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)
Adam Mitzner is ok but Kevin T Collins is getting on my nerves
Too early to tell
I feel that I wasted my money on this book
Listening since 2004. Mystery, thrillers and anything that can blend with a walk, jog, exercise, long drive or a wait at the airport.
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.
In the mid-upper tier.
Main character, Dan.
Disappointed to say no.
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.
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.
Someone who hates surprises.
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.
The narration was exaggerated and made the characters sound very young and immature.
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.
I loved the whole book....
THE LAST CHAPTER! WOW, what an unexpected ending!
I didn't have a favorite, I loved them all.
Oh Yes, I couldn't quit listening to it.
I love Adam Mitzner's books. I am looking forward to more books from him. The narrator did an outstanding job!
Very high. It has been a long time since a book ending surprised me, but this one did, with multiple plot twists at the end that answered every question.
As a non lawyer, I was led through the legal process with just enough information to make things make sense, but not so much as to be "preachy".
Good differentiation between voices and just the right emotional inflections when needed
The ending was awesome
Mr. Mitzner is a great craftsman. Well done.
Yes, although it was a little slow and predictable in spots, the totally unexpected and strong ending more than made up for any previous slow spots. I loved the ending and truly never expected what happened.
The main character was my favorite. He was a strong character, but had a very humane quality about him.
The last 2 chapters. I can't begin to explain what a great ending this book had. It raised the level of the entire story.
I have read others of his and I think this is possibly his best book.
While this book has been seen as Grisham-esque, I find almost all fictional legal thrillers to be in that category. This book is about flawed characters hoping to redeem themselves professionally and/or personally and to grow from that redemption. Any failure to do that is part of the charm of this book. The plot is simple but a nice ride and the twist is just that a twist. Although it is lengthy it is an easy listen and the time spent with the characters is well worth it.
