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)

Excellent

I loved this book.The only reason I took one star away from the "story" is because I saw the ending coming a little earlier than I would have liked. That said, everything else was fantastic. The character development. The plot. The twists and turns as the two attorneys keep uncovering more and more lies their client has told. And the PERFORMANCE! Mr. Collins does an absolutely phenomenal job with each and every line, each and every voice, bringing the story to life almost like if you were watching it happen.

I really liked Mr. Mitzner's first book. This one is even better. As I said in my review for his first, I hope he writes fast!

I Don't Agree With the Reviews

I just finished listening to A Case of Redemption and rushed to the computer to write this review. No synopsis here - just my feelings about the book.

I did not enjoy this book and I would never recommend this book to a friend. I actually almost gave it 2 stars. I had read many positive reviews so I went in with high expectations. I keep wondering if I listened to the same book everyone else did. I get that books are a very personal matter. I wish I could explain more clearly (without giving anything away) why I felt I wasted my time.

I wanted to quit the book many times but hung in there because the last chapter was suppose to be so "shocking" - yet I found nothing shocking about it. This is coming from someone who rarely can figure out an ending.

This was not a page turner. I wasn't filled with suspense. I didn't find the characters likeable. The judge was so over the top - I almost fast forwarded through some of the court scenes.

I will stay clear of Collins as a narrator. His voice was forced, irritating and he over enunciated. Although, I think he did switch between characters well and had no issues with how he did female voices.

If you want to read a good crime/court room or suspense novel - stick with the likes of Grisham,Turow, Wm Landay or M. Connelly.

MUST READ!!!!!

If you could sum up A Case of Redemption in three words, what would they be?

Compelling ... Suspenseful ..... Surprising.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The main character Dan was my favorite in the book of course. His character was very well defined and developed. He could at times be likable an unlikable.

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

The narrator was great! His voice and performance brought the story images to mind.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I didn't want to pause the book at all.

WOW! I did not see that ending coming!

Lots of novels have surprising twists and turns that the reader may not see coming. A Case of Redemption has an almost uniquely stunning twist at the end.

I seldom down rate a audio novel based on narration, but in this case I felt the narration, while adequate, was so far below the quality of the story that it lowered the the listener experience.

Recommended!

An Interesting Listen

I like this writer. His stories are usually very interesting. This story had a strong beginning, middle and an ending that at first I thought "what the hell" does that do for the ending of a pretty good story and what does that have to do with redemption?!!. But upon reflection, I think the attorney did get his redemption afterall, but not in the way that he had hoped it would be.

Suffering the loss of his wife and child, this attorney agrees to take on a "hot button" case that he believes will help him redeem himself if he can save the defendant from a "death" sentence. He had just won a case even though he knew the defendant was guilty. And now he is suffering the tragic loss the his family. He is feeling guilty that he was a workaholic and didn't spend enough time with his wife and child before they was tragically taken away from him. He thinks that maybe if he could help save an innocent man's life, he could redeem himself in the process.

The story moves along at a good pace and had good twists and turns, and the ending had a good "didn't see it coming" twist. At first I was totally disappointed but after reflection I realized that, Yes, the attorney did save a person's life but not in the life or death kind of way he had hoped for, but from a more romantic kind of way.

The narrator did an excellent job with differentiation between male and female voices. Kevin T. Collins' voice is soothing yet with lots of energy. The kind of narration that I like. The price for this novel is low and worth the listen... Recommend.

Wanted to like it

I didn't enjoy this book as much as I thought I would. The ending was obvious to me too early on. The characters were superficial. Mr. Collins narration was often excellent, but he has a habit of making his voice go up at the end of sentences--I don't mean questions here--that drives me nuts. I tried to ignore this at first, but by the middle of the book I found myself repeating whatever he said when he did this.

Good Story, Well Performed

My second novel by Mitzner and happy to report both were well done. Collins delivered the story with just the right amount of inflections to add to the shock and awe scenes and yet keep the story believable and dramatic. I've listened to some very average novels lately and this one was a nice upgrade. Five stars don't come easy from me, but I think Mitzner deserves the award...hope you agree. Cheers

The only book I've written a review for!,,

If you could sum up A Case of Redemption in three words, what would they be?

Great. Captivating. Shocker.

What was one of the most memorable moments of A Case of Redemption?

The ending takes you by surprise. Just when you think you know what's going to happen the opposite does.

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

You could feel the characters emotions.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Legal thriller

Any additional comments?

One the best books ever. I've never written a review before that's how good this book is.

Thumbs Up!

The second legal drama in the series but with a different lawyer, with one or two crossover characters from the first novel but is definitely a standalone. I enjoyed it a lot more then the first book our high profile attorney easily carrying the one person narrative and taking us through the complex American legal system easily. Again I could not put this down, the casualness of the curve balls thrown had me glued and entertained - wonderful,

Best yet

I had read another Mitzner book and thought it was ok. I was a little reluctant to try another. Most of the reviews were good, but as always there were a few which tried to put me off. How wrong they were. This story is about a different lawyer and is really enjoyable. Great narration brings the story to life. Well worth listening to.
