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)
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.
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.
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.
the detail is a little too much.
this was my first book and not hopeful on any more
the dragging was better with his reading would have skipped if not for him
wonder more about lawyers and there morals
Conflict of Interest is a long legal procedural. I couldn't empathize with a single one of the characters.
This is a superb first novel. Mitzner is certainly reminiscent of Turow. He has a great future in the genre, and if he does not go over the top the way Turow did, in my opinion, he will surpass Turow. Not quite there yet, but it was a fantastic first.
Many twists and turns, many surprising convergences, and an enlightening exposure to the underbelly and faults of the white collar crime justice system all mingling with the drama of family.
Now this is how to do a novel about lawyersl!!! If books were meals, this would be a sumptuous 5 course meal, with each dish delivering a mouth-watering, exciting new experience, and plenty of unanticipated, delicious surprises, culminating in an unexpected dessert. Using the same metaphor, a typical John Grisham novel would be a MacDonald's burger....good tasting, but formulaic, not particularly creative, and predictable. I'm worried about Adam Mitzner.....how is he going to top this one!
I am a Grisham fan and this book just didn't hold onto to me
It was stretched out too far with not enough story
'the sunshine state diva
I didn't really enjoy this book. it was to predictible from the start. There was no real mystery in the plot. There was only one surprise plot line for me in the story.
The ending was the best part of the book, because it was ending, although again predictible.
Not unless the author was someone I really liked.
No, I skipped through some of the performance once the plot was established because it didn't hold my interest and I just wanted it to be over.
