A Case of Redemption | [Adam Mitzner]

A Case of Redemption

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.

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)

    Listening since 2004. Mystery, thrillers and anything that can blend with a walk, jog, exercise, long drive or a wait at the airport.

    "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.

    "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.

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

    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.


    What did you like best about this story?

    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".


    What does Kevin T. Collins bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Good differentiation between voices and just the right emotional inflections when needed


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

    The ending was awesome


    Any additional comments?

    Mr. Mitzner is a great craftsman. Well done.

    "A Very Unexpected Ending"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    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.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The main character was my favorite. He was a strong character, but had a very humane quality about him.


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

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    I have read others of his and I think this is possibly his best book.

    "Somewhat Predictable But Well Written"

    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.
