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)

WOW!

Give yourself the best Christmas present ever;download this book and and listen while cooking and washing all those dishes. You won't even mind that others are watching good football or the original Scrooge on TV. Cannot believe that this is Mr.Mitzner's first legal thriller. He is a natural at this game and you will not be disappointed! Narration is equally as fine.

Couldn't Stop Listening

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

Definitely in the top 10

What was one of the most memorable moments of A Conflict of Interest?

The sexual tension and betrayal by Abby. I had trouble liking her from the beginning; probably because she 'used' Alex for her own good. I am also fascinated by his wife's behavior-and how their relationship re-connected.

I did find Alex rather spineless - so spellbound by Abby, but I guess that this what goes on in the corporate world- especially old school law firms like the one he worked for.

I wouldn't have lasted very long-I ended up marrying my boss!

A great read; I LOVED it

Which character – as performed by David LeDoux – was your favorite?

Abbey-I hated her, but at the same time I have to admit that she played Alex alone beautifully.

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

No

Thoughtful character study and peek at the courts

Really enjoyed this book. Entertaining and educational look at the court system as well as an interesting twisting storyline. Characters were all well developed and engaging. David LeDoux is one of my favorite narrators, keeping me involved throughout the story. I'm looking forward to more from both Mitzner and LeDoux.

Highly recommended!

Great New Author.

I'll admit I give up on so many audiobooks due to my tendency to allow my mind to wander. If a story doesn't grab me in the first 10 minutes, I am done with it. Not so with A Conflict of Interest. It got me right away and held my attention until the very end. The narrator was great but it is the author that deserves the praise. I look forward to Mr. Mitzer's future work.

Outstanding Story AND Performance!

I am relatively new to the audiobook world, and have already heard some books where the story was good, but the narrator made it difficult to get through. Not the case here, at all!
The narrator, David LeDoux, brought passion and excitement to the reading. The novel itself, was very, very good; A legal thriller with more surprises than I could count! The entire last hour shocked me, but in a good way. I definetely recommend this book for anyone who enjoys crime novels.

Absorbing

A Conflict of Interest is read with energy and spontaneity working very successfully with the first person narrative. This is an absorbing and very satisfying book with multiple blending themes and an overall tightly crafted plot, convincing characterisation and interesting moral conflicts and resolutions.
At the end Mitzner draws all the themes together in a measured way with a delightful double entendre ending.
Highly recommended.

An excellent read, er, listen!

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

A page turner!

What other book might you compare A Conflict of Interest to and why?

I'd compare his writing to Turow.

Any additional comments?

This book is a fabulous first by a new author. It was compelling in a legal thriller type way with quite a personal twist. The narrator was excellent and his pace was great too.
