh but this is the first time I have felt so strongly that I am writing a review.

    "The ending was weak"

    The ending was weak after a very excellent 3/4 book listen to have such an abrupt ending.

    "medeocre book"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    it was ok. the thrid part of the book was the best.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    the predictable romance between the two lawyers.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Kevin T. Collins?

    maybe. i would hesitate but if the book sounded real good i would give them another chance.


    Do you think A Case of Redemption needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    no!


    Any additional comments?

    i think the defendant constantly lying shows that a lot of time is saved by telling your lawyer the truth. the constant lying of the defendant made the book drawn out. if the lawyers knew the facts correctly the book would have moved a lot smoother.
