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)

    "A MUST READ, er, HEAR! Engaging and well read!"
    Would you listen to A Case of Redemption again? Why?

    I'm not certain I'd listen to the same book right away, knowing the ending, but it's very entertaining. The narrator is absolutely terrific in all voices, both ethnic and southern accented.


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

    Absolutely couldn't wait to hear this book READ aloud. The narrator seemed to capture the sound and heart of each character.


    What about Kevin T. Collins’s performance did you like?

    Everything!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The way he lowered his voice at the saddest, heartfelt moments... it was so appropriate. His voice inflections were spot-on.His descriptions of people helped you SEE them in your mind's eye.


    Any additional comments?

    This was one of the best reads/listens in a long time, and this authors now in my top 5 faves of all time, that's for sure. It's a very engaging listen. I enjoyed the detailed expounding on trial procedure because it was for the sake of the story. This is one amazing author!

    "Ending knocks your socks off"

    The first several hours were anything but thrilling. "A Case of Redemption" begins like a Grisham production in every respect: Little-guy lawyer, abused and kicked around by life and his former big-time law firm, spends most of his time in a drunken stupor. Suddenly, out of the blue, he lands the Case of the Century -- and along with it, a lissome young lady lawyer with whom he falls in bed almost before you can turn the page. In true Grisham fashion, these two are Underdogs with a capital "U". Not only are they without resources, but they have a quasi-disgusting client who shows few redeeming social values, not to mention that he looks guilty as all get-out. Worse yet, he lies a lot, including to his lawyers. Not just once, but over and over. (Perhaps the first big mystery is why, after getting lied to over and over, these two legal beagles so readily accept whatever he says next as truth, but of course that's a question for the ages.)

    In any event, these two handsome young lawyers, hand in hand, set out to produce Justice for the accused. Quite frankly, much of the tale is so formulaic it's not all that interesting -- and real lawyers, beware. The author takes so many liberties with law and procedure it will have you jumping up out of bed yelling "Objection!" all night long.

    That said, it has a helluva ending. Blew me away -- there were several big reveals, one I anticipated, a couple of others I didn't. Good stuff.

    I don't normally recommend legal thrillers, but I'd read ('read', as in an actual paper book) a previous work by Adam Mitzner -- A Conflict of Interest -- and thoroughly enjoyed it. 'Conflict' was most definitely NOT a formulaic book. It was very unique, unusual, and I liked it a great deal. Unfortunately, that contributed to my frustration with the first half of this book because I was so disappointed. Much of this one is a cookie-cutter replica of every other legal thriller that's maybe sold a million copies but which doesn't hold much interest for me at all. That said, if you can handle a less-than-stellar first part, A Case of Redemption is well worth it for the ending.

    Kevin T. Collins as narrator read very well, no problems there. But if I were casting this book, I would have picked someone with an 'older' more world-weary voice. Collins has a 'aw shucks, gee whiz', boy-scout earnestness about him that doesn't really fit a bruised and abused character like Dan Sorenson. I kept waiting for him to summon his dog Tige at any moment. Still, Collins got the job done, and that's what counts.

    So go for it -- and block out a couple of hours for the ending. You won't want to be interrupted when you start to get close.

    "Legal thrillers can be boring..but NOT this one !!"

    A great book well written and even better read (excellent performance by Kevin Collins). It has all elements that keep you hooked to it : mystery, romance, humor and search for redemption. The only drawback is that you've got very few characters , so it gets relatively easy to identify the villain. also the end is a bit disappointing. Look forward reading more from Adam Mitzer !

    "Good Story Lines"

    I really enjoyed this crime - mystery story. It was cleverly written, and I don't think I've read anything by Adam Mitzner to date. It will be my first and I'll hunt for another one. It was a good story line with a few twists and lots of anticipation. I would recommend for a good read/listen!

    "At Last...A GOOOD Book"
    Would you consider the audio edition of A Case of Redemption to be better than the print version?

    Yes, I download a sample of the book before purchasing the audio version. And the audio version was EXCELLENT.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I enjoy every aspect of this story. I haven't been this enthused about a book in a long time. I don't have any complaints. The best part was the ENDING. I didn't see it turning out that way. I don't want to spoil it, but I was on to this one character early on. But the author made you love her, so it was hard to believe her betrayal in the END. OMG what a novel.


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

    Kevin was awesome. A great narrator. His best characters were the Judge and a weeping Nina.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes, I literally GASPED when the Judge announced LD had died in prison. I wanted to cry. I was also moved when Dave let his love go...It took a strong man to do so... the power of the Poonanny.


    Any additional comments?

    I would highly recommend this book to all. There is something in this book for all readers. If you like legal suspense...THIS IS FOR YOU.

    "Buttah"

    Adam Metzger’s novel A Case of Redemption is a legal thriller on the lines of John Grisham’s. As a lawyer in his day job, he has the trial pace, the witness panic and the ability to roll with the punches down.


    Dan Sorenson, this books protagonist, is a highly successful Madison Avenue defense attorney with a high profile win under his belt. After his wife and daughter are killed instantaneously he trades in his ambition for a booze filled depression. This book is his recovery with another high profile trial.


    There is no sluggish part in this novel. It’s slick, fresh and smooth; a real page turner. I wouldn’t call this a thriller more a gasper. Though there are many twists and turns - you are not on the edge of your seat racked with worries – more not being able to put it down for you cannot imagine how this will turn out.

    I have a few pesky complaints…. The character’s profiles were quite similar to those in his previous book that I also enjoyed. The judge was a bit over the top. All in all though I still am a charter member of the Adam Mitzner fan club and look forward to his future works.

    Any additional comments?

    This was my first time listening to this category and I really enjoyed it! I think people that don't normally listen to legal mysteries would still enjoy this book. The book uses legal terminology but manages to say it in a way that you understand even if you don't know anything about the legal system. There are some parts that you see coming from chapter 1, but hold on because there will be a twist that you don't see! My mouth dropped open during the last chapter! I highly recommend this book!

    "GARBAGE!!!!"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A non stereotypical black character and turning him into a stereotypical idiot. How classic. And a sorry excuse for a lawyer. If that's a lawyer, then thank goodness this is a work of fiction. Because, if need be I would have to represent myself.


    What was most disappointing about Adam Mitzner’s story?

    The entire story was disappointing. Stereotypical, negative, predictable and juvenile. Just SAD....


    How could the performance have been better?

    I can't blame the narrator. It was horrible to start.


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

    Disgust. What a totally disconnected author. He should stick to what he knows. If you vrew up ivy league. Then admit that you're clueless to everything else. And insensitive.


    Any additional comments?

    Yuck.....
