Publisher's Summary

A stunning debut thriller in the best-selling tradition of Scott Turow and John Grisham!

Alex Miller is a criminal defense lawyer leading the life he always imagined. At thirty-five, he is the youngest partner at New York City's most prestigious law firm, with a beautiful wife and a perfect daughter. When Alex's father suddenly passes away, Alex is introduced to Michael Ohlig, a rich and powerful man who holds an almost mythical place in his family lore. But Alex is surprised when Ohlig admits that he's in serious legal trouble, accused of crimes involving hundreds of millions of dollars. Alex agrees to take on Ohlig's defense.

Through the course of two trials, secrets are revealed that force Alex to question whether any of the people in his life are who they appear to be. Most importantly, he must decide whether the identity he projects to the world is the man he truly is or even wants to be.

With its powerful voice, pause-resistant tension, and strong cast of characters, A Conflict of Interest will captivate listeners right up to its electrifying conclusion.

    "Great book"

    I'm not much into fiction books but this one popped up on the front page of audible.com so i read the review and bought the book. Two days later a I was done with the 10 or so hours of audio. This is quite an accomplishment since it typically takes me around a month to finish any book. The plot kept me tuning in at any chance I got. The guy that read it did a very good job, I wish I could have him read all the audio books that I buy. It was well written too. All around a very good buy.

    "Excellent debut. Can't wait for #2."

    Thank you, Audible, for recommending this debut thriller. It was well written. Full of unexpected but mostly believable twists. Amusing without the humor getting in the way. Excellently read. Hope Mr. Mitzner is a fast writer.

    "Very good!"
    What made the experience of listening to A Conflict of Interest the most enjoyable?

    It was a pleasantly written story with enough technical information to keep it interesting but not too technical. It was a good story. I found it entertaining yet real from a legal standpoint, with enough twists to keep the listener on their toes! Will watch for this authors next one!

    "Great New Author."

    I'll admit I give up on so many audiobooks due to my tendency to allow my mind to wander. If a story doesn't grab me in the first 10 minutes, I am done with it. Not so with A Conflict of Interest. It got me right away and held my attention until the very end. The narrator was great but it is the author that deserves the praise. I look forward to Mr. Mitzer's future work.

    I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!

    "Not really a thriller at all"

    This is a story about a really screwed up criminal defense attorney in a NYC law firm. It is not a legal thriller in the traditional sense because there is almost no suspense and no action at all. Alex Miller, the "protagonist", is a horrible lawyer and a worse human being. In the end this is simply a useless story about a man who lost his way.

    Story
    "Really pulls you in"

    This is a gripping and complicated story that keeps you wondering until the very end. By drawing parallels between the various characters and their actions, questions of right an wrong, personal responsibility, and justice are brought forward. Very engaging.

    The lower rating for performance is due to acoustic shifts in the audio. It's a technical problem, rather than an issue with the narrartor (who is actually quite good). The problems aren't sufficient to interfere with the story, though.

    "I can't wait for the next book."
    Where does A Conflict of Interest rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is such a well-crafted plot. It kept me guessing for the whole book. I loved the reader and went to the Audiobook website to try to find another book read by David LeDoux, but most of them are short stories, or science fiction. Not my cup of tea. But, in my opinion, both the author and the reader are first-rate, and I will watch for further offerings by either of them. I did see that Amazon has a new book by Mizner available for pre-order that will come out in May. I hope that it has the same narrator, and that it will be available as soon as published.

    "What a great start to summer reading!"

    WOW! I'm anxiously awaiting his next book. I wanted to write my review before I was even finished but I waited. This is 5 stars all the way. Characters - multifaceted and believable; story - compelling and interesting; narrator - excellent for this book. This is an author who, if he lives up to his first book in subsequent books, will have fans who are thrilled as each new book is available. Stay home and write, Adam! We're all waiting.

    Story
    "A man with no character seeks revenge..."

    ...on a man who did him no harm.
    Alex Miller is a tall, attractive, brilliant attorney in one of New York's most prestigious firms. He is married to a beautiful woman who loves him passionately. They have a lovely and precocious young daughter. He goes all out to sacrifice all of this in order to further his career while pursuing another beautiful woman. But that's the best part of Alex.

    In the end this is a story of revenge, yet Alex has never been harmed. He cheats, he lies, he whines, and then he destroys the life of a man who did him no harm.

    To be fair, there are clever twists in the plot. But in the end we are left with a hero with no character. Worse still, he seems to have no hope of redemption.
