Publisher's Summary

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.

    Story
    "The protaganist was nuts"
    Would you try another book from Adam Mitzner and/or David LeDoux?

    I think David LeDoux does a great job reading the book. Its written in a first person narrative that wears rather thin. Although the story has a few twists and turns, the ending is predictable and the entire book leaves you a bit unsatisfied.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Adam Mitzner? Why or why not?

    I don't think I'd try another Mitzner book for awhile.

    "A good listen but predictable"
    Would you listen to A Conflict of Interest again? Why?

    Yes, I thought it was well written, if a little predictable, but enjoyed the Courtroom scenes and the ramifications of the accused and the accuser. Well written and well narrated.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    This book had potential but just missed. The main characters were not compelling and fell flat. There are some nice twists and turns in the story but overall it didn't work for me. Save your credit for something else.

    "UGH!!!"

    The author must have been paid by the word for this story. It is long winded, tedious and painfully boring.

    Mobile and Web developer, Audible member since 2004. Trend towards mystery-thrillers just for fun, but read most everything of substance (i.e. no romances here).

    Story
    "Navel gazing. Didn't care - didn't finish."

    This book reads like a self-consumed diary of a teenager. So much time is spent going over and over and OVER the flirting and building relationship between Alex and his associate that the story is lost. Frankly, I didn't care about Alex (or any other character, for that matter) enough to care about his possible extra-marital affair. I got to that point in this book where I ask myself "Do I care about this character? Do I want to know what happens to him?". With this book, the definitive answer was no. Moved on, didn't finish, and that's saying a lot. Disappointed I wasted a credit on this.

    "Twisted!"
    What did you love best about A Conflict of Interest?

    The story is very well written, it keeps you interested and wanting more. I finished the audio book and continued to think of the characters and what if.... Very good book, I bought a printed copy.

    Story
    "TWISTS AND TURNS ABOUND!!"
    If you could sum up A Conflict of Interest in three words, what would they be?

    Lots of surprises!!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Oleg. It was always a mystery as to who he really was and how guilty he was or wasn't.


    Have you listened to any of David LeDoux’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This was my first listen to this narrator. Enjoyed his performance. He added alot to the quality of the story.


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

    The revelation of the job loss. Don't want to give away too much.


    Any additional comments?

    This was a pretty well thought out work of mystery. It seemed that just when you think you are figuring out the story and characters, another twist gets thrown at you!!
    Pretty cool!! Liked the story and the "hard to put down" continual story line.

    Story
    "Pedestrian: A Courtroom drama with NO drama"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Although I am a big fan of this genre, this book is uninspiring.

    I can't believe anyone thought this was a good read/listen. The story was unoriginal, boring, lacking in believability, humorless and had no flow. Obvious plot 'twists'. It was really bad.


    What was most disappointing about Adam Mitzner’s story?

    Boring story, humorless.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Performance was OK.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Luckily it wasn't too long.


    Any additional comments?

    Anyone who gave this a good review -like Alan Dersowitz - has lost all credibility as a reviewer in my eyes.

    "Page turner"

    As a lawyer that recently left "Biglaw" I could really identify with the protagonist and the pressure on a lawyer in a big firm. Yes it is actually like that!!! This is an "intelligent" thriller, which explains the procedures and creates tension without the need to add blood and guts. Highly recommended.
