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)

Weak

Could not get excited about this story or the characters. After experiencing so many really great legal thrillers by the likes of Scott Turow, John Lescroat; even David Rosenfelt, this was such a poor imitation.

Surprisily satisfying

Where does A Case of Redemption rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Very high. It has been a long time since a book ending surprised me, but this one did, with multiple plot twists at the end that answered every question.

What did you like best about this story?

As a non lawyer, I was led through the legal process with just enough information to make things make sense, but not so much as to be "preachy".

What does Kevin T. Collins bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Good differentiation between voices and just the right emotional inflections when needed

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The ending was awesome

Any additional comments?

Mr. Mitzner is a great craftsman. Well done.

Difficulty Moving On

He worked for a high powered law firm. He had recently made partner. He and his wife had finally planned a vacation. His wife and daughter would drive down first and he'd follow in a couple of days. However, the first day on vacation, someone ran a red light and his wife and daughter were killed.

He was unable to forgive himself and continued to stay home and has been drinking and going to bed drunk. There were sufficient funds in the bank.

A female attorney approached him and implored his help in a criminal trial where her client is being charged with first degree murder, the brutal murder of his girlfriend, a high profile pop singer. Her client declared his innocence and she believes that he is innocent. Her client was a talented rap artist. She explained that someone had informed her that he would be the guy to go to but he was no longer working.

This did not deter her. She went to his apartment and with much encouragement he agreed to help her. This was the ultimate opportunity for him to learn if he'd be up to the task. He became more involved as each day passed.

He continued to work and started to question the other attorney, who has now moved in with him. He knew that he had to follow through with his theories even if what he was thinking proved to be right. He hoped for the best.

The narrator, Kevin T. Collins, did a great job. The many voices were well done as were the emotions expressed by them. I enjoyed the quality of the mystery. The characters were well developed and believable. The book held my interest throughout. I read his first thriller,
A Conflict of Interest, and enjoyed it too. There was action and suspense which kept me wanting to continue listening. I think that if you're interested in mysteries, this was a good one.

Snore fest

If you are looking for a book to put you to sleep, this one works great. I have hundreds of titles in my library and this is one of the worst books I've listened to. I could not finish the book; I simply do not care how it ends.
