A story ripped from the headlines: "Brokerage firm bilks seniors out of life savings with worthless stock." Or is it as simple as that? Could the prosecution have an ulterior motive? Adam Mitzner takes his readers on a page-turning, winding road to get to the ultimate truth. Alex Miller is an important lawyer who always wants to believe in the innocence of his client. Michael Ohlig is an old friend of the family who needs help, but, he doesn't want Alex to tell his parents that he will be representing him. Why not? What possible harm could come from telling his family? From the beginning, the relationship between Adam and Michael has its secrets. Secrets that could either free or convict Michael; secrets that could shake Adam to his core. Is Michael the corrupt swindler the prosecution claims? Is he innocent? Or does the truth lie somewhere in the middle. This legal thriller will grab you from the beginning and leave you wanting more from this author at the end.
Adam Mitzner has a hit on his hands! His characters and storyline kept me reading and guessing. I enjoyed the bantering in the law office, but also the description of the toll it takes on families and lives when someone forgets that there is more to life than a career. I love psychological legal thrillers, and this one didn't disappoint me. I can't wait to read more by this author. Thank you FSB Media for the opportunity to read and review this book!
