Overview

A Conflict of Interest by Adam Mitzner

A stunning debut suspense novel in the bestselling tradition of Scott Turow and John Grisham—from a “gifted writer” with a “long and successful career ahead of him” (Publishers Weekly, starred review).

At thirty-five, criminal defense attorney Alex Miller is the youngest partner at New York City’s most prestigious law firm, with the life he’s always dreamed of. 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 a high-profile financial scam involving hundreds of millions of dollars.

When Alex takes on Ohlig’s defense, secrets are revealed that force Alex to question the motives of all the people in his life. 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, pulse-pounding tension, and strong cast of characters, A Conflict of Interest will captivate readers until its electrifying conclusion.

I love thrillers and add the legal to it, it becomes even more fascinating. Alex's father has just passed away and he finally gets to meet the all illusive Michael Ohlig. Someone he has heard about most of his life but never met. When they do meet Ohlig asks Alex to represent him in a criminal investigation that is going on with one of his companies. Alex has a lot to take in. His dad just died and this mystery friend just asked him to represent him. Alex's job has him already working way too much, and he doesn't think his wife would appreciate the added load. I guess he should have listened to his wife! ;) Nothing good happens when you don't listen to your wife...hehe Plus his marriage was already in a lull... Needless to say, as soon as Alex takes Ohlig's case things in his personal life, and work life start to change. Work is getting confusing. It seems that Ohlig and his life are more intertwined than he thought. As secrets come out, Alex finds out that mixing his personal life and his work life together is a recipe for disaster. I really enjoyed this book. It kept me on my toes and the narrator was great. I devoured the book in just a couple of days. Usually I only listen when I am cleaning or driving, but I found myself with my ear buds in listening to it all the time. Without giving the ending away, I love how everything is discovered and how Alex has to face the choices he has made. If you like legal thrillers, I think you will enjoy this one. I listened to it and I think I am glad I did. There is a lot of legal stuff in there that I probably would have skipped over if I was reading it....but it is important. I would have missed some things if I read it. Content: Language, and sexual innuendo, and some sex, but I don't remember it being explicit. Source: I bought this book on Audible for myself. I was not compensated in any way for the review. These are my own PERSONAL thoughts on the book.

At first glance of A Conflict of Interest, I jumped at the opportunity to read this book. I wanted to read it because my husband loves reading law and learning law, he is studying Criminal Justice and then wants to go to law school (we live 5 minutes from his dream law school). About 1/3 of the way into the book, you'll learn the meaning behind the title of the book. A Conflict of Interest is full of secrets and lies that make you question every character in this book. All throughout, I wondered why any of the characters did what they did. Their reasoning behind their actions are revealed and it all begins to make sense. A Conflict of Interest is Adam Mitzner's first novel, and he's a master at keeping the reader immersed within the pages of his book. I did not agree with some of the decisions Alex Miller made, nor the actions he took. There were times that I pitied him and others that I despised him. Sometimes I felt he got what he deserved but then I'd root for him to all work out for the best. I could see A Conflict of Interest made into a movie or even a mini series. The characters were relatable and real to me. After reading the book, I can understand why each character did what they did. They each had their secrets that eventually came out and the characters faced them. There were twists and turns that kept my interest. I read this book in less than 3 days, since I didn't want to put it down. The novel, A Conflict of Interest in a page turner that keeps you on the edge of your seat.
