Jonathan Caine is a true master of the universe - a currency wizard with a trophy wife, a penthouse condo with a view of the Statue of Liberty, and the desire for more - when his world comes crashing down, spiraling him into a relentless fall from grace. Devastated, Jonathan returns to his hometown to care for his ailing father and attend his 25th high school reunion, where he becomes reacquainted with former prom queen Jacqueline Williams. Back in the day, Jackie didn't even know Jonathan existed.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Girl from Home to be better than the print version?

I loved Adam Mitzner's latest book The Girl From Home. I was pleasingly surprised how much I enjoyed his departure from the courtroom to the world of high finance. This talented young author has consistently delivered the goods and has a long promising career ahead of him. I look forward to reading the next book he writes.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading Adam Mitzner's theirs novel Losing Faith. Mitzner's novels are all very well written and all involve surprise endings that even seasoned mystery and legal thriller readers will have trouble guessing. With his third novel, Mitzner has cemented his reputation as a writer in the class of John Grisham or Scott Turow.
