The attorney informs Aaron that Garkov is looking to switch representation and will pay one hundred thousand dollars just to take the meeting.

Filled with suspense, twists, and turns, Losing Faith will captivate legal thriller fans everywhere.

My Review

I am a fan of Mr. Mitzner. His first book, A Conflict of Interest was a good showing and I was drawn to Adam and his relationship with Faith. So with Losing Faith I was interested to see how Adam and Faith were doing. If anything in this book Adam has grown with his wealth of knowledge and is a force to be recognized with. Although I did like Adam, this was not enough to fully captivate me into fully embracing this story. It was not in your face with the intensity but it was still an enjoyable read. There was a twist that I did not see coming until it was revealed. The way that Adam solved it all was what did keep my interest peaked. This book is a quick read that ended on a good note.
