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 page-turner with deeply flawed heroes, sympathetic villains, and totally unexpected twists. I loved it!" (Alan Dershowitz)
"More twists than a California cloverleaf interchange." (Bookreporter)
"This gifted writer should have a long and successful career ahead of him." (Publishers Weekly)
Some one who enjoys legal stories.
Not sure to be honest.
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.
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.
I thought it was worth a listen
not change anything -- maybe learn more about the main characters parents
yes -- he is a good reader -- you can tell the difference in the characters
no -- read it over two weeks with others in between
it was a good book -- good story -- t
I was a little disappointed in the ending but the book kept me right there to the end. good read.
The book was slow to begin with but it grew on me as the plot thickened. I thought the narration was well done.
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.
Inventive story development, and surprising plot twists.
I have no other Audiobook to compare it to at present, but It makes me want to find more to listen to of this same genre.
Not yet, but I definitely plan to do so.
Yes, when Alex lost his mother so suddenly.
Really enjoyed it!
I thoroughly enjoyed this book, great mystery with a spell binding plot.
The evolution of the plot.
Outstanding as he captures the personalities of the characters.
I enjoyed the story. The narrator was awesome. Thanks

I laughed once or twice - it wasn't a comedy
It was an enjoyable listen, but not a stand-out. It kept my interest but I kept waiting for something exciting to happen.
Eh. Pretty predictable.
None of them really stood out.
Yes. someone will do it. I won't go though.
I found this a very refreshing story. Very engaging, keeps you guessing all the way.
