    Story
    "Just pure fun!"
    Would you listen to A Conflict of Interest again? Why?

    Yes. The story kept my attention, characters were believable and memorable.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Edge is an overstatement, but it held my interest.


    What does David LeDoux bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He adds some great voices and intonation.


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

    I run and walk while I listen to stories...but I found myself on the other side of town in no hurry to get home.

    Can't say didn't read it.

    No


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Neither. I under estimated the wife.

    Story
    "Very predictable Plot"
    Would you try another book from Adam Mitzner and/or David LeDoux?

    Not really - I picked the big twist at the end 10 minutes into it and only really listened to make sure I wasn't mistaken.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Adam Mitzner again?

    This book didn't grab me and books written in first person narratives can sometimes work - like the Lincoln Lawyer, but this one didn't have the same intrigue.


    What about David LeDoux’s performance did you like?

    He delivered the story well and played the characters OK


    Did A Conflict of Interest inspire you to do anything?

    No

    "Couldn't stop listening!"

    this book was really good. I would sit in the garage not wanting to turn it off in my car. Although some of the plot points were hard to believe the action was quick and completely captivating. Great narration too. Can't wait to read more of this author.

    "Very Good Read, Recommend!"

    This was a very good book, not what expected, hard to predict and it kept me engaged and desiring to get back to it until it was over. I recommend this if you want a good novel. The narrative does ok, but certainly far from one of my favorite narrators.

    "Great story, great narration"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I bought this as it was recommended by Audible, I suppose because I like Michael Connelly stories. Really interesting story with a lawyer angle, it kept me wanting to keep listening and stay in the car, and listen very time I was in the car. It doesn't get better than that for me.

    Story
    "Not bad but drags"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    the detail is a little too much.


    If you’ve listened to books by Adam Mitzner before, how does this one compare?

    this was my first book and not hopeful on any more


    What does David LeDoux bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    the dragging was better with his reading would have skipped if not for him


    Did A Conflict of Interest inspire you to do anything?

    wonder more about lawyers and there morals

    "Couldn't empathize with the characters"

    Conflict of Interest is a long legal procedural. I couldn't empathize with a single one of the characters.
