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.

"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)
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.
Anyone who has gone through a traumatic event and lost someone close will know that coming back is anything but easy and Mitzner throws in some interesting twists and turns to make it even more interesting. This book was worth the time spent. I highly recommend it!
I will look for more from this author!
Mitzner's characters, from the DA to the Judge,to the Defense Lawyer, ( the main charactet) ring true. As a trial lawyer myself, I very rarely read, or enjoy lawyer books. I have a tendency to pick too many holes in the plot or the trial objections etc. Not to say I didn't do it in this book but overall it was pretty ture to form. In fact, at times, when the author was talking about emotions and the pressures of a trial lawyer he was right on. The characters were very realistic. The Judge is someone I've been in front of many times, some actually worse. The story moves along well, a little sappy at times, but I stayed interested. Overall A good read, especially if you like lawyer books.
It rekindles my interest in courtroom drama.
the domineering judge
mildly touched about how the lawyer tried ot piece his life back together
Yes. Its a very interesting story and you learn how hard people will strife to accomplish their golds good or bad.
The first love moment with Nina and daniel
The first sex scene
On the road to redemption
The narrator has one accent for most characters its ok though I find it funny
Say something about yourself!
This is a fairly typical court room drama. But better. The characters, the protagonist's dilemma make for an original drama. Look forward to the next Mitzner novel.
Yes. Very well performed. I would try to figure out how I missed the twists!
He does great voices. You can tell the character changes, but none of them are annoying.
No, but it was hard to put down!
I loved the plot, the characters and I loved the narration for LD's part. Being an African-American it was hilarious and entertaining listening to him narrate his part.
