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)
The story is enticing and, like others have said, it's a page-turner. However, many of the "turns" are far too predictable. I never like it when I figure out plot twists before they happen, and in this case I saw several of them coming -- and I am not very smart. On the other hand, the narration is good and captures the persona of the main character pretty well.
To me this book was a character study of someone who is having an affair...and they just happen to be a lawyer.
I missed the suspense that other reviewers have commented on. The story seemed straight forward and the twists while not anticipated were not shocking. The story really did not focus on the courtroom/law aspects but focused much more on the affair of the lead character.
The book was read very well.
I get so excited sometimes about writing a review..good or bad...that why sometimes I misspell words..lol..
Twist and turns but I was disappointed in the end.. the author could've really made this book four stars with a better ending. thoughout the entire book the author had you thinking that something HUGE was going to happen but it never did...but I liked the narrator..his kid voice was kind of funny..lol
Not a chance.
It would have helped -- but the story line is so bad, that nothing would help.
Probably shorten it by at least 25%
Can't think of any
LeDoux reads like an adolescent--sort of like a male version of a
A better reader.
He talks like a young girl.
The main character seemed to be such a weak cry baby.
It did contain a bit of mystery while details were yet to be presented, but once they story unfolded it was unsatisfying, not mysterious, downright predictable. As a character study it was not deep enough to be of interest. Infidelity often has bad consequences and revenge is not always so sweet, ok, book over. many books have done studies on these issues much better. I simply didnt particularly care about our protagonist who cheats on his wife then lies to send another man to prison because he also cheated, and, I presume we are supposed to like this guy?
Scott Turow still holds the position as the author of the worst written book I have read (Personal Injuries) and this is not that bad, but left me unsatisfied.
A storey that didn't take so long to develop as this did & I lost interest
I found it borinng
I don't know - I didnt read past the 1st 2 chapters
