Alex Miller – Defense Lawyer working for a large New York law firm.
Michael Ohlig – CEO of a Large brokerage firm.

A Conflict of Interest is Adam Mitzner’s debut novel, and is a good one. The story revolves around Alex Miller. On the day of his father’s funeral, he is approached by an old friend, Michael Ohlig. Ohlig is being charged by the government in a fraud investigation. It seems that his company persuaded investors to buy stock that they may or may not have known was worthless.

There are a lot of plot elements involved. You have betrayal, marital issues, uncovered secrets, and you have to discover whether Ohlig is guility or not. Some of the aspects were a bit foreshadowed and I could see them coming. However, being it’s a debut novel I was willing to overlook that. In so doing, I found it an enjoyable story.

There is a some strong language and adult situations, so it’s definitely for the older teenage/adult reader. However, I think it’s a story you’d enjoy reading. I look forward to reading more from this author.
