Editorial Reviews

Editors Select, May 2013 - This was my first time listening to a legal thriller, and I can safely say I’m hooked. I had always shied away from the genre, assuming that the plots were too fantastical – but this story has a ripped-from-the-headlines feel, creating a relevancy that will attract both newbies like me and established thriller fans. Mitzner delivers a character driven narrative, while seamlessly blending romance, criminal law, and suspense, keeling me guessing until the very end. Kevin T. Collins does a marvelous job narrating – the emotion that he pours into each character captivated me from the start. I felt all of the triumphs and setbacks of the case, and I found myself deeply invested in its outcome. I really hope that this duo works together again, but in the meantime I’m going hunting for more from both the author and the narrator. —Katie, Audible Editor

Publisher's Summary

The second electrifying thriller from the "gifted writer" (Publishers Weekly) and author of A Conflict of Interest.

A high-profile attorney in the middle of a leave of absence following a personal tragedy is drawn back into the legal arena amidst a media firestorm when he agrees to represent a popular rap artist accused of brutally murdering his pop star girlfriend. With its powerful voice, pause-resisting tension, and strong cast of characters, Adam Mitzner’s novels are reminiscent of such best-selling authors as Scott Turow and John Grisham.

Critic Reviews

"Mitzner's courtroom drama is Grisham-like in suspenseful before-the-bench action....a wicked ride, with more loops and flips than Coney Island's Cyclone." (Kirkus Reviews)
"Ah, the crucible of the courtroom! Adam Mitzner understands its appeal so very well. Devotees of legal suspense will find themselves happily at home, zinging with the intrigue, reeling with the twists, and ultimately well fed with a satisfying (if shocking) resolution. And if you've been away from the fictional halls of justice for too long, A CASE OF REDEMPTION is where you need to come back." (Jamie Mason, author of Three Graves Full)

Only if you are terribly bored

This is the 2nd book of Mitzner I am reading. I kind of liked his previous book, and reading several praising reviews, especially talking about the shocking end, I started listening to the book. I actually read it to the end but almost at the middle I already knew how its going to end. I am sorry to say but it is a just another John Grisham wanna'be but not close to the sophistication of Grisham's novels. Readable and page turner but nothing more. At the end I was quite disappointed and thought I should balance the other readers enthusiastic reviews.

Totally forgettable

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Hard to imagine how this book could improve.

Has A Case of Redemption turned you off from other books in this genre?

No, but it has turned me off to the author and the narrator.

Would you be willing to try another one of Kevin T. Collins’s performances?

No.

The long road back.....

Anyone who has gone through a traumatic event and lost someone close will know that coming back is anything but easy and Mitzner throws in some interesting twists and turns to make it even more interesting. This book was worth the time spent. I highly recommend it!
I will look for more from this author!

Good Trial Lawyer Tale.

Mitzner's characters, from the DA to the Judge,to the Defense Lawyer, ( the main charactet) ring true. As a trial lawyer myself, I very rarely read, or enjoy lawyer books. I have a tendency to pick too many holes in the plot or the trial objections etc. Not to say I didn't do it in this book but overall it was pretty ture to form. In fact, at times, when the author was talking about emotions and the pressures of a trial lawyer he was right on. The characters were very realistic. The Judge is someone I've been in front of many times, some actually worse. The story moves along well, a little sappy at times, but I stayed interested. Overall A good read, especially if you like lawyer books.

A typical court room drama.

This is a fairly typical court room drama. But better. The characters, the protagonist's dilemma make for an original drama. Look forward to the next Mitzner novel.

Engaging Story!

What did you like best about this story?

I loved the plot, the characters and I loved the narration for LD's part. Being an African-American it was hilarious and entertaining listening to him narrate his part.
