Acclaimed thriller author Adam Mitzner returns with the gripping tale of a high-profile attorney recovering from a personal tragedy who's drawn back into the courtroom - and a media firestorm - in the biggest murder trial in a decade.
Dan Sorensen was once a high-powered New York City defense attorney ... but that was before a horrifying accident killed the two people in his life who meant the most, plunging him into a downward spiral. As he approaches rock bottom, Dan is unexpectedly offered the opportunity of a lifetime: defend an up-and-coming rapper in a murder trial on the front page of every newspaper. Although his client swears he's innocent of the brutal slaying of his pop star girlfriend, proving it will not be easy, especially because he's suspected of bragging about the crime in one of the hottest songs in the country.
Unsure that he's ready to handle such a high-stakes case, Dan realizes that this chance to save a man he believes has been falsely accused of murder just may be his last and only hope to put his own life back on track and achieve redemption for his past sins. But as Dan delves deeper and deeper into the case, he learns that atonement comes at a very steep price. 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 Case of Redemption is a gritty, sophisticated thriller that will draw fans of Scott Turow and John Grisham into a world of relentless suspense.

"Law and Order-like twist-and-turn, moral-quandary suspense needing only the echoing cell door sound effect." - Kirkus
"The storyline lacks the richness of the best in the genre, but is still head-and-shoulders above most. " - Publishers Weekly
"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, acclaimed author of Three Graves Full
