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)

    "Wow! I didn't see it coming! What a great story!"

    Don't be fooled by the early chapters of this novel; it is NOT what it seems. It is much better than what it seems! This is the story of an attorney who has lost everything in his life and how one case redeems him and starts his life anew. His court room activities are central and his relationships with other lawyers likewise. However, the story has some devious twists and turns that the listener can't possibly see coming. . . yet in the end, they are quite logical and believable.

    The narration leaves a little something to be desired. . . Collins' voice is a bit pretentious and seems affected at times, but get beyond that because the story is a great one.

    "I wasn't wow-ed"

    I had been listening to a lot young adult books for a while, and I was browsing through my library and saw that I hadn't listened this book yet. I bought it a while ago, but when it was time to download a new book, the cover didn't sell me, and I didn't waste my time checking to look at the summary, but I'm glad I finally did.

    I don't know if I enjoyed this book so much because it was finally not a sci-fi YA novel, or if because I really think it was good. I thought about the book even when I wasn't listening to it. It was surprisingly predictable, I knew who-done-it pretty early on, but I still enjoyed it. I thought the ending was underwhelming, but I'm still glad I listened to it, although I probably wouldn't recommend it to others.

    I can find a book to love in any genre -- a beautifully written classic, an interesting mystery or sci-fi, a trashy romance. Bring it!

    Story
    "Great twists at end! (be careful reading reviews)"

    STORY (legal thriller) - I thoroughly enjoyed this book, but then I'm a real sucker for legal thrillers. A lawyer who's depressed after personal tragedy finds himself bouncing back as he represents a rap star accused of killing his girlfriend. There's a lot of your typical stuff where the lawyer investigates the case against his client and prepares for trial, and if you're a lawyer you will definitely roll your eyes at some of the departures from acceptable courtroom procedure. But the book is still a great listen, and there are two really unexpected twists at the end. I didn't see either one of them coming, so I was totally surprised!

    PERFORMANCE - Very good job, but wasn't awesome so I'm rating it four stars.

    OVERALL - Recommended for anyone who likes the genre. Some cursing and a few sex scenes, but they're not very explicit. Be prepared to hear lots and lots of talk about pubic hairs. Eeeeek!

    "Predictable, but not a complete disappointment"

    For a lover of lawyer-thrillers, this was a ordinary book. Plot was predictable. Nevertheless kept me interested with the style and characters. More like a well made B Class movie.

    "Conflicted.................. Again"

    I was conflicted on his first book because he writes like a smart lawyer - Yet sometimes he writes like a sappy school girl. His court room dramas start good - but end leaving me questions about how smart it was.

    After listening to the first 3rd of the book I was already praising Mitzner, and looking for other books narrated by Collins... Then it got worse

    This isn't a spoiler - But I have a huge question. This is drafted as smart courtroom drama right?...... You'll find in the beginning that a girl was murdered and they blame her black boyfriend and caucasion pubic hairs were found in bed. (ALSO - 2 UNIDENTIFIED FINGERPRINTS)

    Now - Here's where I am upset. They question the detective in charge about the pubic hairs in court... OK...Then the detective said that they never found finger prints from the boyfriend so he must have wiped the place clean - making him guilty. I'm waiting for the aha moment when they go - Well if that's the case - Then the fingerprints must belong to the killer...... Dramatic pause........... THEY NEVER ASKED HIM THE QUESTION. Why did they put finger prints in story then. Why not keep it at only pubic hairs..... I felt like the lawyer was dumb... I'm waiting for it the whole time - They never addressed it.

    It ended on a slightly better note.... I can see why most of the girls wrote good reviews.... It had some nice feel good stories or sympathetic stories to enjoy.... A little much though.

    Your choice.....

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

    In the mid-upper tier.


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

    Main character, Dan.


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

    Disappointed to say no.


    Any additional comments?

    Was really hoping this would be something new and exciting, given it was written by a new-to-me author and has many glowing reviews. The story was enjoyable, but I found it pretty predictable, right down to the must-have pc characteristic of, well, I won't give it away. I figured that part out as soon as a minor character was introduced, and the killer even earlier. The premise of dead spouse/child is so overused. Most disappointing was the implausible ending. The reader was a true gem, probably the biggest reason I listened through to the end.

    "Good legal thriller but ..."

    I like legal thrillers and enjoyed this one except if you are familiar with criminal law the main character will drive you crazy. So many times I thought, "This guy is supposed to be Ivy League? Seriously?" His legal reasoning and lack of knowledge of criminal law are astounding. The only excuse I could give the author is the desire to educate readers. There are better ways to accomplish that though.

    "Predictable"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Someone who hates surprises.


    If you’ve listened to books by Adam Mitzner before, how does this one compare?

    Mitzner's first book was more suspenseful and was better narrated. Although I admit I did not - could not bring myself to - finish the book, the part I listened to was very predictable... boiler plate characters, motives, and actions.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narration was exaggerated and made the characters sound very young and immature.


    Any additional comments?

    I was really looking forward to Mitzner's second novel; too bad this one didn't match up.

    Interesting story, intesting characters and an ending that you never see coming. Great twist! I'll be watching for this author.
