A stunning debut thriller in the best-selling tradition of Scott Turow and John Grisham!
Alex Miller is a criminal defense lawyer leading the life he always imagined. At thirty-five, he is the youngest partner at New York City's most prestigious law firm, with a beautiful wife and a perfect daughter. 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 crimes involving hundreds of millions of dollars. Alex agrees to take on Ohlig's defense.
Through the course of two trials, secrets are revealed that force Alex to question whether any of the people in his life are who they appear to be. 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, pause-resistant tension, and strong cast of characters, A Conflict of Interest will captivate listeners right up to its electrifying conclusion.

Do NOT cheat on your spouse?
This is a story with a definite moral: If you cheat on your spouse, you get punished, and you have to accept this punishment meekly. This moral is illustrated for the reader in two different strands of the story, probably to drive it home to you: If you cheat on your spouse, and you then lose your job (due to an anonymous call from your spouse), you will come to see this life-changing event as good for yourself (cleansing?). Or you might even go to prison for murder (though you're innocent), and for a witness not to come forward is quite acceptable, since ... - you guessed it - you cheated on your spouse. If you like this kind of moral, plus a relatively loose-knit story without a real plot, go ahead and buy the book. Personally, this book has certainly taught me one thing: I won't buy any more books by Mitzner.
