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.


Audible Editor 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


What the Critics Say

"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)

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.

- Elizabeth "Listen to about four audio books a months. Never without one."


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!
