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)
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.
I am going to write down their names so I don't get fooled into buying another of their books.
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...
I'm a technician that does a lot of driving for his job. I use the "windshield" time to listen to audiobooks.
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.
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.
The performance was overly dramatic. I often thought the narrator was close to tears. I was close to tears too, although for different reasons.
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.
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.
Great story twists and turns every were you look. So yes!
Ld the never ending truth of his life
When he busted Nina.
When ld was killed.
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.
No, I like this genre.
His reading was over the top. Over acted.
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.
AUDIBLE MAKES READING POSSIBLE AND EASY FOR ME...I AM VISUALLY IMPAIRED. I WISH THEY HAD ALL THE BOOKS I WANT I WOULD SNAP THEM UP!
it was ok. the thrid part of the book was the best.
the predictable romance between the two lawyers.
maybe. i would hesitate but if the book sounded real good i would give them another chance.
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.
Why ever would I do that?
The sing-song narrating grated on my nerves to the point that I have no idea what this story is about. Goodbye, Mr. Collins - I won't hear your voice again.
