Publisher's Summary

Earphones Award Winner (AudioFile Magazine)

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.

Critic Reviews

"This outstanding first novel follows Defense Attorney Alex Miller and his young family through the grinding world of high-priced criminal defense in New York City, detailing what can happen to an otherwise nice guy. David LeDoux's minimalist narration style works well. He imbues all the characters with a distinctive sound and unique persona." (AudioFile)
"More twists than a California cloverleaf interchange." (Bookreporter)
"This gifted writer should have a long and successful career ahead of him." (Publishers Weekly)

highly predictable

it was hard not to see every 'twist' coming from a mile away.
The protagonist wasn't likable and evoked little to no empathy.
Narration was fine, just a weak story.

Disappointing

The narrator of this book was about the worst I've heard. At times it was impossible to distinguish between characters as he reads the story with such monotone inflection. The story line itself was as dull as the narrators voice. I would not recommend this book.

Intriguing Twists and Turns!

This engaging story kept me listening long after I should have been doing other tasks. The main character, Alex, was complex and rounded, not simply a hard driving attorney trying a case.

My only complaint would be the author's analogy that obtaining a securities license is the same difficulty as passing the drivers license exam. But I will attribute the comment to the character, not the view of the author himself.

Very enjoyable read (listen) and I look forward to more by Adam Mitzner.

loved it

narration was good. Best moment was when Olig goes to prison and brings the smug bastard down. Then when Alex comes clean. Mom had that set up pretty good., Good book.

Interesting enough to not want to shut off. Adam is a great storyteller and injects just the right amount of twists and turns.

Couldn't stop listening!!!

Another good one from Adam Mitzner!!! Legal thriller with unexpected twists and turns - bam!!! David LeDoux has the 'lawyer' voice - passionate when necessary, and does a decent job with the female roles.

Gripping!

I enjoyed the story and the narrator. I was a little tired of all the fine law details, but the story was excellent! This is the first time I have read this author, and I really enjoy him. He is very similar to John Grisham and Phillip Margolin, but the pace is much slower. I am curious about the next book.

Full of Plenty of Surprises

Another 5-star listen for me. The central theme of marital infidelity sickens me. One affair is seen a long time in the making. That's all I will say about the actual story.
The narrator does an excellent job. Another positive thing about this title is that there is very little profanity. I will definitely be interested in more of Adam Mitzner's novels.

EXCELLENT!

I had never heard of this author before, so I had no clue what I was in for. I only read the description of the story and saw the excellent reviews. I enjoy legal thrillers and this book proved to be one of the better ones that I've read. I will now be adding Adam Mitzner to my short list of favorite authors and reading all of his other works.
