A powerful and riveting new voice in fiction, Adam Mitzner pulls out all the stops in his follow-up to the highly acclaimed A Conflict of Interest—a gritty, sophisticated thriller that will draw fans of Scott Turow and John Grisham into a world of relentless suspense.
Dan Sorenson was once a high-powered New York defense attorney...but that was before a horrifying accident killed the two most important people in his life. As he approaches rock bottom, Dan is unexpectedly offered the opportunity of a lifetime: defend an up-and-coming rapper who swears he’s innocent of the brutal slaying of his pop star girlfriend. Dan realizes that this may be his only hope to put his own life back on track, but as he delves deeper into the case, he learns that atonement comes at a very steep price.
New York City attorney Dan Sorenson seeks redemption in Mitzner's compelling legal thriller, his second after 2011's A Conflict of Interest. When his wife and daughter die in a car accident, Sorenson stops practicing law and starts hitting the bottle. A chance encounter at a Christmas party provides him the opportunity to get his life back together. Nina Harrington, an associate at a firm representing Capital Punishment Records, asks for his help on a murder case. Legally Dead, a rapper represented by the label, is accused of bashing in the head of his music megastar girlfriend, Roxanne, with a baseball bat. Given that one of Legally Dead's songs is about beating a singer to death with a baseball bat, public sentiment is against him. Believing in his client's innocence, Sorenson pursues a vigorous defense centered on identifying the real killer. The storyline lacks the richness of the best in the genre, but is still head-and-shoulders above most.

A case of Redemption
Great book! I was hooked from the first page. I look forward to the next book.
Time and $ we’ll spent
This is the second book I’ve read by this author. Both have been time (and money) well spent.
