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.

    "A Conflict of Interest"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Some one who enjoys legal stories.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Adam Mitzner again?

    Not sure to be honest.


    Would you be willing to try another one of David LeDoux’s performances?

    Probably not, the narration was very poor. The slow deliberate pace was very grating. The sighs, and asides of the main character made him sound a bit like a spoilt teenager.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Irritating - the main character was very weak and the author didn't deal with the irony of mother, son (hero) and the actual father all had affairs. Yet, the main character was behaving as a young teenager with little emotional maturity. The moral dilemmas were not dealt with at all.

    Any additional comments?

    I got this book while trawling around looking for a new author to follow. I am not disappointed! The story started out in a bland enough manner, but suddenly threw in a rather nice twist that grabbed my attention. Thereafter, a succession of twists followed, continuing right to the end. I thoroughly enjoyed 'A Conflict of interest' and will definitely be looking out for more of Mitzner's work.
