A Case of Redemption by Adam Mitzner

Dan Sorenson was a hot-shot lawyer who fell apart after experiencing personal loss.   Down on his luck, he accepted an opportunity to redeem himself by helping a potentially innocent man in a high profile case.  The chance to save someone who may have been falsely accused was a chance for him to get his life back on track.

Mitzner draws you into the book from the very first paragraph: “This is what my client would say.. and they’d say it with the utmost sincerity, as if they truly didn’t know how to explain the circumstances that gave rise to their seeking out a criminal defense lawyers who charged a thousand bucks an hour.”  From the start it’s clear the reader is being pulled into a John Grisham-like thriller and you know a good courtroom drama is ahead.

For the most part, Mitzner delivered.  I was immediately hooked and read through the book in an afternoon.  The storyline made sense, the characters were relatable, and the plot easy to follow.  My only ‘negative’ was the way he approached the ending.  I didn’t love it.  It seemed to come out of nowhere which is why I give this a 4-stars instead of 5-stars.  However, he did ‘redeem’ himself by offering an interesting twist as part of the ending.  Was I hoping for a different ending? Yes.  Will I still read his next one?  Absolutely yes!
