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)

    "Predictable good lawyer vs. bad lawyer story"

    This book is well read, but not well written. It was predictable from the early chapters, without subtleties in characters or plot. I was tempted not to finish this, except I had predicted who was "good" and who was ultimately "bad," and wanted to confirm my assumptions. A frustrating listen at times, focused on pubic hairs left on bedding, an incompetent jurist, and a missing baseball bat!
    One sometimes wonders how a protagonist can be so dumb, when the reader is screaming:
    "It's your girlfriend, idiot!"

    Don't know what I want to be when I grow up. Trip's cool though. Use Audible to make gym-training sane... And rip my imagination.

    Story
    "Enjoyed this story when Grisham wrote it..."

    (1) The protagonist is a wimp
    (2) Kevin Collins' reading makes him wimpier
    (2) Grisham wrote the story better.

    This is a predictable lawyer thing with few twists not found in "The Verdict". I'd recommend that you rent Paul Newman's interpretation of virtually the same lead character in the 1961 movie. They'll cover most of the same ground in 90 minutes and save you hours of listening time.

    All that said, Mitzner has a few different twists and presents his burnt-out, alcohol
    ic has-been a tad uniquely and it's a good enough story that revisiting it here was like going back and rereading an interesting classic.

    Conclusion... If you've not read the Verdict... save your money/time and go get it first. Then, wait a couple of years... and read this. If you did read Verdict some time ago, well you're probably ready to listen to this.

    Not sure I'll listen again to a Collins reading. May.... may... read the next Mitzner. Not right away though.

    Oh.... a last point... How many stars to give the story? Well 5 when Grisham thought it up... But when it's served warmed-over... Hmmmmm.... Okay it's still a good, if not original tale. So let's give it three stars with at least one left-over from Grisham.

    Story
    "Easily one of the worst legal thrillers"

    The excessive pop culture references cheapened the story, and the author's attempt at a more literary opening (by converting years and months into minutes) only made him lose track of the timeline of his own story, so that the protagonist keeps saying months later that it's been 18 months since the catastrophic event that turned his life upside down. I cannot even summon the willpower to list all the bad metaphors and examples of cringe-inducing writing, because verbatim quotes would require another listen. The plot was pretty flimsy, and not even on a par with a typical TV police procedural (I must admit TV writing has come a long way). The narrator did not fare much better, unfortunately. I will not spoil it for other readers by revealing how he sounded out the word "eschew," but allow me to say that the word was hardly recognizable.

    Story
    "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.

    Story
    "Great Plot Twists in the final hour"

    I've read two of Mitzner three books so far. This one and Conflict of Interest. Different characters but almost exact same "type of character / setting". Disenchanted Manhattan lawyer in a dehumanizing "Big Firm" / white shoe environment. Sound familiar to Grisham, Turow fans?

    Both stories were solid and kept my interest with solid narrator. What the author does in both is "throws the reader/listener a curveball" in the last hour. The verdict comes in on "the big case" but then we learn "what we thought was, wasn't".

    I have the 3rd book in my queue. Again, he uses "a formula" but it works.

    Story
    "Enjoyable and worth a listen"
    If you could sum up A Case of Redemption in three words, what would they be?

    A respectable story.


    What other book might you compare A Case of Redemption to and why?

    Not really comparable to any story. I sure most would like to compare it to other legal drama's. I haven't read a ton of legal drama's outside of John Grisham and Scott Turow, this story isn't really comparable which is a good thing because I tend to try to find original types if that's possible.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    He could have done better when trying to talk like rap/hip hop artist. He was kind of comical.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, pretty long and would need a break.


    Any additional comments?

    Maybe this is the beginning of a series, and if so I would continue to listen.

    "Like his first book much better."

    I loved Conflict of Interest and kept watching for another Adam Mitzner book. I, however, was rather disappointed in Case of Redemption. I thought the author was too wordy in some areas and then took "short cuts" to tie his plot together. Hopefully his next book will be more in line with Conflict of Interest.

    "Weak"

    Could not get excited about this story or the characters. After experiencing so many really great legal thrillers by the likes of Scott Turow, John Lescroat; even David Rosenfelt, this was such a poor imitation.
